Grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses


The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central New York creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. During the fiscal year ended August 31, 2019, the foundation granted 55 wishes, serving 220 people. The total cost of wishes granted for the fiscal year was $599,077. Of this amount, $102,520 was contributed by various vendors who provided in-kind contributions such as travel and travel services, transportation, lodging, and other services and use of facilities to complete a child's wish. For financial statement purposes, these amounts are included as contribution revenue and granted wish expense. For the IRS Form 990, however, the IRS requires the $102,520 of contributed services and use of facilities to be excluded from both revenue and expense. The foundation currently has 297 volunteers.
