Managing Our Funds
Make-A-Wish Georgia finances its endeavors through corporate sponsorships, special events, foundation grants and individual contributions. Make-A-Wish Georgia does not solicit funds by telephone and receives no federal or state funding. As a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, all contributions are deductible to the extent permitted by law. The chapter’s financial statements are audited locally by CliftonLarsonAllen LLP.
Considering recent events, the pandemic impacted our funding and challenged the way we deliver our mission, but we continue to take our responsibility for the contributions donated to our cause very seriously. We are pleased to confirm this according to the fiscal year 2020 audit results. For full financial details, please review our most recent audited financial statement, annual impact report , or our latest 990.
We are proud to be a BBB Georgia Accredited Charity Seal Holder, having met all 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. We have also been awarded the 2021 Gold Seal of Transparency from Guidestar by Candid.
