This training is for volunteers interested in becoming Wish Granters. Wish granters work with our wish children to help them determine their most heartfelt wish. Wish granters then work with the staff to help make these wishes come true!

Time commitment varies, but is approximately 3 hours per month based on granting 3 wishes per year. Wish Granters must have strong communication skills, and be able to respond to wish families and staff within 48 hours. Volunteers are asked to complete 2 online trainings prior to attending the in-person training.

Latest Status Update

  • A special Make-A-Wish supporter recently stopped by our office to show her support by donating $50 for children with critical illnesses! After seeing a sign at a Hamra Enterprises Panera Bread, she knew she had to help. "I dropped in a quarter [that day] because I wanted to make a kid's day." At her birthday party, she and forty of her friends also helped to write cards for children about to go on their wishes. "These kids have it really hard, and they should be treated well and respected." She, in the past, has also donated to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and Moriah Congregation. Thank you so much for making wishes come true!
