Planned Giving

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 Southern Nevada in your estate.


If you are aged 60 or older and make a $10,000 minimum donation through a charitable gift annuity you receive an income for life – and also for a spouse’s lifetime – and obtain a charitable income-tax deduction.

Benefits Include:

  • Qualifying for a federal-income tax deduction
  • Annuitants will receive fixed annual income for life.
  • Possible reduction of capital-gains taxes on gifts of appreciated assets.
  • Possible reduction of probate costs and estate taxes.
  • Providing generous support to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Nevada


Great news for IRA owners who are aged 70 or older! You can transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southern Nevada. Charitable transfers can be made from IRA’s only.


A bequest is one of the most meaningful legacies you can leave with a lasting impact.

Bequest options to consider:

  • Specific bequest (stocks, life insurance, real estate)
  • Percentage bequest
  • Residual bequest

Adding a bequest to your will or living trust can be as simple as adding a single sentence. Here's our preferred bequest language; take this to your attorney to use as a starting point. Contact us if you have any questions!
