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.
