Make-A-Wish takes very seriously our responsibility to steward supporter contributions wisely. Our fundraising efforts, fiscal practices, and business operations all are designed to support a single purpose: to grant wishes that change lives.
Seventy-nine percent of the revenue Make-A-Wish receives is allotted to program services. This percentage well exceeds the 65% standard upheld by organizations that monitor the work of charities.
Make-A-Wish® Maine is proud of the way it manages and safeguards the generous contributions it receives from individual donors, corporations and other organizations. Also available for download is our most recent audit results, Annual Report or 990 form. We also thank our fiscal year 2015 donors for making our wishes possible.
We are proud that Make-A-Wish America is an accredited charity under the BBB Wise Giving Alliances's Standards for Charity Accountability. This national charity monitoring organization is affiliated with the Better Business Bureau and confirms whether a nonprofit's practices related to governance, fund raising, solicitations and informational materials, and expenses meet their criteria for fair and honest dealings and ethical practices.
