Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

  • Since 1984, we have granted more than 11,000 wishes to Michigan children. 
  • An estimated 800 Michigan children will be diagnosed with a critical illness this year alone. 
  • An eligible wish child must be referred between the ages of 2½ and 18 and live in Michigan. 
  • Funds donated to Make-A-Wish Michigan stay in Michigan to grant the wishes of local kids. 
  • A Wish Impact Study found that 95 percent of parents said the wish experience improved their family’s well-being. 
  • Our 2023 goal is to grant 475 wishes. More wishes than ever before!
