Wish Upon A Star is a charitable organization, in the state of Illinois, dedicated to fulfilling the dreams and wishes of children with life threatening illnesses. During the first ten years of our organization, we donated tens of thousands of dollars to the Ronald McDonald house. In 1990 the Board of Directors determined there was a need to provide a means for “local dreams” to become a reality and decided to focus on granting wishes on an individual and local basis in Illinois.

If you or a loved one knows a child in need of a wish, please contact us or download a form from the wish request page and return it to our office. We will do everything in our power to grant that child’s wish and help create great, lasting memories for the child, as well as his or her family!
