Locally, Make-A-Wish® grants approximately 260 wishes to local children each year. That's a wish every business day!
In 2009, with the help of the communities it serves, Make-A-Wish® opened The Wishing Place, a child-friendly and inviting place where children with life-threatening medical conditions are encouraged to dream big and wishes come true.
Make-A-Wish® Northeastern California and Northern Nevada is a charitable nonprofit organization whose purpose is to grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Founded in 1983, Make-A-Wish Northeastern California & Northern Nevada has granted over 5,000 wishes since our inception. While the organization follows the policies and guidelines of Make-A-Wish® America, it operates as a separate 501(c)(3) organization. All funds raised by our chapter are used to fulfill our mission in the 37 Northeastern California and Northern Nevada counties we serve (see map for details).
