YARMOUTH, ME – January 1, 2013 - Make-A-Wish® Maine has awarded Tyler Technologies with their Community Spirit Award.


This annual award is bestowed upon organizations or individuals outside of Make-A-Wish that make significant contributions to their cause over a period of time.


Tyler Technologies and its generous employees have supported Make-A-Wish through a myriad of ways. From event sponsorship and attendance to fundraisers created by employees, they have made a significant impact on the local non-profit’s success in granting wishes.


“We are happy to formally recognize the people of Tyler Technologies for the support they have given us over years,” said Tom Peaco, Executive Director at Make-A-Wish Maine. “It is clear that this is a company who embraces our mission and strives to help their local community as much as possible. We are grateful for this partnership.”


In total, Tyler Tech and its employees have donated over $20,000 to Make-A-Wish Maine.





Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. The Maine Chapter of Make-A-Wish opened in 1992. As of Sept. 2012, we have granted over 1080 wishes. This coming year, the organization expects to grant the greatest wish of over 75 seriously ill Maine children, which is an average of one wish every five days. The average cost of a wish is $6,000. All money raised in Maine stays in Maine. Of the money donated, 77% goes towards program expenses (granting wishes), which is 12% more than the minimum required of non-profits by the Better Business Bureau. All wish expenses are fully covered by Make-A-Wish. Make-A-Wish Maine is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and all contributions are tax deductible. The Maine chapter has over 200 volunteers statewide, and a staff of six. Our office is located at 477 Congress Street, Suite M1, in Portland.
