Create a Legacy of Hope

Create a Legacy of Hope

Your support today makes it possible to create lasting, positive change in the lives of children facing life-threatening conditions.

When you plan a gift for Make-A-Wish International in your estate or financial plans, such as a bequest in your will or gifts of trust, stock or life insurance designations, it ensures your support for the children we serve well into the future. You will do more than help grant wishes, you will create a legacy that will impact our wish children for years to come.

To learn about giving strategies that allow you to leave a meaningful charitable gift, please contact our Development Manager.

Preferred Bequest Language

For US Residents/Donors
These gifts are simple, flexible, versatile, and have tax benefits if your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift's full value. Adding a bequest to your will or living trust can be as simple as adding a single sentence. Here's our preferred bequest language:
I give the sum of $___ or ___% to Make-A-Wish® International of, 1702 E. Highland Ave. Suite 305, Phoenix, AZ 85016 (tax id: 86-0726985), to be used or disposed of as its Board of Directors deems appropriate in its sole discretion.

For Donors Outside of the US
Please refer to national laws and requirements, as they may differ from USA tax policies.

Donate Stock

A gift of appreciated stock to the Make-A-Wish can benefit you in two ways:

  1. You receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities.
  2. Avoid capital gains taxes on appreciated stock. This will stretch your gift even further.

To receive the stock transfer details or to find out if giving stock suits your philanthropic goals, please contact our Development Manager.
