OUR FINANCIALS

We know it's important to you that your donation is being used effectively. It's important to us, too. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life because we know that a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Thank you to all of our supporters who make wishes come true.​

Delivering results for children in 2023

THANK YOU on behalf of the children and families we support from coast to coast! We are grateful for a growing supporter base and strong reserves to help us grant a growing number of wishes across the country. In 2023 we drew on our reserves to grant more wishes than ever, and our plan is to strategically draw on reserves for the next few years as we continue to build the fundraising capacity to grant 2,500 wishes annually.
