Making the World a Nicer Place to Age, One Wish at a Time


In May 2003, Cass Forkin was having lunch at a diner in Doylestown, Pa. After noticing several elderly women struggling to piece together change to pay their diner bill, Cass anonymously paid it for them. Their gratitude for her simple gesture inspired Cass to found Twilight Wish Foundation, the first national senior wish-granting organization dedicated to the needs of the elderly.

Our mission is to honor and enrich the lives of deserving seniors through intergenerational Twilight Wish celebrations.

Our vision is to impact cultural behavior by inspiring the way society views aging to make our world a nicer place to age, one Twilight Wish at a time.

Twilight Wish honors and acknowledges seniors for all they have given to others by bringing comfort and joy into their lives through individual wish granting celebrations.  Twilight Wish grants wishes to deserving elderly, age 65 and older, who earn less than 200% of poverty level annually, or who live in a nursing facility. By treating the elderly with compassion, we restore their dignity and bring them hope.
