Managing Our Funds
Make-A-Wish Mississippi 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 Mississippi spent 71% of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses. Only 22% of every dollar was spent on management and general costs and 7% 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 Mississippi Accredited Charity Seal Holder, having met all 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability.
