Gift Levels and Recognition

Make-A-Wish® has several recognition programs that help raise the funds needed for wishes, administration costs and the endowment. Wishmaker® and Wishpartner contributions fund wish granting expenses and are not used for administration purposes. Donations can also be unrestricted, in which case Make-A-Wish will use the contribution where it is most needed. Following is additional information on each of these programs.

Wishmaker®

Wishmaker® is a person, foundation or corporation that contributes a minimum of $4,400 -- enough to completely fund one wish. The Wishmaker amount, $4,400, is based on the cost of our most popular wish, a one-week trip to the Walt Disney World® Resort for a family of four. 100% of these funds are dedicated toward wish expenses.

Recognition 

Wishmakers receive full details of the wish they underwrite and are listed in our newsletter, annual report and web site. Wishmakers also receive a Wishmaker plaque designed by one of our wish children.

Wishpartner

Wishpartners are individuals, companies, schools or organizations that contribute to part of the cost of a wish. A minimum donation of $500 is required to become a Wishpartner. These contributions are then pooled with those of other Wishpartners until they reach $4,400, enough to completely fund a wish. Wishpartners also receive a complete description of the wish they have helped sponsor.

Recognition 
A personal thank-you letter acknowledges every contribution to Make-A-Wish. Wishpartners are presented with a certificate designed by one of our wish children. In addition, at present, all donations of $500 or more are listed on our website donor list and in our annual report.
