Managing Our Funds

Make-A-Wish® Nebraska finances endeavors through corporate sponsorships, special events, foundation grants and individual contributions. However, we do not solicit funds by telephone and receive no federal or state funding. As a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, all contributions are deductible to the extent permitted by law.  

At Make-A-Wish, we take our responsibility for the monies donated to our cause very seriously and are pleased to confirm that according to the fiscal year 2021 audit results, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Nebraska spent 80% of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses. Only 7% of every dollar was spent on management and general costs and 13% was allocated to fundraising.  

For full financial details please review our most recent FY21 Audit and Annual Report:

We are proud that Make-A-Wish Nebraska once again holds a 4-Star Rating on Charity Navigator

Charity Navigator works to advance a more efficient and responsive philanthropic marketplace by evaluating the financial health of America's largest charities. 

A 4-star rating is Charity Navigator's highest rating and indicates that our organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way. Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that Make-A-Wish Nebraska exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in our cause. We are honored to have received Charity Navigator’s 9th consecutive 4-star rating. According to Charity Navigator, only 4% of the charities they evaluate have received at least 9 consecutive 4-star evaluations.
