Become a Volunteer

  • Wish Granters, Michelle and Collin, play games with their wish child, Azalee!

Our volunteers play an important role in all phases of the wish granting process: from working in child-focused wish-granting teams; to solicitation of goods and services that meet the needs of specific wishes; to assisting at special events & fundraisers! It is thanks to the generosity of our volunteers that we are able to fulfill many wonderful wishes.

We depend on people like you! 

To get started today, attend a New Volunteer Training & Orientation in your area. 

  • What to bring with you:  Print, complete, and bring your new volunteer paperwork and 2 donated gift cards* ($25 minimum value for each) with you to the training you attend.
  • *These items are to be used as “warm-up gifts” for the Wish interviews or for our auctions to raise money for granting wishes! You will have a jump start on the application process if you can bring your 2 items along with your paperwork to the orientation. Upon request we can send a letter that you may use as a tool if you feel comfortable visiting stores, speaking to a manager, and asking for a donation to Make-A-Wish - that way you don't actually have to purchase the two $25 gift cards yourself. Some new volunteers will just go ahead and buy two gift cards to any store and be done with it. It's completely up to you!

Volunteer Application and Paperwork:
*please download and complete the forms below; all paperwork must be filled out entirely

*existing volunteers will download and sign a Conflict of Interest annually

Background Check: After attending a new volunteer training and turning in all relevant paperwork, we will send you the link to complete your background check for our Chapter, estimated cost $24.99 (see: Why do I need a Background Check?)


Every time we grant wishes, it makes my heart smile! ”
