Wishmakers on Campus groups can be groups that solely fundraise and raise awareness for Make-A-Wish® Iowa. Wishmakers on Campus contribute a vast majority of their time and energy to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses.
Student groups such as student governments, athletic teams and Greek organizations, are also welcome to participate in Wishmakers on Campus by spending a portion of their time planning a specific fundraising event for Make-A-Wish Iowa.
The possibilities are endless- anything from a pancake breakfast or 5K walk/ run, to a bachelor/ bachelorette auction or silent auction. By participating in Wishmakers on Campus, you can help bring a ray of hope for children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. A fulfilled wish can replenish a child’s faith in the basic wholeness and goodness of the world. It lifts them up and carries them away to a place where dreams still do come true. It brings the magic back and with it…hope– as valuable a treatment as any medicine on Earth!
