Indiana Children’s Wish Fund
Indiana Children’s Wish Fund is a single-entity statewide wish-granting organization, that grants wishes to Indiana children, ages 3-18, who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening or terminal illness. They are not affiliated with any other wish-granting organizations. Indiana Children’s Wish Fund was founded in August of 1984 and we are entering our 36th year of wish granting. Wish Children are referred to our organization by their doctors, nurses, social workers, parents, etc.
Their most requested wishes are trips to Disney World for the whole family, along with meeting celebrities, shopping sprees and family vacations. Some of their unique wishes have been to meet former Presidents, the Pope, working with Mother Theresa and bringing a Grandmother to the United States from Ethiopia to visit her grandchild. They have even had a wish child who ended up being an extra on the set of a Tom Cruise movie!
The Indy Wish Fund’s mission is to put smiles on the faces of Indiana children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness by making a dream come true. Our children have had to fight battles that children should not have to fight. These children go through treatments that make them sick for days on end. They forget what childhood is all about. Granting their wish gives these brave children something to look forward to and helps build strength and hope for their futures.
