Since the Make-A-Wish Foundation® was founded - the business community has been a strong supporter of the Make-A-Wish® mission. Through corporate grants, event sponsorships, donations and in-kind services the business community enables us to continue our mission of granting wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions in the 37 counties we serve. By offering corporations a variety of ways to help, the Foundation believes that a partnership is possible with any business or corporation.
Corporate or Workplace Giving enables employees of a company or business to join together and design a fund raising event or an ongoing workplace campaign that fits the needs of their particular work environment. We are constantly amazed and delighted at the variety of ways in which employees raise money. Staff support from the Make-A-Wish Foundation is always available, and this site is full of ideas, one of which might be right for your company.

The program allows customers, colleagues, friends and family to purchase cut-out stars (with the Make-A-Wish logo) or magnetic stars from your business for a donation. You then post the stars on a wall/ window for all to see. Visit the Star Program Page for more information.
