Managing our Funds


Responsible stewards of every dollar raised.

Make-A-Wish Foundation® Wisconisn is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization which is funded by donations from individuals, corporations, small businesses, foundations and community organizations. Companies and individuals also donate a variety of in-kind services and products that enable Make-A-Wish to make wishes come true.

As responsible stewards of the funds we raise, we strive to keep our administrative and fundraising costs to a minimum so a vast majority of every dollar goes directly towards wish granting. Nearly 76 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to wish granting.

Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin works to ensure that every donated dollar is spent wisely, and efforts are made to maximize efficiency. Our chapter meets every guideline established by the Better Business Bureau, in fact, Make-A-Wish Wisconsin was named a Torched Award winner for Business Ethics by the Better Business Bureau of Wisconsin in 2009 and 2019. We continue to find ways to do more with each dollar we receive and work to increase in-kind donations without compromising the quality of wishes we grant.

Make-A-Wish Wisconsin respects the donor intent of every donation we receive from every prospective donor. We have made a pledge to you that Make-A-Wish Wisconsin adheres to the Association of Fundraising Professionals code of ethical principles and standards of professional practice.
