A Message from Jennifer and Chris

We are very pleased to share that in a milestone moment, Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Canada are joining forces with the goal of granting the wish of every eligible child across the country.

As one organization, our mission will be to provide children with life-threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish, giving them the strength to endure their treatments and build resilience.

Together, we will leverage our collective best practices, relationships and strengths, to improve our ability to fundraise, attract and retain the best talent, and ultimately, bring us closer to our goal of granting the wish of every eligible child in Canada.

We know this is a big step, and we are confident that it is the right one – for the children we serve, for our valued donors, for our employees and volunteers, and for our future.

United as Make-A-Wish® Canada, we’ll be able to make an even greater difference in the communities we support, increasing our ability to grant wishes by 25 per cent more each year.

This transformative union is the responsible move as we look to the future and broaden our scope to sustain our reach and help more children. It is the result of extensive, collaborative and thoughtful planning involving expert advisors and leadership from both organizations.

Thank you in advance for being part of this journey.
