Why Would You Donate A Vehicle In The Mid-Atlantic Area?

You make wishes come true every day for your D.C. area car donation.

Selling, trading or storing your unwanted vehicle can be a huge hassle. Haggling with potential buyers and posting ads takes up your valuable time and money. Donating your vehicle to Wheels For Wishes saves you space and the cost of repairs and ads. Plus, you get a great tax deduction when you donate!

Every donation comes with a 100 percent tax-deductible receipt. You can use that while filing taxes on your taxes next year! The best part is that your donation will help make dreams come true for Mid-Atlantic kids with critical illnesses.

We Offer Free Towing Anywhere In The Washington D.C. Area

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.
