Although we’d like to believe that the smiles, the laughter, and the hope we bring to a child’s life happen through magic, in reality, granting even just one wish requires thousands of dollars. And in New Jersey alone, we grant more than 450 wishes to children every year. We continually depend on the generosity of hundreds of individuals, small businesses, corporations and foundations to help us continue making wishes come true.
By donating to the Make-A-Wish Foundation you will help assure that no child’s wish goes unfulfilled. And we make every effort to maximize the impact of your gift by operating an efficient and administratively lean organization. In fact, over 80% of every dollar you contribute to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey is used directly to help grant wishes. This percentage far exceeds the standard upheld by organizations monitoring the work of charities.
Thanks to generous supporters like yourself, no child who qualifies for a wish has ever been turned away. Yet there are so many more children in the State of New Jersey that we would like to reach. Please donate today so that the magic can continue tomorrow.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey is able to share the power of a wish® thanks to the support of generous donors. We welcome all levels of donation, whether it’s a one-time gift, a monthly donation or the establishment of a matching gifts program.
Volunteering is a great way to help. We invite you to share the power of a wish® whether you can give a few hours each month or a few days each year.
When it comes to raising funds, the only limit is your imagination. People throughout the state have hosted events as simple as a bake sale to an elaborate dinner dance. You can help share the power of a wish® by organizing your own event to benefit wish kids in New Jersey.
