We will then notify your family of all donations received in your loved one's memory. Please ensure that the funeral home has our current organization name and address to print in the obituary.

Our "Wedding Wishes" program offers a meaningful alternative to standard wedding favors. In lieu of favors, you can make a gift to the Foundation in honor of your guests and we will provide customized acknowledgements. Beyond weddings, your tribute can be customized for any occasion, such as an anniversary, retirement, or milestone birthday.
If your child is celebrating a birthday, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, or graduation, you can request donations to the Make-A-Wish Foundation in your child's honor, in lieu of presents. Your child will receive a special letter acknowledging the gifts received in her name...and will experience the joy of helping another child in need! We can provide Make-A-Wish donation envelopes to include in party invitations and Make-A-Wish balloons for your party.
