Enjoy Great Benefits For Donating Your Car

Not only is donating a car to Wheels For Wishes incredibly easy, but it also comes with many benefits. Donating a car is a great way to:

  • Receive free towing of any vehicle even if it doesn’t run anymore. We accept most vehicles in any condition, giving you a great Girl with a dandelionoption for just about any vehicle you no longer want. Towing a car that doesn’t run can be expensive on your own. Donating it to Wheels For Wishes will get your unwanted vehicle off your hands for free.
  • Get the maximum possible tax deduction. Since we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, your donation to Wheels For Wishes is completely tax deductible.
  • Make room in your garage so you can upgrade to a newer vehicle. Trading in a car or trying to sell it to someone can be stressful, and it doesn’t always turn out the way you hope. When you donate your vehicle, you can count on a great experience.
  • Help a local charity. Wheels For Wishes uses the proceeds from your car donation to benefit Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties. Your car donation can impact children right in your own community!

If you have an unwanted car, donate it now instead of holding onto it another day. You’ll enjoy great benefits all while giving back to your community.
