Make-A-Wish Massachusetts & Rhode Island

Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.


What is the Make-A-Wish Foundation?

Wishes make life better for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. This simple, but powerful belief drives Make-A-Wish.

This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish®. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible.

Most of all, it's the founding principle of our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child.

Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved - wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.

Whatever the odds, whatever the obstacles ... wishes find a way to make the world better.

Student Fundraising & Support

If you’re a student who has decided to not only sign up for an adventure with Choose a Challenge, but fundraise for Make-A-Wish Massachusetts & Rhode Island as well, we want to help! It’s our job to help you out in anyway we can during your fundraising journey. Some of the areas we can help you in include:

  • Creating a fundraising strategy plan and timeline

  • Provide new fundraiser ideas for you and your team

  • 1-on-1 support and advice along the way

As your selected charity, we’ve appointed one of our own team members here to provide that support.
