Bordered by two of the Great Lakes, Western New York is a great place to own a boat. If you bought a boat and don’t use it as much as you’d like, there’s a better option than just storing it away.

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 April 2021, based on the average cost of a wish, donors like you have helped Wheels for Wishes contribute to grant more than 10,959 wishes and counting.
