Most children will have a lifetime to have their special wishes come true. But for children with life threatening illnesses, sometimes a special wish must last a lifetime. The Wishing Well Foundation, Inc. is committed to creating cherished moments for those special children here in Collier & Lee Counties and to offer ongoing love and support to their families.
Why Was The Wishing Well Foundation Formed?
Our Foundation began in September 1994 with a group of dedicated, un-paid community volunteers from Marco Island & Naples who after successfully raising funds and granting wishes for the previous year for another organization, decided that the dollars raised in their communities should be used for our local children. With a powerful belief in what they were doing, a commitment was made to create our Foundation.
What Makes Us Unique?
Funds raised will only only be used for children residing in Collier and Lee Counties.
No telephone solicitation.
Orientation program for all Volunteers and a mandatory training program for all Wish Grantors.
Ongoing contact with our Wish Children and their families with cards, phone calls, special surprise gifts, and outings/events so that the families continue to feel our commitment. This continuous available support is crucial to our families who desperately need all the love and support we can give them.
We provide assistance to the families in getting media attention when they need help in raising funds for medical costs.
Kids Caring and Sharing Club. A program being formed for kids to get involved with helping our Wish Kids.
