Our People

The work of Make-A-Wish® is accomplished by a volunteer governing board of directors, a paid staff of dedicated employees, and hundreds of dedicated volunteers. The chapter is a 501(c)(3) non-profit incorporated in the commonwealth of California dedicated to sharing the power of a wish.

Our staff is dedicated to granting the wishes of children with critical illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy while maintaining the organization's grassroots fulfillment of its mission.
