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 the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Virginia in your estate.

We are pleased to share the Gift Illustrator tool with you. You can use this tool to help determine which type of planned gift will best meet your financial needs, while making a significant gift to support our future wish kids.
