The Dayton Chapter of the A Special Wish Foundation is the only wish granting organization in the Miami Valley, providing wishes to children through age 20 with a life-threatening illness. A Special Wish Foundation has been granting wishes to local Dayton area children since 1983, and has granted over 1,400 unique wishes to local children. Trips to Disney World, bedroom makeovers, shopping sprees, meeting a favorite celebrity or sports figure are just a few of the many wishes ASW has fulfilled! Operating on minimal expenses, over 90 cents of each donated dollar is directed toward granting wishes, not overhead costs.
