You may not think that your unwanted vehicle has the power to affect someone’s life, but that vehicle makes a huge impact for the ‘wish’ kids of Make-A-Wish.

We Accept All Kinds Of Iowa Vehicles!

Wheels For Wishes turns all kinds of vehicles into funding for Make-A-Wish:

  • Cars
  • Trucks
  • Motorcycles
  • RV’s
  • SUV’s
  • Boats
  • Trailers
  • And much more!

The Impact Of Wheels For Wishes

Since 2010, Wheels For Wishes has donated over $68 million to Make-A-Wish chapters all over the U.S. and we’re not stopping there!

Your compassion provides children with hope when they need it most, strength to face lives toughest challenges and joy when they experience their magical wish! On behalf of Make-A-Wish® Iowa and the children we proudly serve, thanks for making wishes come true.

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.

$68,489,655

As of January 2020, based on the average cost of a wish, donors like you have helped Wheels for Wishes contribute to grant more than 9,377 wishes and counting.
