Managing Our Funds 

Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida 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 the fiscal year 2019 audit results, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Northern Florida spent 74% of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses. Only 14% of every dollar was spent on management and general costs and 12% was allocated to fundraising. For full financial details please review our most recent FY19 Audited Financial Statements, or our latest 990. 

We are proud to be a BBB Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida Accredited Charity Seal Holder, having met all 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability.
