Join us—spreading hope one wish at a time

At Indiana Wish, we work so hard to grant wishes because they create hope in the midst of hard. And hope can be a powerful force in the health and healing of these children. Research studies have shown that children who have received wishes have less distress, fewer episodes of depression and reduced anxiety. And all this, in turn, can improve quality of life, foster hope and resilience, and potentially lead to better health outcomes.

When you get involved with Indiana Wish, you become part of the hope and healing we’re working toward—one wish at a time.

Sponsor an event, fundraiser, specific wish, or become a corporate partner.

We count on our community partners to help us make wishes become a reality.

If you would like to host an in-person or virtual event or fundraiser, we would love to partner with you.
