Your yard, garage, driveway or shed may have an unwanted vehicle taking up unnecessary space. That vehicle could be used to make dreams come true through Make-A-Wish if you donate it to Wheels For Wishes. You may have hope for a time that you will use it or fix it up, but Wheels For Wishes can give you great incentive to donate it!

First, we pick up your car for free. Second, you get some much-needed space cleared up on your property. Third, you get a maximum tax-deductible receipt to use on your taxes when filling out your 1098-c form. Of course, most importantly, your donation of any type of vehicle or trailer will help Make-A-Wish kids live their dreams.

Austin and surrounding cities like Round Rock are well-connected to public transportation. If you ever want to leave traffic and parking in your past, this area is the perfect place to do it! You can donate your unwanted car to Wheels For Wishes and leave the bad memories of city driving behind!

Laredo is a terrific area right on the border of Mexico in south Texas. Yet, traveling between Laredo and other Texas cities can be difficult if your car isn’t fuel-efficient. If you are looking to upgrade to a car with better gas mileage, you can use your tax deduction from your Wheels For Wishes donation to make the down payment!

Whether you are visiting The Alamo or on your way to a sold-out Spurs game, a great city like San Antonio has you covered. You don’t need to deal with the hassle of parking or driving in downtown traffic when you have the nice weather and public transportation of San Antonio. When you are ready to trade in your unwanted car for a horse, a bike or the bus, Wheels For Wishes will be ready to tow away your car for free and give you a great tax deduction!

Donating your unwanted vehicle of any kind makes a big impact for Make-A-Wish Central and South Texas kids! Donate now to make dreams come true!

We make it easy to donate a car and help local kids

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 September 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.
