When a child is diagnosed, their world suddenly collapses. They are robbed of a carefree childhood and are forced to deal with realities that no child should have to undergo. So, imagine the joy, elation and gratitude that these children and families experience when they receive an unconditional wish. This gift is unparalleled and unique to Make-A-Wish®
. It is something that no medicine, no doctors and no nurses can provide. And, you can help by becoming an Adopt-A-Wish partner!
The Adopt-A-Wish Investment
The Adopt-A-Wish program offers the ultimate connection by partnering your company's philanthropic investment with a specific child's heartfelt wish. Every dollar donated leverages another dollar of in-kind goods and volunteer services to make each wish come true. Any size company can adopt a wish! Small businesses, large corporations, and start-ups can contribute to the Adopt-A-Wish program.
Different ways your company can Adopt-A-Wish
Give the Gift of a Wish — Every occasion is an occasion to give the gift of a wish in lieu of a present. What better way to honor your employees or clients, than to adopt a wish in their honor. Giving the gift of a wish is an excellent substitution for holiday cards, anniversary gifts, or employee recognition. Choose from three convenient options to acknowledge your gift; each a unique and heart-warming surprise.
Wish Boards — Placing a child's wish board in your office allows clients and employees the opportunity to participate in adopting a wish through the various expenses associated with a single wish. Choose from one of our four types and receive a wish board that breaks down your child's wish expenses, line by line. Encourage coworkers to go in online items together, or offer a match for the overall funds raised.
Wish Reveal Participation — A wish reveal is a special event in which we tell our Wish Kids that their one true wish is coming true. Rally your team and with the support of a Make-A-Wish representative, plan every element of a real child's reveal. We'll provide the child's All About Me form, and ensure you have everything you need to plan the perfect reveal.
Wish Designing — Some of our wishes don't involve travel and stay local! Be a part of the magic and work with your team to plan a real child's full wish experience! We'll provide the child's All About Me form, and ensure you have everything you need to plan a once in a lifetime kind of wish.
