On average, Wishing Star grants 40 wishes each year. Every week in our service area, another child is being diagnosed with a life-threatening condition.
In June , a Circle of Friends Monthly Giving campaign was created to increase our outreach so that every child is being found and served. Over the past 33 years, over 1, wishes have been granted. Wishes are unique and different to every child. Some examples of more common wishes include Disneyworld, therapy rooms, van lifts, and swimming with dolphins.
Wishing Star funds wishes through fundraisers, individual and business contributions, and planned giving.
Eighty-six percent of every dollar donated to Wishing Star goes directly to granting wishes. A feeling that one would like to have or do something or to see something happen; a desire, longing, or strong inclination for a specific thing.
