Make-A-Wish Hawaii grants life-changing wishes to children in Hawaii with critical illnesses. Many of our wish kids overcome their illnesses and lead long, healthy lives. Though they are part of the world’s largest wish-granting organization, they operate locally as an independent 501(c)3. Monies raised in our state stay in our state.

They are headquartered in Honolulu with a staff of 30, and they rely on more than 700 statewide volunteers to make wishes possible. Unlike most nonprofits, they are 100% privately funded, which means wishes are entirely backed by our community.

Make-A-Wish Hawaii are among the busiest chapters in the nation with the unique privilege of sharing our beautiful islands with more than 1,200 families on wishes to visit Hawaii each year. They engage more than 200 local businesses and community partners to fulfill these incoming travel wishes.
