Make-A-Wish South Dakota & Montana

Make-a-Wish grants wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

Who Is Eligible? A child with a life-threatening medical condition who has reached the age of 2 ½ and is younger than 18 at the time of referral is potentially eligible for a wish and has not received a wish from another wish-granting organization.

Who Can Refer a Child? Out of respect for the privacy of the children and families we serve, children who may be eligible to receive a wish can be referred by one of four sources:

  • Medical professionals (typically a doctor, nurse, social worker, or child-life specialist).
  • Parents/legal guardians.
  • Children being treated  for a critical illness.
  • Family members with detailed knowledge of the child’s current medical condition.

They will only contact you after a wish referral has been submitted by an approved source.

If you are not eligible to refer a child, please share the referral inquiry form with the family or ask them to visit our website.
