Participate in our Alumni Program.

A child's journey with Make-A-Wish doesn't end when their wish is granted! After their wish has been delivered, they join a community of over 4,000 wish alumni and families across the state. Through this program, wish alumni can build relationships with other alumni and families, participate in unique experiences and express their gratitude by ensuring the next child receives their wish.

Making wishes come true!

Make-A-Wish Iowa is dedicated to creating life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. The following wishes were granted in our last fiscal year.

“Our family wanted to thank you all so much for helping fulfill Isla's travel trailer wish!!!

Everyone went above and beyond to make the day so special for her. The new bike, the helmet, the barbie camper, and the actual camper. It was all amazing!! And she also did not hardly take the helmet off for the entire rest of the day/night.

For a child that has had to deal with hospitalizations, doctors' appointments, daily treatments, and an insane amount of medications since she was two weeks old, this was such a wonderful thing to have for her and let her know that she is special and deserving of having a wish. A smile was on her face from the moment we woke up and she knew it was her wish day. She could not wait to get to Camping World and get her camper! We do a family campout every year and she has had to stay with Grandma and Grandpa because she needed the hookups and electricity for her equipment. Now we can go on our own as a family when we want and meet up with the whole family!

She can't wait for all the future adventures we can have as a family thanks to all of you. Thank you for making our girl feel so special and taking her mind off of cystic fibrosis for the day. Thank you for the smiles and memories that will last a lifetime. This experience was beyond amazing. Please know how amazing you all are for being a part of it!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
