Mission: The make-a-wish foundation of central & northern florida grants the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Programs: In fy2014 our chapter granted 280 wishes in the 54 counties that our chapter serves. Through the dedication of over 1000 volunteers and strong ties with individual and corporate donors our chapter is able to grant the most heartfelt wishes of our children. Total cost of wishes granted for the fiscal year were $2,133,792. Part of this amount was contributed by various vendors who provided in-kind contributions such as travel and travel services, transportation, lodging, and other services and use of facilities to complete a child's wish. For financial statement purposes, these amounts are included as contribution revenue and granted wish expense. For form 990, however, the irs requires these contributed services and use of facilities to be excluded from both revenue and expenses.
