Help Us To Grant Wishes!

Run a Fundraiser for Make-A-Wish at your School! 

The best way to fundraise is by having fun! Focus on what you enjoy most, organise a fundraising event and in doing so become a wish granter for a child in need.


Plan your event! Pick a fundraising idea from the ideas included, or use your own creativity to come up with some new and novel idea to get people involved. Pick a day to run your event.


Get everyone involved! Next, you’ll need to decide where to advertise your event and recruit as many people as possible to participate. Enclosed is a blank poster for you to use to promote your own event. This should tell everyone the type of event you’re running, when it’s taking place and who to contact to get involved.


Aim for the stars with your fundraising! Have a suggested donation amount for each person taking part. Speak to the Make-A-Wish team about setting up an online page for your event on iDonate or JustGiving or through Facebook. This way everyone can make donations easily on this page.


Grant magical wishes! Ask for the donation money to be in by a fixed date – you can always extend this if you need to. Once you’ve collected the donations send them to Make-A-Wish


Share the magic! Don’t forget to share pictures and videos of your specific event with us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter and use #wishgranter.


If you would like further information or need any help at all, please contact Mary at  or call 086 067 0718 to find out how you can help to make the magical wishes come true for children across Ireland living with life-threatening medical conditions!

Do you need a volunteer or staff member from Make-A-Wish to visit your school and talk about Make-A-Wish?
