Fundraise at school

Kids love helping other kids – and they definitely love wishes – which makes fundraising with Make-A-Wish a great fit for your school.

Your impact

Every year, thousands of Australian children are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness like cystic fibrosis, a heart condition, or cancer.

This year, Make-A-Wish will support more than 800 kids on a Wish Journey, helping them discover that anything is possible.

Together with your help, we can make even more unforgettable wishes come true.
