Kids in San FranciscoForget about paying for car insurance on a vehicle that hardly gets used, and instead donate your car to enjoy free pick-up or towing of an unwanted vehicle, plus free disposal of a vehicle that no longer runs. Doesn’t that sound better than keeping a vehicle that takes up space in your driveway? With so many sources of public transportation in the San Francisco area, donate your unwanted vehicle and hop on board to San Francisco’s green movement!

Since 2010, Wheels For Wishes has raised over $62 million for local chapters of Make-A-Wish from the generous donations of people like you. Donate your unwanted vehicle today and help to grant wishes for kids throughout the Bay area.

The Greater Bay area has legendary alternative transportation. You can contribute to the green movement in the Bay area by donating any unwanted vehicle you may have to Wheels For Wishes. If you are still unsure about the great bike paths, trains, cable cars and perfect weather in the bay area, Wheels For Wishes can help motivate you to move on from your vehicle!

The car donation incentive starts with a 100 percent tax deductible receipt to use when filing taxes on your 1098-c form. It gets even better when Wheels For Wishes tows away your car for free. Plus, with car donation, you don’t have to worry about your vehicle taking up your precious space anymore. Finally, you are helping to make dreams come true for local kids with critical illnesses!

Public transportation is great everywhere in the south greater bay area whether you are in Fremont or the surrounding cities. Next time you can’t find reasonable parking at a San Jose Sharks of Earthquakes game, just remember there is a far more hassle-free way to get there! You can easily pay for all your public transportation using the tax deduction from your Wheels For Wishes car donation.

It doesn’t matter if you live in Mountain View, Santa Clara, Daly City, Fairfield, Sunnyvale, Hayward or surrounding areas.

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 September 2018, based on the average cost of a wish, donors like you have helped Wheels for Wishes contribute to grant more than 6,000 wishes and counting.
