W.I.S.H. Society

2018_WS_WebsiteHeader

Make-A-Wish® hosts an annual women’s initiative called the W.I.S.H. Society. The name stands for Women Inspiring Strength & Hope and the program celebrates women who do just that.

Every year, dynamic and genuine women are honored for their philanthropic contributions, career success, partnership with Make-A-Wish, and any number of other qualifications. As Honorees, over the course of a two-month campaign, they transform into Fairy Godmothers as each woman raises funds to grant at least one child’s wish - a minimum commitment of $6,000.

In November, as the campaign draws to a close, these outstanding Fairy Godmothers are honored during our annual W.I.S.H. Society luncheons in the Charlotte and Triad regions. Honoree’s’ philanthropic and professional achievements are recognized and each region’s W.I.S.H. Society Woman of the Year is named.

Since the W.I.S.H. Society was established in 2013, our incredible alumnae have raised more than $1,167,000 to grant the wishes of 195 children in our community.
