About Us

Every 35 minutes Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.


The Alabama Chapter

Though a part of a national organization, all operations take place at a grassroots level. Funds raised directly support the mission of granting wishes to Alabama children with volunteers across the state working directly with our wish families.
