Although we’d like to believe that the smiles, the laughter, and the hope we bring to a child’s life happen through magic, in reality, granting even just one wish requires thousands of dollars. And in Utah alone, we grant approximately 160 wishes to children every year. We continually depend on the generosity of hundreds of individuals, small businesses, corporations and foundations to help us continue making wishes come true for children like Kelsi, who wanted to meet the princesses at Walt Disney World® Resort, or Cohen, who wished for his very own backyard playset.
Thanks to generous supporters like yourself, no child who qualifies for a wish has ever been turned away. Yet there are so many more children in our state that we would like to reach. Please donate today so that the magic can continue tomorrow.
We make every effort to maximize the impact of your gift by operating an efficient and administratively lean organization. In fact, over 85% of every dollar you contribute to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Utah is used directly to help grant wishes. This percentage far exceeds the standard upheld by organizations monitoring the work of charities.
Bringing wishes to Utah children is possible because of the efforts of our dedicated volunteers. Whether providing administrative support, helping raise funds, organizing family activities, or wish granting, our volunteers make wishes come true! Read more…

Please remember that a donation of any size will bring smiles and comfort to a Utah wish child. Click here to learn more.
Every wish is a unique and memorable experience for the wish child, the wish family and all those who participate in the wish. And many donors say they began their support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation® and its endearing mission after hearing a child’s memorable wish story.
Now you can help create more heartwarming stories for children with life-threatening medical conditions through our Adopt-A-Wish® program. This giving option allows donors to fund a single wish experience in its entirety. Read more…
