About Our Organization

For more than 35 years, Make-A-Wish has been granting life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. The inspiration came from a little boy who dreamt of being a police officer. The Arizona Department of Public Safety granted his wish with a custom-made uniform, helmet and badge, and even a helicopter ride. Since 1985, the Central New York Chapter - which serves 15 counties - has granted more than 1,800 wishes.

Those wishes to be, to have, to go, and to meet have run the gamut, including a wish to be a dolphin trainer, to go to Walt Disney World, to hava a swimming pool, and a wish to have a custom-made tree house, as well as many, many more!

Your support helps us to keep saying YES to every eligible child!
