What is a Wish Granter?
Wish Granters, working in teams of two or three, attend to the details of granting a wish. They work directly with children to ascertain and plan wishes, and work creatively to seek in-kind goods and services to implement the wish. The nature of each child's wish determines the level of the Wish Granter's involvement. Wish Granters are asked to attend a mandatory training, work on up to three wishes per year, and if the situation requires, travel up to two hours for the wish visit.
Do Wish Granters travel with the family/child?
No, there are 61 other Make-A-Wish chapters around the country and many international affiliates. When we send a wish family to another state or country, that chapter will help facilitate the wish.
