Our Impact

Backyard Wishes identified a strong need for support of children in the ISD110 community. Our organization supports payment of locally based school activities, after school childcare, school fees, winter gear and school clothing.

Over the past eleven years, Backyard Wishes has granted over 1,035 wishes to families and children in the Waconia community. 100% of the donations we receive go directly toward our mission of ensuring a true sense of belonging.

Backyard Wishes also participates in the annual Waconia High School Awards Ceremony by providing scholarships valued at $500 each.
