Donate Your Car In Los Angeles; Benefiting Make-A-Wish Kids

Wheels For Wishes is a vehicle donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish® Greater Los Angeles. Our charity car donation program helps turn cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, and even boats in to wishes for children in the Los Angeles area and all over California.


We work our magic to make sure that a child's wishes come true, but we also make donating a car extremely easy for you as well. We'll take care of the all the work! Car donation is an easy and smart alternative to selling or trading in your vehicle. Your vehicle will benefit a child right here in Los Angeles and put a smile on a child's face.

Your Car Donation Grants Wishes For Make-A-Wish Los Angeles

Just like every child, every car donation matters, and we make sure it does. The Wheels for Wishes organization represents a powerful way to improve the lives of the children of Los Angeles. You have an opportunity to be a part of turning wishes into reality. Since 2010, Wheels For Wishes has already donated more than $114 million, to Make-A-Wish chapters from car donors like you.


Although you benefit from the convenience of an effortless contribution and a car donation tax deduction, there is nothing about this process that is more gratifying than the satisfaction of knowing you made a difference in the lives of local children with critical illnesses.

Three Easy Steps To Donate A Vehicle To Benefit California Kids

We make the process as easy as possible whether donating on-line or by phone.

  • Start by giving us a call at 1-855-278-9474 or filling out our easy vehicle donation form. Our experienced vehicle donation representatives are available any time to help you with the donation process and answer any questions you might have.
  • Next, we'll contact you within 24 hours of the next business day to arrange for your vehicle pick up! We tow any vehicle, anywhere in Los Angeles, at no cost to you.
  • Finally, we'll mail out your tax deductible receipt. Save this and deduct it from your taxes at the end of the year. Any donations we receive on-line before 11:59 p.m. Dec. 31 count for that tax year, so there's never been a better time than now to donate a car.

Instilling a sense of value and happiness in these children's lives is why we do what we do. It is through the efforts of people who care that we are enabled to fulfill the wishes of children through happy, enjoyable experiences. You donate a car and we will help turn it into wishes. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of Los Angeles kids, one car donation at a time.
