Make a Wish Foundation

Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories, on average, every 38 minutes. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.

The Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1984. In its first year, a total of 27 wishes were granted. Now one of the largest chapters nationwide, the Foundation has granted 5,000 wishes and grants over 300 wishes per year. While the Foundation follows the policies and guidelines of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America, the Greater Bay Area chapter operates as a separate 501(c)3 organization. All funds raised by the Foundation are used to fulfill our mission in the Bay Area.
