Managing Our Funds
Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana 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 2018 audit results, Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana spent 93 cents of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses. Only 7 cents of every dollar was spent on administration and fundraising costs. For full financial details please review our most recent 990 form and FY19 Audited Financial Statement.
We are proud to be a BBB Accredited Charity Seal Holder, having met all 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability and received a 4 star rating from Charity Navigator.
