30th Anniversary

Now in our 30th year, Make-A-Wish Illinois is setting our course for the future, to achieve our vision of reaching every eligible child in Illinois with a wish. As we look forward, we celebrate our stars, the wish children of yesterday, today and tomorrow, and all those across Illinois who help make wishes work wonders.

30th Anniversary

Reach the Stars

With three children newly-diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition every day, our goal is to reach every eligible child with the healing power of a wish. We invite you to be a part of our exciting future.
