About Us

As the founding chapter of the now international wish granting organization, Make-A-Wish® Arizona continues to be a trailblazer, granting 330 wishes in fiscal year 2014, a record in Arizona. We have dedicated ourselves to the Make-A-Wish mission, granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

The Make-A-Wish® Story
