Make-A-Wish Arizona grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. Make-A-Wish Arizona believes that the fulfillment of a wish creates a magical moment for children, families, and everyone involved in a wish. Therefore, it is the chapter's vision that people everywhere will share the power of a wish.
In our 2014 fiscal year, we were able to grant 330 wishes for Arizona wish kids. We still have approximately 300 wish kids waiting for volunteers and funds to help make their one true wish come true.

Reviews for Make-A-Wish Arizona
I am currently working on 5 Wishes and love the support I get from Make-A-Wish! It is such an awesome organization and I am proud to be a volunteer for them. Seeing the look on the Wish Kids face when they find out their true wish has been granted is priceless. If you are looking for a very rewarding volunteer experience I would highly recommend Make-A-Wish!
Volunteering as a wish Granter has changed my life. The families I meet are inspiring, and Make-A-Wish Arizona does a wonderful job of pulling together all of the elements needed to fulfill children's wishes. As a former staff member, I know that every decision made is focused on doing what's best for the kids. When you support Make-A-Wish, you're doing something good for sick kids and their families NOW that will have a lasting impact, and might even help them gain the strength and courage to conquer their life-threatening medical condition. It's an incredible thing to be part of.
As a wish granter with Make A Wish there is nothing better than seeing the look on a kids face when I get to tell them their wish is coming true. I have been fortunate enough to stay in contact with my wish families and there is always something new they tell me about their wish every time I see them. It is an honor to be a part of such a wonderful organization
As a mother to a wish kid, I can say that the wish experience changed our lives for the better. From the trip itself -it was magical, A once in a lifetime experience that cannot ever be duplicated to the wish granters that still brighten my days when I see their names appear on my phone or computer. Words cannot adequately describe what a blessing it was, from paradise to friendships, we're forever grateful to Make-A-Wish Arizona.
Being a wish granter is one of the best decisions I've ever made. The joy I get from making the one true wish of a kiddo come true is insurmountable. I've seen the power of a wish, time and time again! My first wish kid just started her first year of college, and years later, we still speak about the positive impact her wish had on not only her, but her entire tribe of supporters.
I couldn't be more proud or grateful for the opportunity to serve on the Make a Wish Arizona Board. It is the most amazing group of people that have been assembled to make a difference in the lives of children with life threatening medical illness. The Staff of Make a Wish Arizona are the best in the business. From CEO Elizabeth Reich to every position both paid and volunteer, this is an organization firmly planted in the cause. Our whole family embraced the mission and got involved, including our daughters who started Kids for Wish kids club at their High School. It is humbling to know that we are apart of granting the one true wish of a child truly in need of a wish. To hear the stories from the families and the impact it has had on their lives is a gift that can never be repaid!
It's more than the "wish" it's the feeling of happiness and excitement that Make -A- Wish makes possible for children that have had to face the unknown, the pain, the sadness that a life threatening illness presents. Make- A- Wish gave my son something to look forward to and the excitement of his "hearts desire" to become a reality. Finally , something magical was going to happen not only for him but for his mom and dad who could only be consumed with his care, The kids are so excited but it is a very emotional process for the families whose heart breaks for their child. The anticipation of a Make- A- Wish come true, just what we needed and what my son deserved. Thank you Make-A-Wish and all who support you.
I am a Wish Granter for Make-A-Wish and love every second of it. It really is a magical experience to grant a child's one true wish and see how much joy and happiness it brings to them. The staff at Make- A -Wish is very caring and work extremely hard to make wishes come true. Being a volunteer has been wonderful!
I am a wish Grantor at Make A Wish Arizona. I realize that we as volunteers are there for kids, but these kids teach us so much in return. I ask anyone that has any time to pkease donate. It will amaze you and fill your life with something you never could have imagined.
I have been a wish granter with Make a Wish for almost 10 years. I have never found an organization more in touch with the families of children with life threatening illness. I am proud to say I am associated with this Non Profit and continue to do everything to promote them as one I support wholeheartedly. I have seen first hand the results of what their mission does for these children and their families.
