A gift of any amount will bring hope and joy into a child’s life when it is needed most. Research shows that children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. A wish replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.

Donate Airline Miles and Points

Wishes involving travel and gatherings were put on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic, but as of September 15, 2021, Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area is now able to grant some travel and gathering wishes, as well as some in-person celebrity wishes. As travel wishes resume, now is a great time to donate unused airline miles for wish kids and their families. Once donated, your miles never expire and will send wish children and their families on unforgettable experiences as it becomes safe.

You can support Make-A-Wish's Wishes in Flight® Program by donating unused airline miles and points from Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, United Airlines, Delta Air Lines and JetBlue. To donate and learn more, please click here.
