Managing Our Funds

Make-A-Wish Wisconsin finances endeavor 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 the fiscal year 2020 audit results, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin spent 70% of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses. Only 12% of every dollar was spent on management and general costs and 18% was allocated to fundraising. For full financial details please review our most recent FY21 Audited Financial StatementsFY21 Annual Report or our latest 990.  

We are proud to be a BBB Wisconsin Accredited Charity Seal Holder, having met all 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. And we are a two-time recipient of the Wisconisn BBB Torch Award for Ethics.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, we know a wish unites neighbors, friends and entire communities in life-changing experiences, no matter their background. We understand that, to grant the wish of every eligible child, we must foster an environment that is diverse, inclusive, and equitable.

We are committed to representation and acceptance, creating a sense of belonging and equality for all wish families, volunteers, donors, supporters, board, and staff. We stand against racism, violence and intolerance and aim to be inclusive of and welcoming to all people and backgrounds.
