For 37 years, "A Wish Come True, Inc." has been granting wishes to children age 3 through 18 who suffer from life threatening illnesses, and live in Rhode Island and parts of southeastern Massachusetts. It has been quite a journey, and the lives of countless children and their families have been positively impacted as a result of our efforts to grant wishes.
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.
