Working with Us

More Than Just a Nice Place to Work

In addition to being a heart-warming and respected nonprofit, Make-A-Wish® fosters a vibrant, diverse and entrepreneurial workplace.

It's hard not to get excited about our work. The wishes granted to children with life-threatening medical conditions across the country bring hope to wish kids, strengthen families, and make life better for everyone involved in those wishes.

We are always on the lookout for great talent. Learn more about working here and then check available positions.


Doctors and nurses say that wishes are an important tool in treating kids with life-threatening medical conditions. Playing a part in making that kind of impact is extremely rewarding work. ”

— Frances, 20+ year Make-A-Wish America staff member


We continually seek ways to strengthen our diversity initiatives because individual differences expand and enrich our professional experiences and abilities.

Our strong commitment to diversity also helps in recruiting and retaining the best talent. It advances our vision of granting the wish of every eligible child.

We respect and ensure equal opportunity, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, perceived disability and other legally protected characteristics.
