Church in Durham, North CarolinaIf you have ever wanted to grant wishes for a local child in your community, you’re in luck. Not only are you able to grant wishes for a Durham child, but you can also get a great tax deduction at the same time, and all you need is a vehicle to donate. Wheels For Wishes is a car donation program that benefits Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina and turns cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, and in most cases, even boats into wishes for children in the Durham area.  Not only Durham, but children all over Eastern North Carolina, including Chapel Hill, Hillsborough, Roxboro, Wake Forest, and more. Wishes are being granted all over Eastern North Carolina, and all you need to do is give us one quick call. You can leave the rest to us!

Our 100% Tax Deductible Program Offers You The Most For Your Donation:

  • Free pick-up and towing of your automobile. We’ll pick up your vehicle anywhere in Eastern North Carolina, including Raleigh.

  • A convenient alternative to selling or trading in your car.

You Are Helping To Grant Wishes For A Durham Child

Child In CarWhen you donate a car, proceeds from the vehicle donation go to Wheels For Wishes, a tax-exempt charity under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code, benefiting Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina. With your help, a Durham child could experience their wildest wishes coming true. Since Make-A-Wish “Wish Kids” are typically unable to enjoy all that Durham has to offer on a regular basis, we work hard to ensure that Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina is able to grant the wishes of Durham children.

Whether a Durham child wishes to enjoy bird-watching at Eno River State Park, or spend a weekend camping at Lake Michie, your generous donation will help to grant wishes for kids in the community you live in. Local children might also love a day at the Museum of Life and Science, while other kids might just want to see their favorite team play at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Cheering on their hometown team may be just what a child needs to feel hope, strength, and joy once again. Whatever a child wishes for, your car donation can help make it happen.

You can make sure that a child in your very own state will benefit from your car donation, but it is up to you to make sure that it happens, and it only takes three easy steps.
