Make-A-Wish Australia

Make-A-Wish® Australia grants wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Our wishes give hope, strength and joy when most needed. They have been shown through international research to have a remarkably positive effect on a seriously ill child’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.

With a healing power that goes beyond that of medicine alone, Make-A-Wish wishes are an essential complement to a child’s medical treatment. This unique power reaches families and communities too – bringing them together in hope and celebration. Make-A-Wish is entirely dependent on generous support from members of the community to grant wishes for seriously ill children across Australia. Thanks to our supporters and the tireless efforts of our volunteers, over 8,000 life-changing wishes have been granted in Australia since 1985.

By donating to Make-A-Wish, you are helping to make the wishes of seriously ill children come true. Donations to Make-A-Wish Australia solely benefit children in Australia and all donations $2 and over are tax-deductible.
