Your Gift Can Last Forever
An endowment gift to Make-A-Wish today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to an endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at Make-A-Wish. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.
An Example of How It Works
Longtime Make-A-Wish supporters Charlie and Susan have two goals: First, they want to make sure Make-A-Wish continues to receive support after they are gone. Second, they want to create a lasting legacy for Charlie’s parents.
Charlie and Susan make a $25,000 donation to Make-A-Wish, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of Charlie’s parents. Plus, Charlie and Susan qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
Gifts That Pay
Your payments depend on your age at the time of the donation. If you are younger than 60, we recommend that you learn more about your options and download this FREE guide Deferred Gift Annuities: Plan Now, Benefit Later.
