Historical Details
Make-A-Wish Foundation® was founded in 1980 in Phoenix, Arizona
Founder: Linda Bergendahl-Pauling
They were inspired by 7-year-old Chris Greicius' story. He was suffering with leukemia and a patrol team granted his wish of becoming a police officer
Make-A-Wish Foundation® first established in Canada in 1983
The Make A Wish foundation is a great charity that helps children grant wished before their illness become severe and it allows them to have the courage to believe that miracles are possible.
A challenging event that offers the chance for
participants to rappel down the edge of a high story building in exchange for raising pledges
These are fundraising events that are used to receive proceeds from public groups
Includes events such as:
Walk- a- thons
Pizza lunches
Gift with donation

Fund Distribution
All funds raised in Canada support our national wish granting program, and go towards for children in local communities across the country
What Makes Us Different?
Our Impact
Unique Features
Most wishes fall under these categories, “I wish to be . . . ”, “I wish to meet . . . ”, “I wish to go . . . ”, or “I wish to have . . . ”.
Ensure the wish is very personal, involves the family and is free from financial worries
Wish experiences are so unforgettable that they inspire children to fight through their medical struggles.
The organization goes beyod the wish child as many parents and/or friends become involved to make a difference
