2016 Annual Appeal

DONATE NOW

Make today the day that joy triumphs!

Wish requests have recently grown by 20% and hundreds of children like Allisa need your support. Make joy triumph for over 400 seriously ill children in the coming year — that’s more than one wish every day! Please make your gift to Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island to help wish children discover inspiration, courage and joy — for today and for a lifetime.

"Today is the day my wish comes true!" 
When a young child receives a life-threatening diagnosis, the heartbreak and anxiety feel especially insurmountable.  Each day presents new challenges to overcome. On Wish Day, everything changes.

For Allisa, it’s a day spent seaside at Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, enjoying new experiences with loved ones. Having confronted medulloblastoma and chemotherapy, Allisa welcomes the chance to enjoy the beach, observe marine creatures, and simply reclaim childhood. Today is the day…Wish Day…that Allisa feels her strength and optimism grow, inspired by this new beginning.

You can help each and every seriously ill child referred to Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island discover the powerful impact of a wish fulfilled.

Make today the day! Please give generously through our Annual Appeal.

Workplace Giving

Support wishes... right from your office!

You can contribute to Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island through payroll deductions or a one-time gift through your workplace campaign. As a member of America's Charities and Community Health Charities of New England, we are represented in several public and private sector campaigns. Look for the Make-A-Wish code under the America's Charities member listings on your campaign pledge form.

If your workplace offers United Way giving
To direct your United Way pledge to support our children's wishes, look for a "donor option" designation line on your campaign pledge form and write in "Make-A-Wish Foundation of Massachusetts and Rhode Island."

Donate through Community Health Charities of New England
The Foundation is a proud partner of Community Health Charities of New England. If your employer participates in the CHC payroll deduction program, please select Make-A-Wish Foundation of Massachusetts and Rhode Island as one of your charities of choice.

If you are a Federal, State, or City employee
Use the correct code to select Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island as your charity of choice:

#45279: CFC (Combined Federal Campaign)

#700599: COMECC (Commonwealth of Massachusetts Employee Charitable Campaign)

#4026: COBECC (City of Boston Employees Charitable Campaign)

#6251: SECA (Rhode Island State Employees Charitable Appeal)

If your company does not offer workplace giving
You can organize your own campaign! Employees can work together to pool or raise funds. Contact our office for more information about how to get started.

Ask about matching gifts
Even if your company does not offer a formal workplace campaign, many companies do match employee contributions to charity. Ask your human resources department about matching gifts, and you may be able to double (or even triple) the impact of your generosity!
