Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
To grant the wish of every eligible child.
Child Focus: We always put wish children first.
Integrity: We are honest, transparent and respectful.
Impact: We deliver life-changing work.
Innovation: We are bold, imaginative and creative.
Community: We are a diverse group of people working together towards a common goal.
We as the Make-A-Wish Foundation® grant the wishes of children with life-threatening deceases between the age of 3 to 18. The wishes are – like the children – very different. Be a pilot and steer an aeroplane, go on a holiday trip with the family, meet a star or just a laptop or smartphone, to stay in touch with friends during the long hours in hospital.
However a wish might look like – the share one thing: When they are granted, children grasp new hope and can forget their worries and sickness for a while.
Since the Make-A-Wish Foundation® Austria was founded we were able to grant more than 1.500 wishes.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation exists in more than 50 countries and has granted over 500.000 wishes since 1980.
The umbrella organization is Make-A-Wish International with their head office in Amsterdam.
