The Samuel & Josephine Plumeri Wishing Place

The Samuel & Josephine Plumeri Wishing Place

The Wishing Place is the only one of its kind. It provides an environment that is free of limitations, confinement, and stress. It stimulates the imagination and reveals to seriously-ill children the imaginative possibilities of a wish.

Managing Our Funds 

Make-A-Wish New Jersey 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. Our financial statements are audited locally by CliftonLarsonAllen LLP.

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 a three year average of audit results, Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey spent 74% of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses. 10% of every dollar was spent on management and general costs and 16% was allocated to fundraising. For full financial details please review our most recent FY20 Audited Financial Statements or our latest 990.
