“We are incredibly grateful for the ongoing support of BOK Financial. Their commitment to making a difference in the lives of children with critical illnesses is truly inspiring,” said Fran Mallace, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish Arizona. “By doubling the impact of every donation, we can create even more magical moments for wish kids and their families.”
“This is such a worthwhile cause that we know is near and dear to our community,” said BOK Financial’s Arizona market CEO Chet Samuelson. “Being able to contribute in this way means a lot to us as we are endlessly inspired by the work being done by Make-A-Wish here in Phoenix.”
The average cost of a wish is $10,000 and Make-A-Wish Arizona’s Giving Tuesday fundraising goal is $200,000 – enough to grant 20 wishes. There are currently more than 600 hundred children in Arizona who are waiting for their wishes to be granted.
Make-A-Wish Arizona provides 100 percent of the cost of a wish and relies exclusively on donations to fund wishes. Many families who receive a wish are already going through financial hardship with medical care costs. Make-A-Wish Arizona wants to ensure that there are no obstacles for the family so the wish kid can enjoy their wish.
“Every contribution, no matter the size, will make a significant difference in the lives of wish kids,” Mallace continued. “By participating in Giving Tuesday and supporting Make-A-Wish Arizona, you can help bring happiness and strength to children battling critical illnesses.”
