About Make-A-Wish® Illinois
Since 1985, Make-A-Wish Illinois has granted more than 13,000 wishes to children across Illinois. We continue to reach out to ensure that all eligible children have the opportunity to experience a life-changing wish experience. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic,more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical conditions. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses. For more information about Make-A-Wish Illinois, visit
