Managing Funds

Make-A-Wish® Michigan takes very seriously our responsibility to steward supporter contributions wisely. Our fundraising efforts, fiscal practices, and business operations all are designed to support a single purpose: to grant wishes that change lives.

Since its inception in 1984, Make-A-Wish Michigan has brought joy into the lives of thousands of people in our Michigan community through its important wish-granting mission, granting magical wishes to more than 8,000 children battling life-threatening medical conditions.

More than 80 cents of every dollar spent goes directly to program services – wish granting. This is a high industry standard we continue to be proud of year to year.

  • Nancy with Team Alex is our #WAMRiderOfTheWeek. This will be her seventh-year riding in WAM. As a pediatric cardiologist at Beaumont, Nancy has had many opportunities to refer patients to Make-A-Wish® Michigan and they are never far from her thoughts while she’s riding. “It is such an honor to be able to nominate a child for a wish. I get to hear their dreams and watch them come alive. To be able to help grant wishes for them by raising money and awareness has been priceless. When I am riding and it is raining buckets with lightening and gusting winds, the familiar faces of my patients and what they go through really does enter my thoughts.” When it comes to training for the full 300-mile route, Nancy has the following advice, “It is all about "saddle time". Your legs will usually "show up" but it is the tush that gives out first. Don't sweat the miles, put in the time.” Wondering what has kept her motivated after six years of participating in Wish-A-Mile? Nancy stated, “it is the inspiration of the kids that kept pushing and pushing me. Team Alex just made it such an amazing experience. You truly become family with the other riders and I have formed lasting friendships. Alex's legacy was with me through my first year of training, the ride, and still is today.” To register for WAM or to donate visit #WAM30
