About Our Charity

mother and daughter in a donated car Car Donation Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established to benefit charities throughout the United States. Car Donation Foundation operates car donation programs that benefit a variety of important causes including children’s charities and hospitals, and veterans programs. Car Donation Foundation also operates as Wheels For Wishes, Wheels For Wishes and Wellness, and Vehicles For Veterans.

Car Donation Foundation (dba Wheels For Wishes) benefits Make-A-Wish chapters in various locations throughout the United States, helping grant wishes for children in their local communities who have been diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. Since our founding in 2009, Wheels For Wishes has donated over 37 million dollars to participating Make-A-Wish chapters, helping make thousands of wishes come true.

Granting a child’s wish is a special and rewarding process. A wish is an opportunity for children to take a break from their medical routines and live their dreams. A wish lifts their spirits and helps them fight harder. Wheels For Wishes makes a significant impact on a child’s life by making donations to participating Make-A-Wish chapters. Donating your car to Wheels For Wishes to benefit your local Make-A-Wish chapter can help make a wish kid’s dream become a reality.

You can donate cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, and even boats. Our vehicle donation program lets you:

  • Receive a charitable tax deduction
  • Eliminate the hassle of selling your car
  • Contribute to the green movement by recycling your car
  • Donate almost any vehicle regardless of whether it is running or not
  • Receive fast, free pick-up and towing of your donated vehicle
  • Help give a child in your community a wish to look forward to

Depending on where you live, you can donate a car to benefit your local chapter of Make-A-Wish. The vehicles we receive are either auctioned to new owners or recycled, and the proceeds from their sale stay local, benefiting your local Make-A-Wish chapter.

Donating a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes is an easy way to show your love and support to children in your community. We are proud to offer such a service.
