Speaker's Bureau

**Currently this group is not active.

Increase awareness of Make-A-Wish® Alabama and our Volunteer and Fundraising Programs by speaking from your own personal experience at local schools, chamber meetings, and interest groups. Prior Make-A-Wish® volunteer experience is required on top of a vigorous screening, interview and training process.

Special Event

Our chapter is involved in a variety of community events throughout the year that raise money to support wishes. Events include concerts, golf tournaments, walks, runs, and much more! Join our Volunteer E-mail List and you’ll get the flexibility to select which events are of interest to you. Day-of-the-event activities range from live & silent auction support to helping with registration. You must be at least 18 years old.


Help facilitate wish experiences for non-English-speaking families. Translators have the option of becoming fully-trained wish granting volunteers, or they can provide short-term support on an as-needed basis.

Wish Granter

Wish Granters work directly with the children and their families to determine the child’s one true wish and then play an instrumental role in helping to plan, create, and fulfill the child’s wish. These specifically trained volunteers make the wish an unforgettable experience through their attention to detail and imagination. Wish Granters volunteer their time around their own schedule. You must be at least 21 years old.

Wish Granter training webinars are on the 2nd Tuesday of each month and begin at 6:00 p.m. If you would like to take place in a training webinar, please contact Maggie Corcoran, Volunteer Manager, by the Friday before the training. Maggie can be reached at or 205-254-9474 x1942.
