Managing Our Funds

Michigan wishes are made possible through corporate sponsorships, special events, foundation grants and individual contributions. However, we do not solicit funds by telephone. As a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, all contributions are deductible to the extent permitted by law. Our financial statements are audited by CliftonLarsonAllen LLP. 

At Make-A-Wish, we take our responsibility for the monies donated to our cause very seriously. Over the last five years Make-A-Wish Michigan, on average, has spent 76.6% of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses, 6.5% of every dollar was spent on management and general costs and 16.9% was allocated to fundraising. For full financial details please review our most recent audited financial statements.
