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.

$71,081,947

As of June 2020, based on the average cost of a wish, donors like you have helped Wheels for Wishes contribute to grant more than 9,632 wishes and counting.
