Donate Airline Miles

Rocco with Andrew McCutchen

Did you know...that travel is Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia's biggest wish expense? In fact, our local chapter needs more than 124 million air miles per year to fulfill travel wishes. 

Support Our Wishes in Flight® Program

Nationally, Make-A-Wish® would need more than 2.5 billion miles, or 50,000 round-trip tickets, to cover every travel wish each year.

Every mile donated helps wish kids and their families travel to destinations around the world. Once donated, your miles will never expire and are used to support wishes across the country. This is just one simple way you can help grant a life-changing wish experience.

Do you have frequent flier miles to help make wishes come true?

Notice: Continental OnePass miles now accepted under the United Mileage Plus program.

Tax Deductibility

The IRS recognizes award points and miles as a gift or an award from the corporation to the individual. Therefore, points and frequent flier miles donated to charity are not considered tax deductible.

JetBlue TrueBlue Rewards

JetBlue's reward program, TrueBlue, allows members to turn reward points into dollars and donate to their charity of choice, including Make-A-Wish. To learn more, visit the True Giving website. Click here to sign in to your TrueBlue account and donate points.

Other Mileage Programs

Currently, Make-A-Wish does not have formal relationships with airlines not listed above; however, Make-A-Wish chapters can use transferable airline vouchers or tickets on a case-by-case basis. To find out more about airline voucher or ticket donations, contact the National Office or your local chapter.

Please note: As of Jan. 31, 2009, American Airlines AAdvantage® members will no longer be able to donate their unused miles to Make-A-Wish. If you have questions about the AAdvantage program, please contact AAdvantage at (800) 882-8880.
