WISH Campaign

WISH – Wish Champions Inspiring Strength and Hope - is an initiative that brings together dynamic professional and philanthropic men & women who activate their personal networks to support Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina.

It’s all about individuals joining together to inspire strength and hope. As a WISH Champion, you are empowered to directly impact a local child’s one true wish — and in some cases, more than one child. You decide how many wishes you want to grant and set your fundraising goal accordingly. WISH Champions benefit from networking with incredible, like-minded individuals while inspiring others to make a difference in the lives of local children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions.

Last year, we launched simultaneous WISH campaigns in two local markets—Raleigh and Wilmington.  This will provide a platform from which we can continue to raise critical funding and garner public awareness. Our vision is to grant the one true wish of every eligible child.  We believe that number is as high as double the number of children for whom we currently grant wishes.

Our next campaign officially kicks off in October 2016 and culminates with our celebration luncheon in February 2017.  Interested in becoming a WISH Champion or learning more about the campaign? Please contact Nicole Burnette (Raleigh) or Janis Netherland (Wilmington).
