Managing Our Funds
Make-A-Wish Alabama 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 Deloitte LLP.
At Make-A-Wish Alabama, we take our responsibility for the monies donated to our cause very seriously and are pleased to confirm that according to the fiscal year 2019 audit results, Make-A-Wish Foundation Alabama spent 74% of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses. Only 7% of every dollar was spent on management and general costs and 19% was allocated to fundraising.
