How it works

Attending a Gala Ball

Sign up for the event through the event's official website.

Create your fundraising page and remember to personalise it with your story of why you're running!

Share your fundraising page with friends and family, collect donations, and help make wishes come true. Every dollar counts!

Knowing he was given a wish has literally been Jett's reason to not give up. Seeing his smile and feeling his happiness on the day is something I will never forget and treasure forever. If sharing his wish journey reaches only a few new people that may lead to a donation, then that's still one donation closer to someone else's wish and another smile."

Your impact

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

Make-A-Wish currently has over 900 kids on a Wish Journey - with every donation, we are one step closer to making the wish of every eligible Australian child come true.

Attend a Gala Ball and you'll help even more unforgettable wishes come true.
