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.
