The Jacob Ball Wish Fund benefits children as special as he was.  Although Jacob was only 12 when he passed away in 2013, his joyful impact continues through the wishes this fund brings to life. Donations allow our organization to fund “wishes” that provide special needs students with the experiences and developmental skill builders that would otherwise be unavailable to them.

3 Simple Steps

Is there a child, or children with special needs in your classroom, your family, your life, your thoughts, your heart? Is there an activity, event, outing, or resource they’d love to experience, but it’s unavailable, due to cost? Share your wish with us. Hopefully, we can bring the wish to life. In three years, we’ve joyfully funded wishes that have touched 300 children.

Submit your wish on the behalf of a child, or a group of children.
We’ll review your wish.
We’ll notify you about our decision as soon as we can.

Share your wish with us.
