Make-A-Wish New Hampshire

2019 Goals:

Make-A-Wish® New Hampshire’s vision is to grant a wish for every eligible child facing a critical illness within our state. Our goal is to grant each child’s heartfelt wish creating a transformational experience for them one child at a time. It is our desire to bring 90 wishes to life this year acquiring the resources needed through fundraising, in-kind resources and volunteer engagement. We hope to continue to build our relationships with the medical community and community at large to give them a better understanding of our mission and the vital role it plays in a child’s journey through illness.

Fundraising Events:

Make-A-Wish® New Hampshire hosts two signature campaigns annually:
Breakfast for Wishes, held each spring in Manchester, showcasing our mission and Rafting for Wishes, held each summer in Meredith Bay. Make-A-Wish® is fortunate to have many companies, clubs, organizations and individuals throughout New Hampshire who host a variety of events – giving us the opportunity to share our mission and raise the vital dollars we need to fulfill our vision. Please check our website at for a listing of opportunities to engage and thank these wonderful event hosts. A special thanks to Make-A-Wish® New Hampshire’s largest corporate donors, the New Hampshire Credit Unions, Landmark Benefits and Wildcat Mountain for their ongoing support of New Hampshire Wish Kids!
