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.

This campaign, held in Raleigh and Wilmington, provides a platform which we can continue to raise critical funding and garner public awareness across our region.  In 2017, our WISH Champions raised more than $270,000 that led to the granting of 36 wishes.

Ready to make a difference?  WISH Champions for the 2018 WISH campaign are now being accepted.  If interested in being a part of our next class of WISH Champions, please contact Kristen Johnson in Raleigh or Janis Netherland in Wilmington for more information.
