Donate

Thank you for your kind consideration to make a donation to grant wishes of children in the age3 to 18 years, diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition, like Cancer, Thalassemia, HIV etc.

The 250+ volunteers at Make-A-Wish India meet almost 10,000 children every year in the 125 partner hospitals and identify their innermost cherished wish. Granting their wish in a memorable way has helped restore in many children hope, strength and joy. It has also helped them not to drop out from their medical treatment.

Power of a Wish: For children battling life-threatening illnesses the joys of childhood are replaced with a daily battle for survival, painful treatment and medication and endless rounds of hospitals. The fulfilment of the most cherished wish of a child who has very little hope of enjoying a normal, healthy life not only gives happiness and joy to him/her but also has a therapeutic effect on the child. Doctors have often reported an improvement in the child’s physical condition, after the fulfilment of his / her dearest wish. A wish fulfilment makes a sick child believe that anything is possible – even the future.

In 2016, Make-A-Wish India aims to grant wishes of over 6000 such kids. Most of the children wish to have material things like a mobile phone, Tab, DVD player, video games, laptop, bicycle, battery operated car, dolls with kitchen sets or go to a holiday place like Goa, Kashmir or a religious place. Hence, the average wish cost is Rs. 8000/-.

Lack of funds is one of the key reasons why we are unable to grant a wish. Hence, it is our fervent appeal, to be as generous as you can when you select a donation button below.

We request you to please keep in mind the following points for any kind of donation:

  • All donations received in India, in favour of Make-A-Wish Foundation of India, are tax exempt u/s 80G of Income Tax Act, India.

  • Legacy Giving

    You can create legacy gifts for many different reasons. For some, it is a way to ensure their memory lives on. For others, it is a way to ensure that Make-A-Wish India is able to continue its important work.

    What better way to thank Make-A-Wish India for having made an impact on your life, or the life of someone you love, than by making a contribution from your hard earned savings. By creating a legacy, you are making a significant contribution to the future sustainability of the work that is most meaningful to you.

    A legacy gift is a mechanism for you to let Make-A-Wish India know that how much you really care about the work they do to restore hope, strength and joy in the wish children.

    Gifts both large and small are important — legacy giving is not just for the wealthy. Everyone who supports Make-A-Wish India is at a different stage of his or her life and able to give at a different level. Whatever your specific situation may be, we can help you find a legacy giving option that suits your circumstances.

    Take the time to consider your options carefully and plan your gift in consultation with your family, lawyer or financial and/or tax advisor.

    For more information on how you can build your legacy, please contact Deepak S Bhatia on ceo@makeawishindia.org
