Iowa fieldWhen you donate your car to Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish Iowa, you can help kids to just feel like kids again when they are living with critical illnesses. You may not think that your unwanted vehicle has the power to affect someone’s life, but that car, truck, SUV, boat, Jet Ski or motorcycle that you don’t want anymore can do more than you thought possible.

If you aren’t sure whether you should sell, fix or donate your unwanted vehicle, Wheels For Wishes can help.  We understand the hassle of haggling over price, posting ads and how expensive it can be to fix a vehicle—often not even worth it. Yet, we also understand the desire to get some value back from your vehicle. That is why Wheels For Wishes takes care of everything for you in a hassle-free process all while getting you value as well.

Your generosity ensures that our mission continues to grant the wishes of Iowa children with critical illnesses. 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.


As of October 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.
