Managing Our Funds 

Make-A-Wish Georgia finances its endeavors through corporate sponsorships, special events, foundation grants and individual contributions. Make-A-Wish Georgia does not solicit funds by telephone and receives no federal or state funding. As a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, all contributions are deductible to the extent permitted by law. The chapter’s financial statements are audited locally by CliftonLarsonAllen LLP. 

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 Georgia spent 70% of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses. Only 8% of every dollar was spent on management and general costs and 21% was allocated to fundraising. For full financial details, please review our most recent audited financial statement FY19 Audited Financial Statement, annual impact report  FY19 Annual Impact Report, or our latest 990

We are proud to be a BBB Georgia Accredited Charity Seal Holder, having met all 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability.
