Managing Funds

Funding

Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee is committed to stretching every dollar received to affect as many wish kids as possible.

Make-A-Wish® Middle Tennessee is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization which is funded by donations from individuals, corporations, small businesses, foundations and community organizations. Companies and individuals also donate a variety of in-kind services and products that enable Make-A-Wish to make wishes come true. 

As responsible stewards of the funds we raise, we strive to keep our administrative and fundraising costs to a minimum so a vast majority of every dollar goes directly towards wish granting. 78% of all funds raised goes directly to wish granting. 

Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee works to ensure that every donated dollar is spent wisely, and efforts are made to maximize efficiency. We continue to find ways to do more with each dollar we receive and work to increase in-kind donations without compromising the quality of wishes we grant.
