Managing Our Funds

Make-A-Wish Mid-South 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 the Mid-South spent 82% of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses. 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 Mid-South Accredited Charity Seal Holder, having met all 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. 

We invite you to view our Fiscal Year 2019 Annual Report to see the impact you’ve helped make in the last year. 

Our program service expense ratio for Fiscal Year 2019 is 82%. This ratio exceeds the standards set by both Make-A-Wish® America and the Better Business Bureau. 

Our fiscal year is September 1 through August 31.
