HOW CAN I HELP?
There are many ways to support Granted. You can make a contribution, volunteer, involve your workplace in a fundraiser, and remember Granted in your Planned Giving process. You may also provide goods or services that are needed.
All contributions to Granted are completely tax-deductible and can be made by mailing your donation to Granted, 4445 Commerce Street, Suite 108, Evansville, Indiana 47710 or clicking HERE for a secure online donation connection. “Hope Through Wishes” is a project that helps to fund wishes for children who are fighting life threatening or terminal illnesses. All monies designated to the “Hope Through Wishes” project are used solely for direct wish expenses, and with the average wish costing $6,000, donations are used to cover these expenses. Our mission is to create a memorable wish experience for both the child and family that is not clouded by financial concerns. As we focus on serving children in Southwestern Indiana, Southeastern Illinois, and Western Kentucky, you can rest assured that your support will directly impact Tri-State communities.
ORGANIZE A FUNDRAISER
A third-party event is any fundraising activity on Granted’s behalf, developed by a non-affiliated group or individual where Granted has no financial responsibility and little-to-no involvement. Although we actively encourage and greatly appreciate third-party fundraising, all such events must be approved by Granted in advance.
This is an important safeguard to preserving the integrity of Granted’s name and our commitment to raise the funds necessary to fulfill our mission of granting Wishes in a cost-efficient and effective manner. While we are happy to provide guidance for your event, we do not have the personnel to hand the organizational and administrative tasks associated with third-party events. Therefore, the event sponsor is responsible for all details of the event.
To learn more, please download our Third Party Fundraising Agreement Packet.
Only through the hard work and commitment of our volunteers is Granted able to continue granting more wishes to children with life threatening or terminal medical conditions. HERE is a list of volunteer opportunities available. Please contact the office at (812) 425-9474 if you would like to volunteer, or for more information.
Do you shop on Amazon? Sign up at AmazonSmile, and Amazon will donate to Granted (Wish Upon a Star) each time you shop. You can sign up HERE. Select Wish Upon A Star, Inc. in Evansville, Indiana as your recipient.
We have a Wish List on Amazon so you can support Granted by purchasing items that we need for the office, fundraisers, and sometimes for wishes that we are working on. Since we are a 501(c)(3), you can deduct the purchases you make. Check out our wish list HERE.
How would you like to help grant wishes to local children with life threatening or terminal illnesses – at no cost to you – while you do your weekly shopping? All you need to do is enroll in the SCHNUCKS e-scrip program and then present your card each time you shop at any Schnucks, and a portion of your total purchase will go to Granted to help fund wishes. We are currently enrolling people in the program through the Schnucks Power Registration system. To enroll in this program, call Granted at (812) 425-9474, or confidentially email your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org, and your personalized Schnucks e-scrip cards will be mailed directly to you, ready to use! You can also stop by the Service Desk at any Schnucks location and have them register you. Just tell them you wish to designate Granted as your recipient.
THANK YOU for your support!
