You have the ability to make a difference in the lives of children in Southern Florida who are battling critical illnesses. Through the generosity of our supporters, we have never turned away a medically-eligible child. In order to continue to ensure that each and every child is granted their wish, we need your help.
By adopting a child’s wish, you will be a part of the magic of Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida and receive the story of the wish you made possible, photos (if available) and recognition on our web site. Most important, of course, is the satisfaction of knowing that YOU have made a difference in a child’s life by making his or her wish come true!
Wishes are like children - each one unique. Therefore, the cost to fund a wish varies widely depending on the nature of the wish and the geographic location of the child. The average cost in Southern Florida varies by region (Tampa Bay and Suncoast regions - $8,000, Southwest Florida - $6,000, and Southeast Florida - $5,000). You can give a child the priceless gifts of love, laughter and treasured memories by sponsoring his or her wish. For a contribution of half the cost of a wish your donation will be partnered with another donor to make a child’s wish come true.
Fulfilling our mission of granting wishes to children with critical illnesses would not be possible without the generous financial support of donors in the community.
Behind every child’s wish, there are special individuals, corporations, student organizations or foundations that made it possible. In fact, every unforgettable wish we grant is funded by private contributions. When you Adopt-A-Wish, you impact a family and create hope, strength and joy during a time when a family needs it most.
