Working with us

Employment Opportunities

Working for the Make-A-Wish Foundation makes a difference in every wish child's life. From fundraising to wish granting ... every aspect is important to make the best wishes come true.

We currently do not have any job opportunities.

When we have any available job openings within our chapter, we usually pull from our volunteers and interns for opportunities. A great way to gain access to this is either to come intern with us or become a volunteer. Not only do you see how wishes come true from start to finish, but you will also make a difference in each wish child's life. We always say lives are measured in memories and not years.

Interning with us

We are always in need of extra help. From raising funds to making wishes come true, the opportunities we have available are endless.

In our Development department, interns could support the coordination and implementation of programs/campaigns/promotions set by national corporate partners.  They would also have the opportunity to help assist with external events, event planning, along with meeting with corporations in order to cultivate new donor relations. In addition to this, they could help manage and organize quarterly meetings and new volunteer trainings. Interns could also get involved in individual donor/prospect research, donor cultivation events, updating donor information and making thank you calls to donors.

In coordination with our development department interns could assist the Wish Coordinator in making arrangements with the wish family and the wish granting volunteers.  This will include helping make travel arrangements, writing thank you letters, proof-reading itineraries and other materials and getting items donated for the wish.

Interning at Make-A-Wish has truly been one of the most rewarding experiences. Not only did I learn and utilize useful skills to further me in my career, but also gained a sense of fulfillment. The environment is a very positive place to learn and grow. My supervisors were the best to work with! Overall, I had the most amazing experience as an intern and will take everything I learned to bring success in the future. ”
