What is the Twilight Wish Foundation?
Our Mission is to honor and enrich the lives of deserving seniors through with granting celebrations that connect generations.
Our Vision is to Make the world a nicer place to age, one wish at a time.
What Types of Wishes Des Twilight Wish Grant? Sometimes a wish fulfills an immediate need. Sometimes it is a last wish or a lifelong dream. Large or small, all wishes provide a meaningful "THANK YOU" to the senior for a lifetime of service to others.
Simple Needs/Quality of Life Wishes: Examples include clothing, wheelchairs/walkers, appliances, & more!
Celebrating a Life Wishes: Meaningful & nostalgic wishes granted for hospice patients or recipients with limited life expectancies. These wishes can include family reunions, visits to hometowns, chances to return to a job or career one more time, or similar wish that validates and brings joy to the recipient.
Living Life to the Fullest Wishes: Examples include riding on a motorcycle, meeting a celebrity, publishing a book, attending a sporting event or any other amazing life moment wishes!
Veterans’ Wishes: Veterans’ wishes can fall into any of the other 3 programs, but we differentiate this program as it gives us an opportunity to thank veterans for what they have done for others over the years, and show that we remember and care.
What Qualifies as a Wish? Any individual who...
Is over the age of 68 or a permanent member of an eldercare facility
