A Wish Come True grants wishes and provides resources to families with a child age 3-18 who is struggling with a life threatening illness, living in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.


  • Founded in 1982, we are the oldest wish-granting organization in Rhode Island.


  • We granted 12 wishes in our 1st year and we are now averaging 3 wishes per month. We have completed more than 1,600 wishes over the past 37 years. 


  • The average cost per wish is between $5,000 to $7,000 depending on the wish, size of the family and if any special medical needs are required. 


  • Contributions are tax deductible as we are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as tax exempt under code 501(c)(3).


  • Contributions can be made through the United Way in Rhode Island and Massachusetts as well as through the Combined Federal Campaign.
