In pursuit of vast philanthropic goals, River Cohen Giving supports a wide range of causes and organizations. While there are certainly countless organizations worthy of philanthropic support, River Cohen Giving is especially proud to offer assistance to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America, an organization that has done so much for children and families throughout the United States.

With an inspiring vision in which the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America aims to “grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition,” the organization has been able to grant the wish of a child at a rate that averages out to one wish every 35 minutes. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of America relies on a massive network of support that numbers in the tens of thousands, and it is possible for anyone to offer additional support through several different methods.


Donations, Fundraisers, and Sponsorships 

Make-A-Wish Foundation of America offers a variety of ways in which interested parties are able to make a donation in support of the organization’s laudable efforts. In addition to one-time or recurring monthly financial donations, the organization also provides a number of convenient options from which to choose, including in-kind donations, matching gifts, or the donation of accumulated airline miles. It is also possible for an individual or organization to fund a specific wish of their choosing.

Fundraisers and sponsorships provide additional opportunities to offer support to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. Companies can consider becoming a national sponsor, while others can generate support for the organization through a wide range of fundraising strategies, including online fundraising as well as specific fundraising programs like Kids For Wish Kids, Wishmakers On Campus, Walk For Wishes, and Wishmakers at Work.


Products and Promotions 

The Make-A-Wish Foundation of America generates funds that support its wish-granting efforts through its Make-A-Wish Marketplace, which offers a wide range of products featuring the organization’s logo, including hats, shirts, pins, and a wealth of other items. Supporting the organization in this way not only ensures financial support, but it also helps the organization raise awareness of its efforts to help children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Through a number of corporate partnerships, it is also possible to support the efforts of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America through consumer purchases as well as cause-corporate programs. Companies often offer incentives to consumers that donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, while others host fundraisers or other events that generate financial support for the organization.


Volunteer Opportunities 

With chapters located all over the United States, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America is often in need of volunteers from the local community. These volunteer opportunities vary by location, but every chapter clearly benefits from access to an active network of volunteers who are able to donate their time and energy in support of the foundation’s goals for children and families throughout the United States.
