You Get A Lot Back When You Donate A North Carolina Vehicle!

  1. If you aren’t happy with your main car, you can donate it and use your 100 percent tax deductible receipt on your 1098-c form during tax season for a great tax deduction to use on the down payment of your new ride!
  2. Free towing anywhere in North Carolina.
  3. Eastern North Carolina has everything from beautiful Atlantic beaches to classic college towns. If you have been thinking about upgrading to a vehicle that fits your east North Carolina needs like a boat that can fit your friends and a trailer to pull it, or a car with racks to fit all your beach gear, Wheels For Wishes can help get you there!
  4. If you're a college student in Eastern North Carolina, registering your car for parking and dealing with crowded parking lots can be overwhelming when dealing with regular school work. Ditch the car through college and get a great tax break for donating your car.
  5. Plus, Wheels For Wishes offers, even more, the incentive with free pick up and towing. Of course, your donation is also doing some very important work by helping local kids live their dreams!

We Tow You For Free Anywhere In Eastern North Carolina

Eastern North Carolina is full of popular college towns with great public transportation and nowhere to park on game day, especially when it is Duke versus UNC. In cities like this, it can be faster and easier to just let go of your car and take alternative transportation. Ditch the hassle of parking through college! Wheels For Wishes will use the car for good, and you can use your tax return to pay for any other transportation you may need!

If your vehicle doesn’t have the best gas mileage, you will save a lot of money in the long run by upgrading to a more fuel-efficient vehicle. You can use your great Wheels For Wishes tax deduction for the first down payment!

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 June 2024, based on the average cost of a wish, donors like you have helped Wheels for Wishes to grant more than 13,672 wishes and counting.
