Leave a legacy of Wishes for generations to come.
One of the most meaningful ways to support Wish Granters and ensure our wish programs to continue to grow, is to make a planned gift through a trust or will. Planned gifts guarantee the continued gift of a wish to those dealing with a non-age-related terminal or potentially terminal illness, and expanded programs for years to come.
Gifts can be made in the form of cash, real estate, or stocks, and can be provided through a will or trust, annuity, life insurance policy, or retirement fund.
A planned gift allows you to leave a lasting legacy of wishes in your or your family’s name, and provides financial benefits to you and your heirs.
To learn more about making a planned gift to Wish Granters, please contact us at [email protected].
A direct transfer from your IRA to Wish Granters is a thoughtful way to make a tax-wise gift.
If you are 72 1/2 years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit Wish Granters, and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours, without having to pay income taxes on the money. This popular gift option is commonly called an IRA charitable rollover, but is also referred to as a Qualified Charitable Distribution or QCD.

Vehicle Donation F.A.Q.
How do I make a donation?
Call the Idaho Youth Ranch Auto Center at 208-375-7965 or toll free 877-278-9664 for information on how to donate.
Does a vehicle need to be running to be eligible for donation?
No, your vehicle does not need to be running.
What paperwork is needed?
You need to have a clear title for the vehicle (in your name with no lien) and a form of identification.
Does the person donating get a receipt for the donation?
Yes, you will receive a receipt for your donation when all paperwork is complete.
What can a person who is donating claim as a deduction?
There are several options. Please call the Idaho Youth Ranch Auto Center at 208-375-7965 or 877-278-9664 to decide what is best for you.
Do I get an Idaho state tax credit?
Yes, there is an Idaho State tax credit for donating to a youth organization, and Idaho Youth Ranch is a qualified entity.
What does Wish Granters do with the donated vehicle?
Wish Granters partners with the Idaho Youth Ranch Auto Center to facilitate all vehicle donations. The IYR is a licensed Idaho automobile dealer and has a retail car lot in Boise. IYR retails the donated vehicles (as opposed to an out of state for-profit company that disposes of the cars at a wholesale auto auction), so all of the proceeds stay right here in Idaho! Wish Granters and IYR share the (after cost of sale) revenue from the retail sale.
Does the person donating have to be with the vehicle at the time of pickup? And who does the pickup?
No, nobody has to be with the vehicle. As long as it is accessible to pick up, IYR will arrange a time for pick up while you are at the office completing the donation paperwork.
How much money will Wish Granters receive for the donation?
The amount received by Wish Granters depends on how much the vehicle sells for. Once a vehicle is sold, Wish Granters and IYR share the (after cost of sale) revenue from the retail sale.
