The Rainbow Society of Alberta grants wishes throughout the province to children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening or severe chronic medical illness.


Volunteers are urgently needed in Calgary for our Women Fore Wishes Golf Classic on Thurs. Aug. 25! No experience required, just a willingness to help make wishes come true.  If you’re able to help, please call Sharon at 403-252-3891 or email

The Rainbow Society of Alberta believes in the power of community.  We are different from other international wish granting groups in that your donations are only used to grant wishes for sick children right here in Alberta.  Along with children who have a life-threatening condition, we also grant wishes for children who have a severe chronic medical illness.  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.

Wishes Granted!
