The Adopt-A-Wish® program offers donors the chance to fund a Make-A-Wish® experience for a local child. A member of our staff will help you identify a wish kid based on any number of factors, including geography, medical condition, wish type or age.

The Adopt-A-Wish® program allows to take a more personal approach to donating. When you sponsor a completed wish, Make-A-Wish® Hudson Valley will provide you with the details of that special wish. The average cost of a wish ranges between $7,500 and $10,000.

Students interested in holding a fundraiser to sponsor a wish can check out our Kids for Wish Kids fundraising section for some great ideas.

Everyone involved in fulfilling the wish of a sick child is touched by the magic of the experience…magic that brings hope, strength and joy to children and their families during a difficult time. A wish is something precious to look forward to and can make all the difference to a sick child and their family. 

By adopting a wish you too can be part of the magic. When you, your company, professional club, or student group chooses to adopt a specific child’s wish, you have the opportunity to become connected to the wish experience. Every wish is a unique and memorable experience for the wish child, the wish family and all those who participate in the wish. And many donors say they began their support of the Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley and its endearing mission after hearing a child’s memorable wish story.
