Granting adult wishes since May 3, 2014

Wish Eligibility

Unlike many other wish granting organizations, the Fairy Foundation grants wishes solely to adults.

To be eligible for a wish you must:

  • be facing a life-threatening medical condition,
  • reached the age of 18 at the time of referral,
  • reside in the United States, and
  • lack the resources to fulfill the wish yourself.

We do not grant the following wishes:

  • Requests for adults with chronic illnesses, unless they are in their last year of life
  • Cash, financial assistance or reimbursements for completed wishes
  • Surprise wishes
  • Legal assistance
  • Automobiles, lifts, repairs and RV rentals
  • Hunting
  • Property and home improvements and repairs
  • Funeral arrangements or posthumous requests
  • Medical treatment / supplies / equipment / transportation or dental extractions
  • Any wish request deemed offensive, inappropriate or inconsistent with Fairy Foundation's values or those of our corporate partners

If your wish application is approved, the Fairy Foundation asks that you share your wish experience with us.

Although our goal is to help every applicant, we are limited to the funds available through our generous donors, sponsors and fundraising efforts. Completing and submitting this application, does not guarantee a wish will be granted.

We cannot process any incomplete applications.
