State Charity

Nebraska Student Councils and NASC have played an important role for Make A Wish since 1989. It is the commitment of caring schools and communities like yours that allows Make-A-Wish of Nebraska to enhance the lives of Nebraska Wish Families. Nebraska wish kids face life-threatening illnesses, so when a wish is granted, these kids are able to take their minds off their treatment. For wish kids just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments, parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic, and still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy. Whatever the odds, whatever the obstacles ... NASC and wishes find a way to make the world better. NASC provides financial support to this foundation so it’s able to grant as many wishes as possible. This year’s funds will help NASC as an organization to reach the million-dollar mark in collective donations. Make-A-Wish Nebraska doesn’t even have a corporate donor to have reached this mark yet. NASC will be the only student organization in the state to have ever done this.

Candidates for NASC State President choose a charity as part of their platform, and member school councils are encouraged to support the charity of the State presidents choosing throughout the year.

When sending your donation to Make-a-Wish, be sure to identify you're a student council and send donations to

Check out what other schools around the state are doing! Kaitlynn at North Platte High School reports her school has done the following projects:

1- Fill-The-Gym
We did a campaign to fill the gym for one of our home basketball games. We made the admission free, but had a chili feed in the commons which you have to go through to get to the gym. It was $5 a person, or a free will donation. We had the highest attendance of any game of the season and we made a good profit for Make-A-Wish.
2- Car Wash
We have a "topless" car wash every summer. Our council washes the bottom of your car for free, but you have to pay for us to wash the TOP half.
3-Tailgate
We host a tailgate party before the first football game every year. Our local bank donates and grills all the hamburgers and hotdogs. Members each bring a case of pop and make a few dozen cookies to include with the price of a meal. The radio station broadcasts from our party and advertises Make-A-Wish. It is our most successful fundraiser every year.
