Support An Event
Events provide high-visibility for corporate supporters and an opportunity to meet with former wish children and families who, as Wish Ambassadors for the organization, convey the power and magic of a wish fulfilled.
Increase corporate exposure and align with a nationally recognized charity by sponsoring a Make-A-Wish® Illinois event. Make-A-Wish ranks in the top 10 percent for all commercial U.S. brands for trust, quality, reputation, likelihood to recommend, social impact and emotional connection to consumers according to the 2017 Harris Poll Equitrend® Study US.
Event Sponsorship will:
- Enhance company exposure
- Differentiate from the competition and strategically align your organization with the Make-A-Wish brand
- Support wishes in Illinois
- Provide employees another reason to love working for your organization
- Sponsorship benefits vary from event to event
Our staff would be happy to provide a sponsorship proposal for any of our events.
