Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles Names Mike Kallhoff as President & CEO

Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles has appointed Mike Kallhoff as President and CEO. With over two decades of nonprofit experience, Kallhoff most recently served as President and CEO of United Way of the Wine Country.

While at United Way of the Wine Country, Kallhoff grew the nonprofit’s budget from $3-10 million annually. He also served as Vice President of Resource Development at Valley of the Sun United Way in Phoenix where he managed a $35 million major gift campaign. In addition, Kallhoff is a “wish dad”— his youngest daughter was granted a wish to go to Disneyworld, which was a life-changing experience for his family.

Kallhoff earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Wayne State College in 2001 and a master’s in management from the University of Phoenix in 2007.

Founded in 1983, Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. The LA chapter has granted more than 9,700 wishes to children in Los Angeles County. The chapter grants over 300 wishes each year, and facilitates nearly as many wishes for children from all over the world whose wish is to come to Los Angeles.  

Make-A-Wish Greater LA will mark their 35th Anniversary milestone year at their annual Wish Gala on October 24th at The Beverly Hilton.
