WishKC’s Got One Mission – To Support Make-A-Wish
WishKC, formerly known as Make-A-Wish Kansas City Young Professionals, is a group of community-conscious leaders in Kansas City who are dedicated to supporting Make-A-Wish Missouri, KC’s local Make-A-Wish chapter.
Members of WishKC promote Make-A-Wish Missouri by hosting events aimed at increasing awareness, encouraging volunteerism, and raising funds for the foundation. It is our mission to help Make-A-Wish Missouri continue to grant the wishes of kids with life-threatening illnesses, while encouraging our members to grow as leaders in the community.
Give Back. It’s What We Do.
“I joined WishKC back in 2013 and have loved every aspect of it – from organizing and attending fundraising events to serving on a committee to volunteering as a wish granter. This has, without a doubt, been my favorite way of getting involved and giving back in Kansas City!”
– Colleen R., WishKC Member
However, It’s Not About Us, It’s About The Wish Kiddos
Did you know that in the United States a wish is granted every 35 minutes? It’s because of Make-A-Wish that this is possible. This amazing organization believes that a wish experience can be a game-changer in the lives of the kids facing life-threatening illnesses. They’re not the only ones – families and medical professionals believe this too. Learn more about Kansas City’s local Make-A-Wish chapter.
