At Make-A-Wish® Illinois, our vision is to reach every child with a critical illness and create an impactful wish journey for them.
We strive to bring hope to these children, to their families, and to communities. We stand for hope, and have done so for 40 years.
We stand against any form of racism.
We stand with our communities of color, especially at this moment, our Black community. We see you, we are here for you, and we are standing beside you.
Our organizational values of Compassion, Community, and Inclusion guide our staff, volunteers, donors, and partners every day and particularly in this remarkably challenging time.
We will continue conducting deeper outreach to underserved communities through our active engagement work, ensuring that we reach every child with a critical illness who needs the power of a wish experience. We invite you to be part of our community.
Every child deserves and will receive our compassion and hope for a brighter tomorrow.
