Get The Most Good For Your Vehicle Donation, Our 100% Tax Deductible Program Offers:

  • Free pick-up and towing of all vehicles, running or not, anywhere in New Jersey including Newark.
  • Get the maximum possible tax deduction for your charity vehicle donation. Unlike many others, we are a fully registered IRS 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization.
  • Our professional service makes the vehicle donation process simple and easy.
  • The knowledge that your vehicle will help a Paterson child.

Paterson and the surrounding area are full of exciting possibilities. Children with critical illnesses, however, often miss out on the opportunity to enjoy these activities. Through a partnership with Make-A-Wish Foundation, Wheels for Wishes turns unused and unwanted vehicles into magic carpets, granting children’s wishes for adventures of a lifetime.

Like everyone, children served by Make-A-Wish® have hopes, dreams, and interests. Some of them may wish to learn more about trains and submarines by visiting local museums. One local historic district in Paterson is the Great Falls/S.U.M. National Historic Landmark, commemorating early manufacturing mills in the United States. This landmark has a three-tiered raceway system originally developed by Alexander Hamilton, a 77-foot tall waterfall, and mills dating back to the 1700s. Other children might wish for a single day to enjoy the magic of a children’s arcade and play center the way many of their friends do. Perhaps a child simply wishes to spend time in nature, enjoying waterfalls and walking trails that many of us take for granted. Car donations make all of this happen.

Get way more than just a tax deduction

Benefits of donating a car to charity go far beyond the tax deduction. When you donate your car to make a child’s wish come true, you play an important part in improving community life. Nothing brings pleasure and hope to a community like the smile of a child. The joy of an unexpected adventure stays with a youngster for a lifetime, and when that youngster has a critical illness​, the hope and strength this kindness brings bolsters them even more.

Of course, the benefit of a tax deduction due to your car donation helps you as well. Wheels for Wishes will provide you with the appropriate tax forms when your vehicle is picked up for donation. Just think how happy you will be when that extra car moves from its permanent place in the drive.
