Since 2014, WishKC has been the Make-A-Wish® Foundation's influence in Kansas City, particularly for young professionals. WishKC is a group of volunteer young professionals committed to the mission of Make-A-Wish® in Kansas City and to also providing professional development, leadership and networking opportunities to its young professional members and volunteers throughout Kansas City. Since WishKC began in 2014, it has raised over $25,000, towards granting life-changing wishes for local children battling critical illnesses. WishKC has also engaged countless young professionals and provided a platform for them to grow.
Currently, WishKC's Governing Board is comprised of lawyers, nurses, insurance brokers, IT professionals, marketing specialists and other professionals. With the help of volunteers and donors throughout the Kansas City Metropolitan Area, we have raised over $14,000, for FY 2017-2018 and held countless events to both raise awareness and provide magical experiences for Wish Kids throughout Kansas City. The events WishKC hosts range from fundraisers to parties that celebrate the courage of our Wish Kids and their families.
