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.

Planned gifts should be carefully considered in relation to your comprehensive financial and estate plans. We recommend that you consult your attorney or financial planner when considering a planned gift.

Planned giving is one way you can continue to bring hope, strength and joy to the lives of brave, deserving children. By including the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana in your estate plans, you can provide the resources to change the lives of children now and in the future.

We are here to help. Please contact us if you have any questions.

If you wish to add our Foundation within your bequest, please consider using the suggested language below.

Endowment Options

Laura's Wish Fund

As the inspiration to help make wishes come true forever, many years ago, a little girl named Laura taught us a lesson in giving.  As she was losing her battle with cancer, all she could think about, all she could talk about was making another child’s wish come true.  In her memory, we are creating Laura’s Wish Fund to make wishes come true forever.

In addition to Laura's Wish Fund, you could also choose to put your special gift into one of our other named endowments. For a list of other named endowments, please call 281-491-9474.

If your gift is a value of $125,000 or more, you could have your own named endowment which would grant one wish in your name each year forever.
