Since 1997, Kids Wish Network has been making dreams come true for hundreds of thousands of children all over the world. We started out with the single purpose of granting wishes to children suffering with life-threatening conditions. Since then, we created a unique range of programs designed to bring hope and joy to children facing life-altering circumstances who demonstrated needs above and beyond the extent of wishes.

  • Wish Granting

    We grant wishes to kids between ages 3 and 18 who are battling life-threatening conditions. Our Wish Kids can request just about anything for their wish, such as trips to theme parks, celebrity meet and greets, travel, or shopping sprees.

  • Hero of the Month

    We present a special Hero of the Month award to children in the care of hospitals, homeless shelters, abuse shelters and other facilities. These heroes have faced and overcome life-altering circumstances with tremendous courage.

  • Kids Wish Network On Tour

    This program was designed to help at-risk children nationwide who face abuse, poverty, neglect, homelessness, and other forms of adversity. Our goal is to bring “miles of smiles” to these children through gifts of toys, clothes, necessities and other items.

  • Holiday of Hope Gift Banks

    This program brings laughter and smiles to the faces of children in the care of hospitals, shelters and other pediatric care facilities through shipments of toys, games and other items. These “Gift Banks” offer care-givers the opportunity to distract the children from often distressing situations.

  • Funeral Assistance

    Our Funeral Assistance program makes funds available to a wish family in the event of their child’s passing. In their times of need, Kids Wish Network is committed to helping our wish families honor their child in a respectful and dignified manner by ensuring a proper end of life ceremony.

48,632 kids helped this last fiscal year through our many programs and services.
