How Businesses Can Help

Become An "Adopt-A-Wish®" Sponsor

To "adopt a wish", a donor or group must raise or contribute a tax-deductible gift of at least $7,000 in cash or securities within one year. Wishmakers are recognized by having a wish granted in their honor, and will receive a plaque with a photo and description of the child's wish they sponsored. More information on becoming an Adopt-A-Wish® sponsor...

Team up for "Walk For Wishes®"

Make-A-Wish® Maine hosts Walks For Wishes® at several locations throughout the state in May and September. Individuals, businesses, or other groups who raise at least $7,000 - the average cost of a wish - are recognized as "Adopt-A-Wish®" sponsors for having funded a child's wish.

Form a business team or teams to accept the special challenge of adopting a wish through our Walk For Wishes. As an Adopt-A-Wish sponsor, your business will be recognized by having a child's wish granted in your honor. Your business will receive a plaque with the child's photo and details of the wish experience.
