Hope Through Wishes

Each Wish is as unique as the child who requests it. Since 1985, a wide variety of Wishes have been granted. Nearly half of approved children want a trip to Disney World, but some unique requests have also been granted. “Hope Through Wishes” is a project that helps to restrict gifts to fund Wishes for Tri-State children who are fighting life-threatening or terminal illnesses.

Granted serves a 100 mile radius of Evansville, Indiana, including Southeast Illinois, Western Kentucky, and Southern Indiana. Click here to see a map of Granted’s service area.

Wishes are granted to children with a life-threatening condition. It is a common misconception that these are a child’s dying Wish. Although this is sadly the case in many instances, it is not at all the norm. Many of our Wish children survive, and even thrive! We have past Wish children who have come back and brought their own children to volunteer.

If you would like to apply for a Wish, download these documents and mail them in to begin the approval process. If you cannot print them out, complete the online form and these papers will be mailed to you.
