Wish Granters is a nonprofit organization located in Boise, Idaho. Wish Granters makes a lasting impact in the lives of Idaho families by granting wishes to adults that have been diagnosed with a non-age-related terminal illness. Most of these wishes are heartwarmingly simple in nature that allow the recipient the comfort, independence, and dignity that they deserve. The Wish Granters mission to grant their wish, give them something to hold onto, something to look forward to, and their loved ones lasting memories to cherish forever.
Wish Granters was founded in July 2010 by Doug Raper. Doug received several requests for wishes for adults while working with a children’s wish organization. It was then that he decided to start an organization that would grant wishes to those bravely dealing with a terminal illness but who did not qualify for a wish from any other organization. The first wish granted was on December 17, 2010, to a gentleman diagnosed with ALS. His wish was for a helicopter ride, which he was able to do with his wife and two sons.
Wish Granters Inc. is the only adult wish-granting organization in Idaho currently serving Ada and Canyon Counties. Wish Granters does not receive any State or Federal funding and relies on donations from our generous community members and businesses, peer to peer fundraisers, and Wish Granters event fundraisers.
