Wishes & More®  is Minnesota's Own, Children's Charity.  We support local families with children fighting life-threatening conditions through three programs: 

                         1.  Granting a heartfelt Wish 

                         2.  Providing  a $2,000 Scholarship of Hope®  that is set aside for future education for wish recipients

                         3. Giving a Memorial gift of $1,000 to the grieving parents of a child who dies without the experience of a wish


MISSION STATEMENT: Wishes & More®  enhances the life of a child fighting a terminal or life-threatening condition by providing extraordinary experiences including wishes, scholarships, memorials and more.

PURPOSE STATEMENT: The purpose of Wishes & More is to grant the wish of a child between birth and nineteen who has a terminal or life-threatening condition which will require ongoing treatment and to provide a Scholarship of Hope® to be used for higher education; or to give a Memorial to the family in the event the child does not survive to have his/her wish fulfilled.

WHO WE ARE: Wishes & More is a Minnesota-based children’s wish granting organization made up of seasoned wish granting experts who want to provide a wonderful wish experience to qualified children and their families, or to grant funds from our other programs. We have a small staff and numerous volunteers who share in our successes and allow us to spend 88 cents of every dollar on the families that need our support! 

COVID-19 IMPACT:   The World-Wide Pandemic has taken it’s toll on many industries, companies, families and individuals – and Wishes & More has not escaped the influence.  Many of our fundraisers have been postponed or cancelled, financial gifts are down and all the while, our kids are still coming to us for support.  COVID-19 isn’t stopping cancer or other diagnoses. COVID-19 hasn’t stopped kids from dying and their parents needing funds from our Memorial Gifts.   COVID-19 WON'T stop Wishes & More from supporting kids who are still getting diagnosed or parents who lose their child. But we need your help!  Please help us by donating and sharing our mission with others in your network who care about kids suffering with life-threatening conditions.  Together we can make sure that local kids have an outlet from their day to day treatments and have a wish and scholarship to look forward to - that allows them to dream big!  Wishes & More is here to stay and we need you to be a part of our team.


What is "More"? 

Expanded Ages

Serving kids up to age 19 who live in Minnesota or are treated in our MN hospitals.  We believe that every child has a wish, even 18-year-olds that are still in high school and newborns who are considered too young by other organizations to have wishes.  We believe babies & toddlers wish to be held, cuddled, kissed and consoled by out-of-town family members.  We fulfill that tiny wish by flying in family from anywhere in the country to be with them for this precious time.

Ability to grant popular Midwest wishes

Our goal is to provide each individual child with their special individual wish.  Many Midwest kids are raised to love hunting, fishing, camping, snowmobiles, four-wheelers and all sorts of recreational equipment and outdoor activities.  Wishes & More completely understands what it’s like to grow up loving the outdoors and frequently grants wishes involving just that.

Scholarship of Hope®

In addition to the wish, we present each “wish kid” with a certificate for a Scholarship of Hope®. This is a promise to them that we believe in their future; so much that when they graduate high school and move onto college, we will be there to support them with a $2,000 scholarship.

Memorials (A financial gift)

We also stand apart by providing a gift of funds to the parents when a child dies without experiencing a wish.  Upon authorized notification, we immediately prepare a check to help them with whatever needs they have whether it be making final arrangements or memorializing their child in some special way.

Even More of the “More”

Our relationship doesn’t end with the wish.  Our wish and memorial families are truly family and we stay with them as long as they choose to be connected – providing unique opportunities to attend sporting events, concerts and other events to help them connect as a family after going through a very trying time.
