Granting life-changing Starlight Wishes to seriously ill children

Welcome to the Starlight Wish Circle, an exclusive group of supporters passionate about the life changing power of a Starlight Wish.

Starlight Wish Circle members give the gift of hope to sick children often in the toughest of times, helping them to dream big, leave the pain of treatment behind and experience a lasting, positive impact on their wellbeing.

Committing to a contribution of $6,500 (with an invitation to renew annually), Starlight Wish Circle members help sick kids' dreams come true.

Why Starlight Wishes

Starlight Wish children are happier and more confident with improved resilience and self-esteem, families feel closer, more connected and kids feel empowered in selecting and reflecting on their Starlight Wish.

Wishgranting is at the heart of what we do. Every Starlight Wish we grant has a lasting positive impact and 100% of Starlight Wish families would recommend a Starlight Wish to another family. We granted our first Starlight Wish in 1988 and since then have granted over 11,000 unique Starlight Wishes to seriously ill children and young people across Australia.

The need

In 2019, over 686 sick children were referred by health professionals for a Starlight Wish, however research shows thousands of Australian children are eligible for a Starlight Wish.

Every Starlight Wish is unique, and tailored to the child. On average each Starlight Wish requires funding of $6,500.
