Fulfilling wishes for children of Alaska, Montana, Northern Idaho and Washington is possible because of the efforts of our dedicated volunteers. Whether providing administrative support, wishgranting or helping out at a special event, our volunteers do whatever it takes to make wishes come true! Although it requires a big commitment, Make-A-Wish volunteers say there’s nothing more rewarding than helping make a child’s most cherished dream become reality. For information about volunteer opportunities, please contact:

To follow are the three types of volunteer opportunities available. You may chose to volunteer in one or more areas, based upon your time available and interests.
Wishgranters work in teams of two and work directly with children to ascertain and plan wishes, and work creatively to seek in-kind goods and services to implement the wish. The nature of each child's wish determines the level of the wishgranter's involvement. Wishgranters must be at least 21 years old.
Administrative volunteers play a vital role in the daily operations of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. All administrative volunteers work during regular MAW business hours (Monday- Friday, 9am - 5pm). Responsibilities vary widely and may include: computer work, mailings, and office projects. Generally, these volunteers work a specific shift weekly.
Special Event Volunteers:
Our special event and fund raising volunteers help with specific events or promotions, including Radiothons, 5K Runs, Golf Tournaments, and Holiday Gift Wrapping.
