Experience the joy of helping other during their greatest time of need by becoming an Adopt-A-Wish partner.

Each year hundreds of children are diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions throughout Florida. When a child is diagnosed, their world suddenly collapses. They are robbed of a carefree childhood and are forced to deal with realities that no child should have to undergo. Once filled with school, play, extracurricular  activities and time with friends, their new reality is a constant string of doctor appointments, frightening and sometimes painful tests, surgical procedures and hospital stays.

Imagine the joy, elation and gratitude that these children and families experience when they receive an unconditional wish. This gift is unparalleled and unique to Make-A-Wish®. It is something that no medicine, no doctors and no nurses can provide.

And you can help by becoming an Adopt-A-Wish Partner.


Adopt-A-Wish Benefits

All Adopt-A-Wish donors will receive the following benefits:

  •  The joy of knowing you have helped fulfill the wish and created lasting memories for a child and family during their time of greatest need
  • A wish report and photos of your wish child
  • A commemorative keepsake
  • Recognition for your support on our website

How Can I Make a Difference?

Our vision is a wish for every eligible child in Central and Northern Florida- yet we are only halfway there. Right now, for every child who receives the life-affirming gift of a wish experience, there is another child we are still trying to reach.
