Indiana Children’s Wish Fund is a single-entity statewide wish-granting organization, that grants wishes to Indiana children, ages 3-18, who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening or terminal illness. We are not affiliated with any other wish-granting organizations. Indiana Children’s Wish Fund was founded in August of 1984 and is celebrating 31 years of wish granting. Wish Children are referred to our organization by their doctors, nurses, social workers, parents, etc. Our most requested wish is trips to Disney World for the whole family, along with meeting celebrities, shopping sprees and family vacations. Some of our unique wishes have been to meet former Presidents, the Pope, working with Mother Theresa and bringing a Grandmother to the United States from Ethiopia to visit her grandchild. We have even had a wish child who ended up being an extra on the set of a Tom Cruise movie!
