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 Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Greater Pennsylvania & West Virginia in your estate.

Adding a bequest to your will or living trust can be as simple as adding a single sentence.
