Since our founding in 2010, we have donated more than $108 million to local chapters of Make-A-Wish throughout the country. This has helped Make-A-Wish grant more than 13,104 wishes to local kids. Our mission is to ensure that more kids who have serious medical conditions can have a chance at a happy and fulfilling childhood. You help make that possible by donating your car!

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 May 2023, based on the average cost of a wish, donors like you have helped Wheels for Wishes to grant more than 13,104 wishes and counting.
