Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Our mission reflects the life-changing impact that a wish has on children, families, referral sources, donors, and the greater community.
Since 1983, Make-A-Wish New Jersey has brought hope, strength and joy to more than 7,400 seriously-ill children throughout all 21 counties in every city, town, and municipality in the Garden State.
Wishes are granted to medically eligible children between the ages of 2 ½ and 18 years old. A wish is the child’s answer to the question, “If you could have one wish, what would it be?” Learn more about how children answer that magical question and about how wishes are granted.
