Donate Your Car In Springfield To Help Illinois Make-A-Wish Children

Donate Any Vehicle In Springfield To Make Wishes Happen For Make-A-Wish Illinois

Wheels For Wishes is a car donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish Illinois. When you donate your car, truck, motorcycle, SUV, motorhome, boat, or any other vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, the proceeds go to fund the wishes of children in Central Illinois and every corner of the state.


Our vehicle donation process is easy and eliminates the hassle of selling your vehicle. Let us do all of the work for you. No listing ads, phone calls at all hours, or showing your vehicle to strangers. Wheels For Wishes handles all of the hard work so you can relax and feel good. You would have never guessed helping local children was so easy! Best of all, Wheels For Wishes keeps your vehicle donation proceeds here in Illinois.

Our Car Donation Program Is The Easiest Around:

  • Get fast FREE pick-up and towing anywhere in the state, including East Saint Louis and Aurora. We'll even brave the traffic of Chicago.
  • You'll always deal with our professional service people. We've worked hard to make the vehicle donation process as easy as possible for you.
  • Unlike other programs, Wheels For Wishes is a fully registered IRS 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization. That means you get the maximum 100% tax deduction for your vehicle donation.
  • Best of all, we accept all vehicles donations! It doesn't matter to us whether they are running or not. We can turn any set of wheels into wishes for local kids.


Your car donation can be scheduled immediately by calling 1-855-278-9474. Our car donation representatives are available anytime, day or night, to assist with the vehicle donation process. There is also an easy online donation form to begin the vehicle donation process right away. Within one business day, our staff will contact you to arrange for your donation to be picked up.

We'll Pick Your Vehicle Up From Anywhere In Illinois For Free, Even If It Doesn't Run

We work hard to help kids all across Illinois. Even though you may not think much of your car, we think of it as an opportunity to grant a wish to a child in Illinois. By donating your car, you help Make-A-Wish Illinois bring hope, joy, and strength into the lives of central Illinois' "Wish Kids."

We will happily pick up your car, running or not, from anywhere in Illinois including Bloomington, Normal, Peoria, Champaign, Peru, LaSalle, Ottawa, Galesburg, Decatur, Morris, Amboy, Mendota, Moline, Geneseo or Kewanee.


Proceeds from your vehicle donation go to Wheels For Wishes, a tax-exempt charity under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code, benefiting Make-A-Wish Illinois. Your generous gift will help us grant the wishes of children in Illinois with critical illnesses between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 years old. You can help kids in Illinois experience hope, strength and joy. Please consider the good you could do if you donate your vehicle today.

If you have unanswered questions or would like more information, contact us at any time and our representatives will assist with your charitable donation.
