Make-A-Wish Foundation Of Southern Nevada

OUR MISSION


Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We seek to bring every eligible child’s wish to life because every child deserves a childhood. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength needed to fight a critical illness. This can help improve their quality of life and produce better health outcomes.


OUR VISION


To grant the wish of every eligible child. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life — a goal that is born from the idea that a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment. Though we have temporarily paused wish-granting that involves travel and gatherings due to COVID-19, we continue to grant every wish that we safely can. We are committed to ensuring that no child waits even one unnecessary day to experience the hope and joy that a wish brings.
