The mission at the Make-A-Wish Foundation® is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.
Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Missouri covers all 115 counties in Missouri and 6 Kansas counties that are a part of metro Kansas City. We have headquarters in St. Louis, with program centers in St. Louis, Kansas City, and Springfield.
We are not limited to any one particular condition or group of conditions. We grant wishes to children with heart disease, lung disease, muscular dystrophy, leukemia, cancer, AIDS, etc.
Within our chapter, there are as many as 350 children diagnosed with a life threatening medical condition each year who could qualify for a wish.
We are a volunteer-driven organization with more than 450 volunteers.
Dollars raised by this chapter stay in our community to serve area children with life-threatening medical conditions.
We do not receive funding from the United Way.
We do not raise money through telemarketing nor door to door solicitation.
