Leaders in Joy

In 2014, Make-A-Wish Michigan recognized 30 special supporters as our Leaders in Joy – community partners who have been game changers for our organization and impacted our ability to deliver our mission. Since then, we have continued to acknowledge special supporters who have made an incredible impact on the Make-A-Wish mission. 

Our Leaders in Joy have played an integral role in helping grant transformational wishes to more than 10,000 Michigan kids since 1984. Their support through the years has helped us create life-changing experiences for our courageous wish kids, and we are grateful.
