Pennsylvania- Fall LeavesOur car donation program Wheels For Wishes benefits Make-A-Wish Northeast New York, which grants wishes for children facing critical illnesses. A car donation is fast and convenient, but it’s also a great way to support Make-A-Wish. By donating your car, you help further the Wheels For Wishes mission of ensuring that all kids, regardless of their health, have a chance at a happy and fulfilling childhood.

If you have an unwanted car, boat, RV, motorcycle, fleet vehicle, trailer or Jet Ski, you can donate it to Wheels For Wishes. We can accept vehicles regardless of the make, model, or condition. In most cases, your vehicle doesn’t even need to run in order for us to accept it. Choosing donation makes it incredibly easy to get rid of just about any vehicle.

Your donation to Make-A-Wish Northeast New York directly helps us to grant the wishes of local children with critical illnesses, like 9-year-old Victoria (Tori) who is battling a rare form of bone cancer. Tori has a BIG imagination and a taste for adventure! When she decided on her wish to visit Hawaii – it was all about the experiences she could have at the beach and in the water.

Because Wheels For Wishes is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, donors enjoy a great tax deduction for their car donations. After your car is picked up, you will receive a tax receipt that you can use to claim a deduction on next year’s taxes. A car donation tax deduction is a great way to lower your taxable income for the year!

In addition to the ease of donating a car, you will also receive free towing from anywhere in northeast New York. This part of the state is big and diverse, but you can rest easy knowing that your donation will be towed for free from any location, no matter where it is.

We even tow cars from as far north as the Plattsburgh area. No matter where you are in northeastern New York, you can take advantage of a car donation to Wheels For Wishes.

Our Mission

Wheels For Wishes believes that every child, no matter his or her health, deserves a chance to have a happy and fulfilling childhood. By donating your vehicle, we are able to raise funds to support Make-A-Wish chapters in locations throughout the country, helping grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. A wish is an opportunity for a child to focus on something other than their medical routines, and be a kid again.


As of October 2019, based on the average cost of a wish, donors like you have helped Wheels for Wishes contribute to grant more than 9,000 wishes and counting.
