Stella's Wish

After Kayla, a teenage girl at Stella’s church, surprised Stella by making her wish of going to Disney World come true, Stella saw a need and a whole new wish was in her heart. Stella’s new wish was to have a foundation which granted wishes for adults 18+ who were diagnosed with a life-threatening cancer. 

To honor the final wish of his wife, Don Czerniewski began Stella’s Wish Foundation in February 2008. In her memory and her making a difference in so many lives, Stella’s Wish Foundation wants to reach and touch as many lives as possible. Since its beginning, Stella’s Wish has granted numerous wishes and the list continues to grow. 

Stella’s Wish Foundation is a non-profit foundation fully funded by sponsors, donors, and fundraisers. We began granting wishes in Missouri, but thanks to our growing list of supporters and donors we are now able to grant wishes across the United States. 

Stella’s Wish Foundation is a non-profit 501(c) (3) status foundation as of March 2, 2009.
