Wish Book 2019


The Wish Book is a soft-cover, printed book that is mailed to our donor community every November. Donors may use their donor-advised fund to make grant requests to fulfill the "wishes" on a rolling basis between November and March. In 2019, our donors made donations totaling $317,000 to 75 Wish Book organizations.
