"We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.”



For 30 years Make-A-Wish Mississippi has been granting wishes to children in Mississippi with life-threatening medical conditions. Approximately 2,000 wishes have been granted during the past thirty years; those wishes include countless plane tickets, hotel rooms, and memories to last a lifetime for the some 2,000 wish kids and their families. This would not have been possible if not for our generous donors, volunteers, community organizations, wish kids and wish families!

For Make-A-Wish Mississippi, this milestone marks a starting point. As we gaze into the next thirty years of Make-A-Wish, our vision is to reach every eligible child and grant their most heartfelt wish. Our goals are to increase the awareness of Make-A-Wish, provide more unique and engaging fundraising opportunities, and also celebrate and thank those who have helped us get to where we are today.

Your Mississippi Chapter currently grants approximately 100 wishes per year. With the your helping and the building of our Mississippi communities, Make-A-Wish will be able to reach more families and impact additional lives right here in our backyard.

As an organization, we would be thrilled to have you as part of our team. Without kind and generous people like you, the Make-A-Wish mission would not be possible. Thank you for your interest in Make-A-Wish. We can’t wait to grow with you through the Trailblaze journey.
