The Wish Connection, Granting Amazing Wishes

We grant amazing wishes, create smiling faces and build a connection between families and a community that cares.


Celebrating 15 Years of Wishes

We are so excited to be celebrating our 15th Anniversary Year of creating lasting memories and smiles for more than 100 children and their families around the country. Thanks to generous in-kind and monetary donations from individuals, companies, and groups, we have connected with children and families who truly deserve a chance for a dream to come true. The Wish Connection is unique in that we stay connected with our families as part of our “Wish Care” program. We love you all and hope you will join us in our celebration of 15 years granting amazing wishes.

Who We Are

Watching a child’s face light up with joy is priceless. Whether it’s a trip to Disney World, a swim with the dolphins, or hanging out with a famous country singer, it’s the chance for a dream to come true and to lift up a child, and their entire family, along the way. That’s what we do as part of The Wish Connection. We’re here to grant amazing wishes, create smiling faces, and build a connection between families and a community that cares. The Wish Connection is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was formed in the fall of 2006 by AT&T employees in San Antonio wanted to be directly involved in granting the wishes of children who have life-threatening or chronically debilitating medical conditions. The Wish Connection is truly a unique wish-granting organization that has expanded its grant-giving to Austin and Dallas, Texas, and several locations in California.
