Propose an Event

Thank you for your interest in raising money through an event for
Make-A-Wish® East Tennessee.

An EXTERNAL EVENT is defined as a fundraising event that has been created, planned, and executed by an outside entity (individual, organization, Foundation, community/civic group, company, etc.) to benefit Make-A-Wish East Tennessee. We are available to answer questions and provide support. 

Putting on an event and seeing so many people to come out and being so willing to help makes me very proud to be a part of such a wonderful community. ”

— Tamara, a multi-year external event fundraiser

Our average wish cost is ~$8,300 and we ask that you consider that as you plan and execute your event.  We are certainly grateful for any amount that we receive but our wishes and our wish costs continue to increase and we need everyone’s help in continuing to grant wishes to some very special children.
