Make-A-Wish® Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley
Mission and History
Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. Founded in 1980 when a group of caring volunteers helped a young boy fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer, Make-A-Wish is now the largest wish-granting charity in the world, with 62 chapters in the United States and its territories. With the help of generous donors and nearly 25,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish grants a wish every 38 minutes and has granted over 218,000 wishes in the U.S. since inception.
Since 1986, Make-A-Wish® Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley has granted over 4,470 wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18. Our chapter serves the following 10 counties: Bucks, Chester, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Lancaster, Lebanon, Montgomery, Perry and Philadelphia. Make-A-Wish becomes aware of a child’s wish through referrals made by parents and guardians or medical professionals, such as doctors, nurses, social workers, and child-life specialists. Most wishes fall within one of the four categories: "I want to have..." "I want to go..." "I want to be..." "I want to meet..."
Of the Make-A-Wish® Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley’s revenue, 86% is dedicated to our wish-granting efforts. Make-A-Wish is a 501(c)(3) corporation, making contributions tax deductible. For the 7th year in a row, the chapter received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator (www.charitynavigator.org), America’s largest independent evaluator of charities.
