Challenge

Make-A-Wish Oregon serves children ages 2 through 17 living in Oregon and Clark County, Washington, and who are deemed eligible for a wish by their doctor because they suffer from a critical illness. We have a strong commitment to granting a wish for every eligible child; unfortunately, the demand for wishes has outpaced our ability to grant them and we currently have an average of 200 kids awaiting the opportunity for their wish to come true.

Solution

Make-A-Wish Oregon strives to grant a wish to every eligible child in our area. Should our goal of raising $50,000 be achieved, it would greatly reduce the amount of time children are waiting for their wish to be granted.

Long-Term Impact

Wishes are life-changing experiences for children with critical illnesses that often help in their healing process - because when they feel better, they get better. Wishes also benefit the whole community that shares in the wish process or activity that derives hope from a common purpose and enriches lives through the wish process.
