Local Sponsorships

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. Members of the American Brands Council selected Make-A-Wish as one of the 60 "strongest and most trusted" brands in the country in 2005, one of only three nonprofit organizations to receive this prestigious designation.

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.
