Idaho Organization Grants End-Of-Life Wishes For Adults

Wish Granters via Facebook


The Wish Granters foundation began in Idaho 2010 as a way to help terminally-ill adults. Similar to the Make a Wish Foundation, Wish Granters helps make end-of-life requests happen, but for those over age 18. This Idaho organization is growing by the year and while their fundraising efforts were thrown off by the pandemic, they have plans to expand into more Idaho counties by next year. 

Joining Idaho Matters to talk about the organization is the Director of Development and Programs, Dena McLaughlin and the president of the board, Cherie Coonce.
