Since 1980, Make-A-Wish® America has offered hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
From our humble beginnings with one boy’s wish to be a police officer, we’ve evolved into an organization that grants a child’s wish in the United States and its territories every 40 minutes.
In Hawaii alone, we have granted over 800 wishes to our local keiki.
Founded in 1982, Make-A-Wish® Hawaii is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Our mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. Fulfilling a child’s wish provides a joyful and meaningful experience that benefits both the child and the family.
Make-A-Wish America traces its beginning to one boy’s wish. In 1980, 7-year-old Christopher James Greicius was being treated for leukemia. Every day, he dreamed of becoming a police officer.

Make-A-Wish Hawaii was founded in 1982 and has granted more than 800 wishes for local children. Nationally, Make-A-Wish has granted over 200,000 wishes.
In concert with granting wishes for the keiki of Hawaii we also assist other chapters to host more than 650 wish children annually, that choose to visit the Islands as their one true wish.
In our chapter, we currently are looking for volunteers and welcome all interested individuals.
Wish referrals are coming in faster than the funds needed to support them.
