Kids for Wish Kids®

A Kids Helping Kids Philanthropy Program

Kids For Wish Kids® is a Make-A-Wish® Oregon program that enables students to discover
philanthropy by selecting their own fundraising project and managing it from start to finish.

Students develop leadership skills, build self-esteem and learn about teamwork while working toward the final goal of making a difference in the lives of children with critical illnesses. 

For the third year in a row, our generous sponsor, First Tech Federal Credit Union, will match up to $12,500 of new donations from Kids For Wish Kids partners during the 2018-2019 school year.

For more information, please contact Catherine Spellman, Community Engagement Director, at




  • Beaverton High School has been a supporter of Make-A-Wish since 2005. If Rick Kim had one wish in the world, it would be to visit and entertain kids in local hospitals to perform magic tricks. A wish that's reflective of his big heart: "Seeing the happiness and joy on a child’s face brings me joy, makes me thankful that Make-A-Wish is here for these kiddos, and fills me with gratitude that I was able to help in some small way." Rick is a true champion of our mission, and we are so grateful for his support. To read more about our featured volunteer of December visit:

  • Southridge High School adopts a wish of a local child every year through their fundraising events.
