Donate Airline Miles

Support Our Wishes in Flight® Program

Nationally, Make-A-Wish® would need more than 2.8 billion miles, or 50,000 round-trip tickets, to cover every travel wish each year.

Every mile donated helps wish kids and their families travel to destinations around the world. Once donated, your miles will never expire and are used to support wishes across the country. This is just one simple way you can help grant a life-changing wish experience.

Do you have frequent flier miles to help make wishes come true?

Tax Deductibility

The IRS recognizes award points and miles as a gift or an award from the corporation to the individual. Therefore, points and frequent flier miles donated to charity are not considered tax deductible.
