Intern - Wish Granting

Wishes & More



 

Organization Summary:

 Wishes & More® enhances the life of a child fighting a terminal or life-threatening condition by providing extraordinary experiences... and more...

The purpose of Wishes & More is to serve children between birth and 19 years who are battling terminal and life-threatening conditions which require ongoing treatment.  We not only grant them a wish, we also provide them with a Scholarship of Hope® to be used for higher education. In the event a child does not survive to have a wish fulfilled, we provide the parents with a $1,000 Memorial grant to be used at their discretion.

Wishes & More is a Minnesota based 501(c)3 children’s charity.  We serve children of Minnesota and bordering states and we “fill the gap” for the children and families who may be outside of larger, national organizations. We are made up of seasoned wish granting experts who want to provide a wonderful wish experience to qualified children and their families.
