Reno Car Donation Benefits Nevada Make-A-Wish Kids

Donate Your Car In Reno, Nevada

Wheels For Wishes is a vehicle donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada. Your unwanted car, truck, boat, motorcycle, or RV can be turned into a wish for kids in Reno and all over northern Nevada and northeastern California when you donate it! You might not think your vehicle can make much of a difference, but to a Reno child, it could mean the world! 


Your generous car donations make wishes like Ayla's wish to go to Disneyland come true!

Not only is car donation a great way to help someone in your community, it’s also a convenient alternative to selling or trading in your vehicle. Plus, we are able to accept almost all vehicles regardless of whether they run or not. When you donate your vehicle through Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada, you can feel great knowing that it will help Make-A-Wish bring hope, strength, and joy to children right in your community.

Our 100% Tax Deductible Program Gives You The Most For Your Nevada Car Donation:

  • Fast, free pick-up or towing of all vehicles, running or not, in Reno, Sacramento, and nearly anywhere else in northeastern California and northern Nevada.
  • The maximum possible tax deduction for your charity vehicle donation. Unlike many others, our car donation program is a fully registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization under the IRS code.
  • Professional service that makes the donation process simple and easy.
  • The knowledge that your vehicle will help a Reno child.

You provide wishes with your car donations. 5 year old Maren's wish to swim with mermaids in Hawaii was made possible through the funding that your car donations provide!

Your Reno, NV Car Donations Have Helped Make-A-Wish Grant Over 11,682 Wishes Nationwide

Your car donation makes a big impact on the lives of Make-A-Wish kids. You can help us further our mission to make sure every child, no matter what condition they are in, deserves a happy and fulfilling childhood. You provide that with your car donation!
