Make-A-Wish – Our 2017 Social Mission Partner
At Fig, we believe in the power of a community that works together to identify needs and find solutions—one that creates connections and is passionate about helping its neighbors. For our 2017 Social Mission Partner, we’ve chosen Make-A-Wish South Carolina, an impactful non-profit whose good works contribute immensely to our thriving, local community.
Students around the country are engaging friends, leading others, and hosting successful Wish Week fundraisers at their schools.
Wish Week is a week’s worth of fundraising, made up of daily fundraising events, held at a school in support of the Kids For Wish Kids program and Make-A-Wish mission. Your help grants wishes for kids in your community who are facing life-threatening medical conditions.
Wish Week fundraisers enable you to help make wishes come true for kids with critical illnesses. In addition to helping grant wishes, students can expect to walk away with a better understanding of leadership experience, community service, money management skills, and more. There are countless ways you can make a Wish Week fun and raise money, from hosting a coin drive to dress-up days. We can help you decide on the best ideas for your school.
