Allegiant 480
Allegiant has made a name for itself as a travel company that gets you to the destination of your dreams at an equally dreamy price. What you may not know is how they have helped change the lives of wish kids right here in Las Vegas.

Allegiant became one of Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada’s community partners in 2011, and has been a leading force in moving our mission forward ever since. First, they made our own wish come true by donating and renovating office space on the company’s Summerlin campus for only $1 per year! This amazing space is now known as The Wishing Place and it is where so many wish kids and their families have come and experienced hope, strength and pure joy. Our savings in annual rent expense means more funds are available for granting wishes each year.

Wish Kids 480

Allegiant’s relationship with the Make-A-Wish family extends across the nation. The company has provided nearly 1,000 free flights for wish kids and their families, and also donates $1 from every Wingz Kid Snack Pack sold on each and every Allegiant flight to our mission.

As Las Vegas’ hometown travel company, Allegiant is particularly proud of its special relationship with Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada, and the company’s team members love having The Wishing Place right on their campus.  This amazing location has also helped more than 150 Allegiant staffers to volunteer with us during 2017!  And as presenting sponsor of our annual Walk For Wishes, the company has donated more than $50,000 to support one of our biggest annual fundraising events. They also bring one of the largest and most enthusiastic corporate teams - so look for Allegiant team members out walking with the rest of our community on March 10!

With everything they do to help kids facing critical illnesses, it’s no wonder Allegiant has been named one of America’s 100 Best Small Companies by Forbes Magazine for five consecutive years. They have also been ranked the Top-Performing Airline in North America three times by Aviation Week, and were recently named one of the state’s most innovative companies by the Las Vegas Business Press in its inaugural Innovation Awards.

We love all of our community partners, like Allegiant, who stand by us, and propel us forward.
