Total Wishes FY19

Wish Assists are wish children who live elsewhere, but whose wishes come true in Southern Nevada. For the fifth consecutive year, we increased wishes granted, this year by 10% over FY18.


Average Wish Cost FY19

We rely on donated goods and services (“In-Kind”) to grant quality wishes affordably. Despite double-digit growth in wishes granted, we maintained our lower-than-national average cash cost with thanks to our incredible in-kind donors.


Total Revenues vs. Expenses FY19

FY19 saw a 17% growth in revenue over last fiscal year, our fifth consecutive year of double-digit growth.

Note that FY17 revenue includes $697,063.27 in Allegiant office in-kind (5-year lease recorded in 1 year per GAAP rules). FY18 expenses include $140,845 and FY19 expenses include $144,163 for in-kind rent "expense" associated with this donated office space (no revenue to offset).


Functional Expense Allocation FY19

Though we prefer to celebrate our success with the above measures, we spend 73% of all funds raised on our programs.
