Kids for Wish Kids® is a program designed specifically for elementary and high school students that allows them to help make a difference in the lives of kids with critical illnesses -- sometimes even their very classmates. An info packet with ideas is on the side panel.
Here are a few steps to help get your school involved in a fundraiser for Make-A-Wish®.
- Invite a Make-A-Wish® representative to talk to your school
- Designate one person to be in charge
- Set a goal and chart your progress
- Try to get other grades or your whole school involved
- Start a Kids For Wish Kids® Club!
By starting a club at your school, you are guaranteed to always have people help with fundraisers, have a variety of different people to come up with great ideas, be able to hold semester-long or bigger events more easily and be able to make wishes come true for years to come!

Youth Leadership Council
Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia now offers a Youth Leadership Council, a leadership and development opportunity available in the Greater Pittsburgh area. Members selected for the Youth Leadership Council will learn about philanthropy by volunteering with Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia, the local chapter of the international wish granting organization.
Our goal with the Youth Leadership Council is to encourage youth to give back to children with critical illnesses, right in their community, while making new friends and having fun.
