Introducing our 2016-17 State Charity of the Year

Make-A-Wish Michigan

Make-A-Wish® Michigan grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

Explanation of organization: Since 1984, Make-A-Wish® Michigan has granted more than 8,500 wishes to Michigan children with life-threatening medical conditions. We serve children throughout the entire state of Michigan, bringing hope, strength and joy to wish kids at a time when they need it most. To be eligible for a wish, a child must be between 2 ½ and 18 years of age at the time of referral, have a life-threatening medical condition, and have not received a wish from another wish-granting organization. Make-A-Wish® Michigan does not receive any state or federal funding and is only able to grant wishes because of community support, with more than 80 percent of every dollar spent benefiting the wish-granting program. Funds stay in Michigan to grant wishes to Michigan children. Right now, there are more than 550 Michigan children with life-threatening medical conditions anticipating a wish. We need your help to make these wishes a reality.
