Who We Are

Bake a Wish is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, started in Austin in September 2009 with an original mission of providing free birthday cakes to abused/neglected/abandoned children and youth who would not otherwise receive one.  Our very first delivery was to a young man for his 19th birthday.  We received a thank you note from the agency, who said it was the very first birthday cake he’d ever received.  Hard to imagine, isn’t it?  From that moment, we realized the importance of our mission.

With such an amazing mission, word about us spread rapidly. In the years following, we have expanded our mission to also serve Austin’s elderly and disabled adults in assisted housing communities.
