With Your Help, Wishes Come True

Wheels For Wishes is a proud sponsor of the Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina Shine a Light—Grant a Wish Ball, but Wheels For Wishes also accepts car donations on behalf of Make-A-Wish. If you are unable to attend the 2014 Wish Ball event, consider car donation. An unwanted vehicle taking up space in your driveway or garage can be magically transformed into a wish for a local child. How great is that?

Donate a car, truck, boat, or motorcycle to Wheels For Wishes and be a part of the wish granting process. Each and every donation benefits Make-A-Wish and helps to grant wishes for local kids. Plus, donors receive a great tax deduction for their charitable contribution. Car donation provides some other great benefits as well.

  • Car donation is easy and hassle-free

  • Wheels For Wishes provides free pick-up or towing of donated vehicles, anywhere in Raleigh, Fayetteville, Wilmington, and Durham.

  • Car donation is green and eco-friendly

  • Wheels For Wishes takes care of all the details

Make a wish come true with a simple car donation. Call 1-877-431-9474 or make an online donation using our vehicle donation form.
