A Child. A Wish.
A Dream Come True!

Giving the gift of hope by granting wishes for children in Alberta diagnosed with a severe chronic or life-threatening medical illness.

The Rainbow Society of Alberta believes in the power of community.

All funds raised are used to grant wishes for children right here in Alberta. Along with children who have life-threatening conditions, we also grant wishes for children who have severe chronic medical illnesses. A child who is asking for a wish may have spent over half of the last year, or even half their lives, in the hospital. They have undergone medical procedures that would make grown adults weary. Their families have been by their side through it all, and are anxious and worried. A wish can give them hope. It can give them strength. It can let them know their community is doing what we can to help them get better.

In 2018, our administration costs accounted for only 5% of our total expenses for the year.
