Granting Wishes

Wish Granters is a nonprofit organization located in Boise, Idaho. Here, we make a lasting impact in the lives of Idaho families by granting wishes to adults who have been diagnosed with a non-age-related terminal illness, or potentially terminal illness.

Most of these wishes are heartfelt; being able to touch, feed, and watch your family ride a Clydesdale horse; or as simple as a Wish Bag full of items that allow the recipient the comfort, independence, and dignity that they deserve.

Wish Granters Mission

Wish Granters mission is to improve the quality of life of terminally ill Idaho adults and their primary caregivers, by granting them wishes and by supporting projects in their local communities, thereby providing opportunities for these adults and their loved ones to have lasting memories to cherish forever.
Wish Granters is the only adult wish-granting organization in Idaho currently serving Ada, Canyon, and Gem Counties. Wish Granters does not receive any State or Federal funding and relies on donations from our generous community members, businesses, peer to peer fundraisers, and fundraisers.

A shout out to our recent wish recipients and their family members. These are a few photos of recent wishes.  Our Wish Program continues to provide wishes to adults facing a terminal illness.

Granting Wishes, Giving Hope and Creating Lasting Memories. Thank you for your continued support.

Rowland’s wish was to attend a Steelheads Hockey game with his family.  He passed away before it could happen, but we were able to bring the family to the arena to watch the game and remember Rowland.  Thank you to Tyson Baker of Baker Auction Co. for donating the suite for the family to use at the game; and thanks to Nate Jordan and Idaho Central Arena for donating the food for the family.
