Child with bubble

benefiting Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles. There’s very little that’s enjoyable about being stuck in traffic. But Los Angeles traffic has a well-earned reputation for being tough to navigate. The best way to deal with it is to stop driving and take advantage of public transportation.

Help children all over the greater Los Angeles area. Donate a car and you can join others in your community who have been donating their cars for children whose dream it is to have a magical wish experience. Please make a donation today that can help kids with critical illnesses to feel like kids again! Across the U.S., Wheels For Wishes has donated over $62 million to Make-A-Wish chapters because generous people like you share our mission!

If the legendary Los Angeles traffic is somehow not enough to motivate you to try alternative transportation, Wheels For Wishes may just have the kick you need to either upgrade to a more fuel-efficient vehicle or to cut driving out of your life!  

When you decide to make a donation to Wheels For Wishes, good things stack up for you! First, we tow away your vehicle for free. After that, you will notice all the free space on your property. Then, you will receive 100 percent tax-deductible receipt to utilize with your 1098-c form when filling out taxes. The most important impact of your donation, however, is the dream come true it will help provide for a local child!

Sand and ocean

The Los Angeles commute, whether you are in the city or a surrounding city like Pasadena or Glendale, presents a lot of issues. The traffic is terrible and the smog over Los Angeles is an unfortunate thing for which to be known. If your commute is too far to bike, consider taking advantage of public transportation or join a carpool. This will help reduce traffic and pollution at once! Meanwhile, it will also save you precious time. Whether that means donating your car altogether or upgrading to a hybrid for your carpool, your donation to Wheels For Wishes, and it’s great tax deduction, will help pay for future transportation.

Of course, Wheels For Wishes will pick up your car in Los Angeles, but did you know we will still come to you with free towing in the surrounding cities? Whether you live in Palmdale, Torrance, El Monte, Burbank, Inglewood, Downey or any of the areas in between, Wheels For Wishes will come to you for free towing anywhere in the greater Los Angeles area!

If you are on the outskirts like Santa Clarita or Lancaster, you may want to make a fuel-efficient change to save money on your long commute. Your Wheels For Wishes tax deduction makes a great down payment!

Long Beach has fantastic weather and a great local scene. You can help California go green by ditching your car altogether in order to enjoy the local weather and sights. Save yourself the pain of selling or trading, and donate it to benefit local kids!

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 September 2018, based on the average cost of a wish, donors like you have helped Wheels for Wishes contribute to grant more than 6,000 wishes and counting.
