Comments (any other information you would like us to include about your organization):
Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1983. This foundation grants special wishes to children under the age of 18 who have terminal illnesses or life-threatening medical conditions. Although most wishes involve things such as special vacations and trips or meeting celebrities assistive technology can be provided if it is the sincere wish of the child. The average cash cost of fulfilling a wish is $3 700 with an additional average $1 500 worth of in-kind contributions donated per wish. To qualify for assistance an individual must have a terminal or life-threatening illness and must be between 2 1/2 and 18 years of age. Local wish teams are brought together to work out the details of each wish. The Foundation has never turned down a wish for a child who is medically eligible.
