Managing Our Funds 

Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia 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 Greater Virginia spent 77.69% of every dollar on wish granting and related program expenses. Only 7.57% of every dollar was spent on management and general costs and 14.75% was allocated to fundraising. For full financial details please review our most recent FY19 Audited Financial Statements, FY19 Annual Report or our latest 990.
