Thank You Letters

Make-A-Wish® America

August 14, 2018 

Dear Loren: 

I am writing today to thank you for your organization’s incredible support of Make-A-Wish. To date, the Wheels for Wishes program has generated over $53 million for our enterprise, a financial milestone that translates into thousands of life-changing wishes for children across the United States.

I also want to extend my gratitude to your current board members, Matt Rosenberg, Anne Snow, Lee Orwig and Craig Siiro. Having worked with boards of directors for the majority of my career, I know that it is the tireless work and dedication of these volunteer leaders that makes all the difference for our organizations.

Finally, I would like to thank National Fundraising Management and its owners, Bill Bigley and Randy Heiligman. I had the privilege of touring their facility and was very impressed with their operation. They have become the gold standard in how to run a successful car donation program and I know they have been extremely instrumental in the success of Wheels for Wishes.  

We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the Car Donation Foundation and Wheels for Wishes program and look forward to granting even more wishes thanks to your ongoing support.


In Partnership,


David Williams
