This Year's Project: Wishes


About Our Organization

Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Make-A-Wish Nebraska grants the wishes of children across Nebraska who are between the ages of 2 ½ and 18 and diagnosed with a critical illness.



Current Project: Wishes




Make-A-Wish has the unique ability to transform a child's life during some of their most difficult times, as a wish creates an opportunity for hope and the ability to experience life beyond their illness. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope. Wishes help kids look past the limitations of their illness. Most importantly, wishes can improve a child's quality of life, giving them a better chance of recovering.

Wishes usually fall into one of four categories: I wish go, I wish to be, I wish to have, and I wish to meet.

In an effort to alleviate any possible stress on the family, Make-A-Wish covers all expenses related to making the wish come true. On average, a wish costs between $7,500 and $10,000. We are proud to share that 82% of every dollar raised goes toward our wish-granting program, helping grant the wishes of children across Nebraska.

HOW WE USE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS:

• $50 helps purchase decorations for a wish reveal

• $100 helps purchase sandbox toys for a play structure

• $250 helps cover the cost of limo rides

• $500 helps cover the cost of a send-off party for a wish kid and his/her family

• $1,000 helps fund a “wish to be/meet” wish
