Through the Adopt-A-Wish Program, you have the power to grant a life-changing wish!

Each year, hundreds of children within our community are diagnosed with critical illnesses. When a child is diagnosed, their world suddenly collapses. They are robbed of a carefree childhood and are forced to face realities that no child should have to endure.

So imagine the joy and gratitude that these children and their families experience when they receive an unconditional wish. This gift is unparalleled and unique to Make-A-Wish®, and you can help by participating in our Adopt-A-Wish® program!

Your gift goes directly to funding the cost of a wish for a deserving child and family within our community. The Adopt-A-Wish Program allows you, your family, or your company to select a child from your area to engage with and witness firsthand the impact of your generosity!

Feel the Make-A-Wish mission by adopting a wish!

There's simply no better way to feel the magic of Make-A-Wish then to Adopt-A-Wish. Not only will you have granted a wish to a local child, but you will be able to be a part of the magic. 

  • The folks at P2O Hot Pilates & Fitness helped make Bryant the Ninja's day a memorable one!

  • Joanne (right) not only adopted Tina's wish to have a French Bulldog puppy, but got right down on her level when Tina first met her new BFF!

  • London's wish to be a Ghostbuster also included his Adopt-A-Wish sponsors, the Hurst Family!

  • Owner of Raley's Family of Fine Stores Julie and Michael Teel made sure that Maddie's wish to go to college debt free came true!

  • The Sacramento Kings Community Fund through wish kid Shaambak a welcome back party and got to hear all about his wish!

  • The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office turned steps into wishes by raising money during our annual Walk for Wishes, then granted Omar's wish to go fast with lights and sirens!

  • Teagan was surprised by Interstate Oil Company at their annual Swing for the Wish event!

  • Taylor Morrison of California, Sacramento Division made wish kid Cade feel super special when he had his wish to go to Denmark granted!

Sometimes it is overwhelming when I think that our son’s magical experience was due to the kindness of strangers. I know now he fights harder knowing that people out there are caring for his well-being. Thank you for giving. ”
