Local & Global Structure

Make-A-Wish® America

Make-A-Wish is one united family. But it’s also a collection of independently chartered nonprofit organizations that stand committed to a shared vision and mission.

The Make-A-Wish national office is based in Phoenix, where the organization was established in 1980. It establishes guidelines for wish-granting standards, raises funds at a national level, provides legal support, develops strategies to advance awareness and establishes the overall direction for the organization.

Chapters throughout the United States serve every community across the nation and its territories. Each has its own board of directors, staff and volunteers. Chapters are the force bringing the Make-A-Wish mission to life. For most wishes, it is local staff members and volunteers who meet wish kids and their families, are told of the child’s one true wish, and devote their energy to make each wish come true.

The Make-A-Wish mission is too inspiring for just one country. Today, Make-A-Wish International, also based in Phoenix, is the hub for wish-granting activities in nearly 50 countries, outside of the United States, on five continents and counting. Affiliates in each country bring the mission to life in communities around the globe.
