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

This school year, thousands of students, schools and youth groups across Colorado became wish makers through the Make-A-Wish® Colorado Kids For Wish Kids program. They learned the importance of teamwork and community service, and they raised funds to help grant wishes for children fighting critical illnesses.

Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give kids with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. Your support will bring Make-A-Wish Colorado one step closer to the goal of fulfilling the wish of every eligible child.

Kids For Wish Kids puts kids in charge. They take the lead to brainstorm fundraising ideas, create action plans and manage everything from start to finish. Your students can even combine their efforts with existing school events, like spirit week or field day. 

As a Kids For Wish Kids supporter, 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. 


To help, we have lots of great resources to share, including our online resource toolkit (bit.ly/wishweekco), samples from other schools, and more! If you have any questions please contact Sarah Grosh for more information. 

Thanks to this year's sponsor, Raising Canes!
