Our Values

Our values serve as the map to attain our vision of granting the wish of every eligible child. They are a clear guide to our priorities and lead the way in everything we do.


We approach every aspect of our work with unwavering standards of honesty, transparency and respect for wish recipients, their families and Make-A-Wish® supporters.

Child Focus

Our business practices always put the interests of wish children first. Always.


We aspire to best-in-class business practices, and we embrace the challenge to exceed expectations at every opportunity.


We foster a collaborative, global community composed of staff, volunteers and donors with the collective ability to make the broadest possible range of wishes come true.


We are inspired by the examples of our wish kids and the actions of the entire Make-A-Wish community to approach our mission with life-affirming enthusiasm, imagination and creativity. As a result, we fill each wish experience and every interaction with hope, strength and joy.
