RESERVE A SPACE

With the help of volunteers throughout the state, Make-A-Wish Illinois will make over 700 wishes come true for Illinois children suffering from a life-threatening medical condition this year! Wish granters work with our wish children to help them determine their most heartfelt wish and with the staff to help make these wishes come true.

Time commitment varies, but is approximately 10 hours per month based on granting three wishes per year. This includes traveling to wish family homes, wish planning and implementation. Wish granters must have strong communication skills, and be able to respond to wish families and staff within 48 hours.  If you or someone that you know is interested in becoming a wish granting volunteer—please contact Tonisha Daniel  or 312.602.9413.

RSVP is required to each training at least five business days prior to training date. Seating is limited.  Please note we are especially in need of bilingual volunteers!

Latest Status Update

  • Not every child gets to spend the holidays at home. Jaysen, having been diagnosed with a brain tumor, spends large amounts of time at the hospital undergoing difficult treatment. After being referred for a wish at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Jaysen has decided to escape to the sunny beaches of Hawaii when he is granted his wish in the coming months. Hope has propelled Jaysen to maintain a positive attitude, and studies have shown that wishes positively impact children's physical health. Learn more on how you can help to give them hope by visiting bit.ly/GiveThemHopeMAW so that Jaysen's wish can come true.
