Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Children's Wish Endowment is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit charity that grants the wishes of LOCAL children who are experiencing chronic, life threatening or terminal illnesses in a quest to bring joy, happiness and hope! Children's Wish Endowment consists of an all volunteer board with one part time employee, our Executive Administrative Assistant. We are not affiliated with any national wish granting organizations and receive no funding from them.

We are committed to forming relationships with "our" wish kids during events throughout the year. We host Halloween and Christmas parties to provide special memories to cherish with their families. "Santa" makes a special visit bringing toys for our wish child and siblings. We enjoy celebrating milestones such as birthdays with a card and "treat" , as well as showing our support during hospital stays until they are 18 years old. We believe that Children's Wish changes the lives of the kids we serve. The children and their families gain new friends and a "community" to support them in their fight.

We have several fundraiser yearly to get support and donations throughout the community.

We currently get as many much donated from sponsorships, monetary donations, food items, etc to make our expenses at a minimal so the money raised goes toward Children's Wishes!

We currently have 57 families that we have granted wishes for in our local area and are continually looking for children with chronic, life threatening or terminal illnesses to serve.
