501st Legion

Start a Fundraiser

The 501st Legion is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to bringing beloved Star Wars characters to life. Founded in 1997, the 501st Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars fandom, through the building and wearing of quality costumes. The group facilitates the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events, as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work.

For over ten years, the 501st Legion has raised thousands for varied Make-A-Wish chapters, all over the globe. The 501st Legion Make-A-Wish Endowment Fund allows the organization, with over 9,500 members in over 60 countries, the band together for an even greater global impact. The endowment fund will rely on contributions from its corporate sponsors, major sports organizations, its membership, as well as the public.

This endowment, the first of its kind, allows Make-A-Wish™ America and Make-A-Wish International to grant more Star Wars-related wishes to children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions.

Our goal is to raise $150,000 by September of 2021.Once the minimum gift is achieve, the Endowment Fund will grant wishes from the interest accrued; as the fund continues to grow, so will the number of wishes granted by the endowment.

The 501st Legion thanks you for your support in helping us reach this goal and fulfilling the wishes of children around the world. May The Force™ Be With You!
