Grant Information


The mission of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Iowa is to grant wishes of children with life- threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. The foundation grants wishes to children under the age of 18 with life-threatening illnesses. Make-A-Wish becomes aware of a child's wish through wish referrals, which are accepted from parents and guardians or medical professionals.

Sample Grants 

121 wishes were provided to eligible children and their families. 49 went to Disney World, 11 met celebrities, 25 did other travel, 6 received computers, and 30 got other things like shopping sprees and toys.
