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.

Please let us know if you’ve named the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Mississippi in your estate.


We are pleased to share the Gift Illustrator tool with you. You can use this tool to help determine which type of planned gift will best meet your financial needs, while making a significant gift to support our future wish kids. (Please contact your tax advisor to discuss your specific circumstances.)

  • Chi Omega Chi Delta Millsaps held a crawfish festival to benefit Make-A-Wish Mississippi. The event was a major success! Chris Gill was the amazing entertainment of the afternoon.

These funds will help grant wishes for local children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. “Since the start of our alliance in 2001, Chi Omega Fraternity has raised over $19 million for Make-A-Wish and volunteered over one million hours. Chi Omega is honored to partner with Make-A-Wish and help grant the wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions,” said Courtney Thurtell, President.
