How to Refer a Child
The referral process is easy:
We will accept a referral from medical professionals, parents/guardians and the potential wish child.
If you are anyone other than a parent/guardian or the potential wish child, you must first speak with the family and have their permission to contact Make-A-Wish®. We do not intrude on a family's privacy and want them to feel comfortable with the wish process.
We can accept referrals by phone, mail, fax or online.
You will need some basic information to make a referral including the child's name, medical condition and birthday, parents' names, address, phone number, and physician's name and phone number.
You may use our online wish referral form *
