Program 1

THE MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION OF CENTRAL NEW YORK CREATES LIFE-CHANGING WISHES FOR CHILDREN WITH CRITICAL ILLNESSES. THE FOUNDATION GRANTED 34 WISHES, SERVING 131 PEOPLE, DURING THE FISCAL YEAR ENDED AUGUST 31, 2020. THE TOTAL COST OF WISHES GRANTED FOR THE FISCAL YEAR WAS $404,931. OF THIS AMOUNT, $155,489 WAS CONTRIBUTED BY VARIOUS VENDERS WHO PROVIDED IN-KIND CONTRIBUTIONS SUCH AS TRAVEL AND TRAVEL SERVICES, TRANSPORTATION, LODGING, AND OTHER SERVICES AND USE OF FACILITIES TO COMPLETE A CHILD'S WISH. FOR FINANCIAL STATEMENT PURPOSES, THESE AMOUNTS ARE INCLUDED AS CONTRIBUTION REVENUE AND GRANTED WISH EXPENSE. FOR FORM 990, HOWEVER, THE IRS REQUIRES THE $155,489 OF CONTRIBUTED SERVICES AND USE OF FACILITIES TO BE EXCLUDED FROM BOTH REVENUE AND EXPENSE.DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC THAT BEGAN IN MARCH 2020, MAKE-A-WISH AMERICA ISSUED INSTRUCTIONS TO PAUSE TRAVEL AND LARGE GATHERING WISHES UNTIL DEEMED MEDICALLY SAFE FOR OUR VULNERABLE POPULATION AND THEIR FAMILIES. THE FOUNDATION CONTINUES TO EVALUATE ALL EXPENSES AND FUNDRAISING EFFORT IN LIGHT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. FROM AN OPERATIONAL PERSPECTIVE, THE FOUNDATION'S OFFICE CLOSED AND TRANSITIONED THE STAFF TO WORK FROM HOME DURING THE HEIGHT OF THE PANDEMIC. TO PREVENT ANY LAYOFFS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION OF CENTRAL NEW YORK APPLIED FOR A PPP LOAN TO HELP COVER PAYROLL AND PAYROLL BENEFIT EXPENSES. THE FOUNDATION RECEIVED A $115,882 LOAN IN APRIL 2020. WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF THIS LOAN, THE FOUNDATION DID NOT LAY OFF ANY EMPLOYEES AS OF FISCAL YEAR-END, AUGUST 31, 2020.
