A Special Wish Foundation is classified as a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization. This means that all the contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS. Monetary gifts are not the only important way to donate to ASW. We also welcome in-kind donations and planned-giving, as well as volunteering your time.

Giving begins with YOU!

"No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted."    -Aesop

Ways to Give

Individual Giving

Individual donations are ASW's largest single source of funding. No matter how big or small your donation, your financial support benefits wish-granting activities. Individuals may also sponsor or give in-kind donations. For in-kind donations, please call our offices at 614-258-3186 or 800-486-9474.

Monetary Donation Frequency:

  • One Time
  • Monthly
  • Annual

Corporate Giving

Business and community organizations can support ASW though sponsorship in the form of a monetary donation or in-kind donation. Corporations can also contribute in the forms of matching gifts, fundraising matches, dollars for doers, volunteer support programs, automatic payroll deduction, internal employee fundraising, and annual giving.

Corporate Giving Categories:

  • Monetary Donation
  • Sponsorship (can be monetary or alternative support)
  • In-Kind Donation (goods, services, and/or people)

Planned Giving

Planned giving is the act of making a commitment to a charitable organization a major gift over time or at death as part of a donor's overall financial and estate planning.

We encourage donors to consider talking with their financial planner or other financial professionals about arranging a planned gift to ASW.

For more information on arranging a planned gift, please contact us at 614-258-3186 or 800-486-9474.
