Donate Your Car In East St. Louis To Benefit Make-A-Wish Illinois

Wheels For Wishes is the only car donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish Illinois. When you donate any vehicle (including cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, motorhomes, and boats) to Wheels For Wishes the proceeds from your donation help fund the wishes of kids in Southern Illinois and across the state.


Car donations like yours provide wishes for kids like 3 year old Bryce’s wish to have a pool.

Our easy vehicle donation process eliminates the hassle of selling your vehicle by doing all the hard work for you. There’s no need to put up an ad, take phone calls, or show your vehicle multiple times to all sorts of people. Wheels for Wishes handles everything for you. Help children in Southern Illinois, and in your own community.

Get The Most Back For Your Vehicle Donation:

  • We offer fast, free pick-up and towing for your donated vehicle anywhere in the state, even further than Aurora, Chicago, or Joliet.
  • Our professional service and easy vehicle donation process will make things easy.
  • Get the maximum possible charitable tax deduction for your vehicle. Unlike many other programs, we are a fully registered IRS 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization. That means it’s 100% tax deductible.
  • We accept all vehicle donations whether they are running or not. We're the vehicle donation experts, and make the most of every donation.

Your generous car donations provide wishes for kids like 4 year old Kate’s wish to go to Disney World.

Your East St. Louis Car Donation Makes A Big Difference For Make-A-Wish Illinois

We work hard to help children from all over Illinois. Even though you may not think much of your car, we think of it as an opportunity to grant a wish to a child in Illinois. By donating your car you help Make-A-Wish Illinois bring hope, joy, and strength into the lives of southern Illinois' "Wish Kids." We will happily pick up your car, running or not, just about anywhere in southern Illinois including Carbondale, Belleville, and Metropolis.

Since 2010, Wheels For Wishes has donated over $114 Million to Make-A-Wish chapters across the U.S. That is over 13,672 wishes just from your car donations!

Proceeds from your vehicle donation go to Wheels For Wishes, a tax-exempt charity under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code, benefiting Make-A-Wish Illinois. Your generous gift will help us grant the wishes of children in Illinois with critical illnesses between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 years old. You can help kids in Illinois experience hope, strength and joy. Please consider the good you could do if you donate a car today.
