Make-A-Wish Foundation

Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Approximately 500 children in Massachusetts and Rhode Island are newly diagnosed with critical illnesses each year. The vision of Make-A-Wish is to grant the wish of every medically eligible child.

AIS has been a supporter of Make-A-Wish for numerous years and contacted the foundation to offer a full furniture donation for their new space. For the new space, AIS donated panel systems, Benching, Conference Tables, Private Offices, and a wide array of seating. "AIS hopes that having a newly furnished office space will enhance the organization’s mission to provide life-changing wishes in the lives of children with critical illnesses,” AIS President and CEO Bruce Platzman said.

“With our quest to fulfill the wish of every eligible child, it was time to move to a larger space. AIS was the first donor to support this vision, enabling us to more deeply engage staff, volunteers, donors, partners, and the community in our wish granting. This transformational gift will guide our growth to the next level of impact in reaching more children,” — Charlotte Beattie, CEO  Make-A-Wish MA and RI
