Adopt a Wish
The Adopt a Wish program is the opportunity for donors to attach their name to a wish for a $5,000 donation. (Our actual average wish cost is approximately $7,600 - we have many wishes valued at less than $5,000 as well as many over $5,000).
This program, tied to a specific dollar amount, allows a donor to be personally attached to a wish of their choosing. If a donor would like to make a donation over $5,000, that is the actual wish cost/value; the donor would also be classified as a Wish Underwriter. Wish adopters and underwriters may also take advantage of any of the following incentives.*
- Participate as a Wishes & More representative (along with a seasoned volunteer) to:
- Meet & Greet the family at the airport (for “Wish to Go” wishes)
- Deliver the wish components or travel itinerary to the family (for “Wish to Have” or “Wish to Go” wishes)
- Be a part of the wish celebration event / unveiling or ribbon-cutting (for all types of wishes)
- Be a part of notifying the child/family that the board has approved the wish (for all types of wishes)
- Participate in the wish behind the scenes:

- Select and shop for the “more” / enhancement of the wish
- Create a gift basket of goodies to go to the parents (if wish child requires extraordinary care)
- Create a gift basket for celebrities (as a thank you for “Wish to Meet” wishes, after the wish)
- Put together bags or gifts for each sibling
- Write a personalized note to the parents or the wish child
- If the wish is ok to be publicized, you may also have your name included on website, social media, etc.
