FY18 Total Wishes Granted

Wish Assists are wish children who live elsewhere, but whose wishes come true in Southern Nevada. For the fourth consecutive year, we increased wishes granted, this year by 22% over FY17.


FY18 Average Wish Cost

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.


FY18 Revenues vs. Expenses

FY18 saw an 18% growth in revenue over last fiscal year, our fourth 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 for in-kind rent "expense" associated with this donated office space (no FY18 revenue to offset).


FY18 Functional Expense Allocation

Though we prefer to celebrate our success with the above measures, we spend 77% of all funds raised on our programs. Non-DWE Program expenses include those for volunteer recruitment, training, and retention as well as our medical outreach programs to find our eligible children and keep our referral sources engaged.
