Wishes can’t come true without people who care. Some volunteer, some donate, some allow wish kids to take part in their busy lives. But every way they contribute allows us to share the power of a wish®. Behind every child’s wish, there exists a special individual, corporation, student organization or foundation that makes it possible.
In fact, every unforgettable wish we grant is funded by private contributions. The average value of a wish is $6,500, however, any gift, large or small, will impact a family and create hope, strength and joy during a time when a family in our community needs it most. A number of fundraising programs are available to donors. If you or your company, organization or school wants to become involved in one or more of these programs, please contact our office at 864-250-0702.
Many local individuals and corporations recognize the importance of the communities in which they work and live and encourage employee involvement with various area programs. This offers many opportunities for employees to make a positive and personal impact right in their own backyard.
By sponsoring the wish experience through the Make-A-Wish Foundation® you have the opportunity to connect to a local child’s wish. Sponsoring a child’s wish creates a deep emotional response knowing your contribution is making a positive and immediate impact on the life of a Make-A-Wish® child.
We sincerely appreciate your continued support of our mission, and invite you to get to know some of our current supporters and sponsors!
