Kids For Wish Kids® is an extremely popular program for kids because it is managed by kids!

Kids For Wish Kids is a custom-tailored fundraising program that provides local schools and youth organizations the opportunity to engage in philanthropy and service activities to help grant the wishes of Colorado children with life threatening medical conditions.

This program encourages community service, leadership, volunteerism and teamwork. Kids For Wish Kids provides a hands-on experience for students to help raise funds to grant wishes. This program helps build school spirit and creates partnerships outside of the classroom. It also allows for everyone involved to share the power of a wish®!

As a Kids For Wish Kids volunteer, you will partner with your local Make-A-Wish chapter and coordinate a fundraiser at your school to help sponsor wishes for kids in your community. Check out the Kids For Wish Kids fundraising packet & proposal and if you have any questions please contact Lauren Beede or Ashlee Carey for more information.

Thank you to the 120 schools/groups for participating in the 2013-2014 Kids For Wish Kids® program and helping raise more than $470,000 for Colorado wishes! (This list also includes the five groups that participated in the Wishmakers on Campus program)
