Managing Our Funds
Make-A-Wish North Dakota proudly manages and safeguards the generous contributions of individual donors, corporations and other organizations. We finance our endeavors through corporate sponsorships, special events, foundation grants and personal contributions. However, we do not solicit funds by telephone via telemarketers 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.
We take our responsibility for the monies entrusted to our cause very seriously and are pleased to confirm that according to the fiscal year 2019 audit results, Make-A-Wish North Dakota spent 73% of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses. Only 10% of every dollar was spent on management and general costs and 17% was allocated to fundraising.
Our financial statements are audited locally by CliftonLarsonAllen LLP and our IRS Form 990 is prepared by Deloitte. For more in depth information, please view our most recent audit and 990. To request additional information, please contact President and CEO, Billi Jo Zielinski.
