Honor Someone Special With a Gift in Their Name
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Make-A-Wish, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor them or celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday, while supporting our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
An Example of How It Works
When John's mother passed away, he knew he wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. He remembered that during her lifetime she was always praising Make-A-Wish for its tireless efforts to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses.
John decided to make a gift to Make-A-Wish in his mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will his mother's legacy live on at Make-A-Wish thanks to the gift, but John also qualified for a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
