Coronavirus (COVID-19) Impact on Make-A-Wish

For the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and wish kids, Make-A-Wish Central New York is currently closed to visitors. Staff are working remotely through March 31st at which time we will reevaluate our protocols based on advice from our state and local officials. In the interim, we can be reached by phone or email. Make-A-Wish is 100% committed to granting the wish of every eligible child. Your continued support during this challenging time is appreciated. Be safe and well.


The health and safety of all Make-A-Wish constituents, including our wish families, volunteers and partners, is our priority. At this time, due to current medical and public concerns, Make-A-Wish America has made the difficult decision to postpone all wish travel, as well as wish kid participation in all activities and events related to Make-A-Wish that involve large gatherings (e.g. large scale wish granting events, theme parks, etc.) until further notice.

We will continue to monitor guidance from national and international public health and government organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. State Department, and are working closely with the national Make-A-Wish Medical Advisory Council, keeping the best interest of the children and families we serve at the center of all decisions we make.

Make-A-Wish Central New York remains committed to our vision of granting the wish of every eligible child fighting a critical illness. Your support is as critical as ever, as there are more wish kids waiting for wishes than ever before. Your help today will bring hope and joy to wish kids in our community tomorrow.

Please direct any questions or concerns to our chapter office at 315-475-WISH (9474) or

Thank you for being the hope for kids in need
