The mission of A Special Wish Foundation, Inc. (ASW) is to enhance the quality of life for those children having a life-threatening/terminal disorder by granting their special wish. ASW was the first wish-granting organization in the State of Ohio and the third such organization in the nation, when it was founded in 1982. ASW is the only major wish granting organization in the United States which grants wishes to qualifying infants/children/ adolescents from birth through and including the age of 20 years. The average cost of a wish is $4000, and most wishes come in three forms . . . a “special” gift, a “special” place, or a “special” hero.
ASW is funded solely through the ongoing generosity of organizations, corporations, religious institutions, and individuals, which is the largest percentage of financial support. 95% of the individuals who work for ASW do so as volunteers. Regardless of your interests, or the amount of time you have to give, ASW can offer volunteer opportunities where you can use your time, talents and treasures. Please contact A Special Wish if you’d like to become a part of something “special”.
