W.I.S.H. Society

The Women Inspiring Strength and Hope (W.I.S.H.) Society is a group of dynamic and inspiring women that includes wish granters, wish moms, and professional women who believe that every child deserves a childhood filled with hope and joy.

The precursor to the present-day W.I.S.H. Society dates back to 2013 when a small group of 21 dedicated women "Honorees" were nominated to raise money to help grant wishes for kids battling critical illnesses. From 2013-19, more than 170 Honorees raised money in support of wish kids. To this day, many of those trailblazing women remain committed as prestigious Founding W.I.S.H. Society Members, and along with other current members, are connected by their shared desire to enhance the mission of Make-A-Wish Central & Western North Carolina.

Women like you are joining this community to network, volunteer, and help change the lives of kids battling critical illnesses across the region.

In addition to granting wishes, the W.I.S.H. Society offers opportunities for quarterly networking and wish volunteering for members to connect with like-minded women who share a passion for creating a lasting impact in central and western North Carolina.
