Join The Legacy of Wishes Society
A planned gift does not impact your spendable income, and in fact, actually enables you to make a large gift.
To see what a group of people dedicated to making each child's wish an experience of a lifetime can do, it really affected me and my family. I'm very glad to be able to make this kind of gift and proud to support Make-A-Wish Arizona long term. Just take action. It's an easy gift to make." -Legacy of Wishes Society member
When our friend's child received a wish, seeing the excitement and smiles on that child was very impactful. Going out and living life helped my husband escape his illness and become more than his diagnosis. I believe that is what motivated him to make a gift to Make-A-Wish Arizona - to help kids escape the realities of their illnesses, like he did, and find joy." -Legacy of Wishes Society member
