Planned Giving

A deferred gift can help you balance your financial goals and your charitable interests - all while possibly achieving significant tax benefits. A planned gift, such as a bequest in your will or trust, life insurance designations, or stock donation ensures your support for the children we serve well into the future. You'll do more than help grant wishes, you'll create a legacy that will impact our wish kids for years to come.

Please let us know if you’ve named the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Maine in your estate. Call 207-221-2306

Leave a Legacy of WishesI’m not wealthy. I don’t fly to Aspen to ski. My dresses aren’t designer. But my life has such bounty. A satisfying career. Fabulous friends.

I find I want to share this bounty in a meaningful and lasting way. So, I’ve created a legacy through my will with Make-A-Wish. Sick kids who need a reason to dream? There was never any question.

And what did I find? More bounty. Perfect.


Help grant wishes by naming us as a beneficiary of your estate. Consult your attorney and use this sample bequest language:


We are pleased to share the Gift Illustrator tool with you. You can use this tool to help determine which type of planned gift will best meet your financial needs, while making a significant gift to support our future wish kids. (Please contact your tax advisor to discuss your specific circumstances.)

Adding a bequest to your will or living trust can be as simple as adding a single sentence. Here's our preferred bequest language; take this to your attorney to use as a starting point. Contact us if you have any questions!
