Planned Giving

Make-A-Wish Oregon is doing more than just granting the wishes of today’s critically ill children. It is preparing to bring joy to future generations when they need it most.

You can be a part of this effort by including the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oregon in your estate plans. A planned gift, such as a bequest in your will or trust, life insurance designations or stock donations, will ensure the continuation of our work.

A deferred gift can also help you balance your financial goals and your charity interests – all while possibly achieving significant tax benefits.

By naming the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oregon as a beneficiary, you will leave a legacy that brings hope, strength and joy to local children. If you decide to include Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oregon as a beneficiary of your estate, please share the following language with your attorney:

I give the sum of $___ or ___% to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oregon, 2000 SW 1st Ave, Suite 410, Portland, OR 97201 (Tax ID: 82-0385049) to be used or disposed of as the Board of Directors deems appropriate in its sole discretion.

Donating Appreciated Stock

Make a bigger impact by donating long-term appreciated securities, including stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to Make-A-Wish Oregon. You receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities, and at the same time, you may avoid capital gains taxes on appreciated stock.
