Co-founded in October 2012 by MU students Kenny Cygeirt and Hai Kim, Mizzou Wishmakers on Campus partners with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Missouri. The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children older than 2 1/2 years old and younger than 18 who have a life-threatening illness.

Mizzou Wishmakers on Campus helps raise money to grant these wishes by holding a number of fundraising events throughout the year and receiving sponsorship funds. Events include trivia nights, a 5K race and its annual volleyball tournament. As of May 2014, the organization was sponsored by McAlister's Deli, Cassidy Turley, Broadway Brewery, Hy-Vee, Sparky's Homemade Ice Cream and Kraft.

Mizzou Wishmakers on Campus is led by a board of directors and events are coordinated by a steering committee.

As of May 2014, Mizzou Wishmakers on Campus had granted two children's wishes and was the process of granting a third.

Mizzou Wishmakers on Campus also works to spread awareness of the Make-A-Wish Foundation to other parts of Missouri.
