Phoenix NAP has announced the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America, one of the world's leading children's charities, has chosen the Phoenix NAP facility to meet its IT infrastructure and hosting needs. By making this selection, the Make-A-Wish Foundation is securing both the physical server space and Internet bandwidth to continue to grow and effectively deliver its wish-granting mission for children with life-threatening medical conditions across the United States.

"We appreciate Phoenix NAP for making this extremely generous contribution that helps the Make-A-Wish Foundation with a variety of critical needs," said Jim Toy, Make-A-Wish Foundation of America chief information officer. "This provides our organization with next-generation security and connectivity and a 100-percent uptime guarantee, all crucial to our operations. We will be able to better serve our 64 chapters and other constituents across the country, and of course devote much-needed financial resources to granting children's wishes."

The Make-A-Wish Foundation will receive complimentary space and data transit from the data center for the national office, located in Phoenix, and its 64 chapters, which serve every community in the United States.

"We've always been very community focused, and we are thrilled to help support a world-class organization like the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Helping them put more funds into wish granting programs is a pleasure and the fact that they are headquartered in Phoenix just reinforces our commitment to this area," said Ian McClarty, president of Phoenix NAP.

Phoenix NAP has used local contractors, laborers, and other skilled workforce members in its previous construction phases.
