Be part of something special.



The North Central Ohio chapter of A Special Wish Foundation, Inc is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to granting the wishes of children and young adults, from birth through age 20, in Erie, Huron, Lorain, and Medina Counties who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening disorder.

In fact, we're the only  major wish-granting organization in the United States that grants wishes to qualifying infants, children, and adolescents from birth through and including the age of 20 years.

Here's how you can help:

Share a Child's story

Know a deserving child with a life-threatening condition? Anyone can refer a child for consideration, and we will contact the family. Brothers, sisters, neighbors, nurses, doctors, coaches, family and friends can all can help be a part of something special.


Volunteers are the backbone of our organization.  Many kinds of volunteer opportunities exist at A Special Wish, and ALL of them are vital to supporting our program and helping us to grant wishes. 


Individual donations are still A Special Wish Foundation’s largest single source of funding. No matter how big or small your donation, your financial support directly benefits wish activities.


“Our wish families know deep love. We help them share that love and discover their dreams.”
