Our goal is to create unforgettable experiences for children and their families through our wish granting process. But we can’t do it alone. Every single donation helps to ensure that every child’s one true wish comes true.
By donating to Make-A-Wish® you help transform lives. You give children with critical illnesses a reason to hope for a brighter future. And most of all, you help make their life-changing wishes come true.
There are many ways to donate and support Make-A-Wish. These gift giving options can suit every donor. See below for more information.
By giving to Make-A-Wish as a monthly donor, you will help reduce administrative costs, and enable us to dedicate more of your monies directly to our wish granting mission. And, as a monthly donor, you’ll receive one tax receipt per year for your total, annual contribution.
WishGifts are gifts that represent the impact of a granted wish. With every WishGift you purchase, children facing critical illnesses are granted an opportunity to experience the transformational magic of their wish coming true.
When you make a gift of securities to Make-A-Wish Canada, you are helping to bring hope and joy to a child living with a critical illness. By donating publicly traded securities, you also receive double the benefits.
Donating appreciated stocks, mutual funds or stock options means you pay no tax on the capital gains and receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities based on the closing price on the day the securities have legally transferred to the Make-A-Wish Foundations’ investment account. It benefits you more than giving cash as it provides a substantial tax incentive.
By making a gift of securities, you become part of a dedicated community of individuals who support our mission to grant the wish of every eligible child.
