Donate Your Car In Wisconsin To Help Make-A-Wish Kids

Wheels For Wishes is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit car donation program that benefits Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. Through our car donation program, we have given more than $113 million to local chapters of Make-A-Wish since 2010. We do this to help make sure that more kids can have a happy and fulfilling childhood, regardless of their health.

Make A Difference With Make-A-Wish Wisconsin

"A wish experience brings families back together, giving children new energy and resolve and restoring normalcy to their lives. On behalf of wish families, volunteers, the Board of Directors and Make-A-Wish Wisconsin staff, we thank YOU for your heartfelt commitment to the Make-A-Wish® mission."

Patti Gorsky, President & CEO of Make-A-Wish Wisconsin

The proceeds from your car donation help Make-A-Wish Wisconsin grant more wishes for local kids who are facing critical illnesses. You can help, and all it takes is a simple car donation. Each and every vehicle makes a difference, regardless of whether it's seen better days or it's simply last year's model.

In addition to cars, you can also donate your boat or RV. A lot of Wisconsin residents own boats and RVs due to all of the lakes and camping opportunities. In fact, Wisconsin has the fifth-highest number of registered boats in the country. Camping and boating are great, but if you're sick of storing and winterizing your vehicle every fall, there is a better way. You can donate your boat or RV to Wheels For Wishes and enjoy a great tax deduction instead of paying for storage or sacrificing space in your shed.

Anywhere In Wisconsin, Free Towing!

Your donated vehicle can be in just about any condition. Wheels For Wishes will even accept your car if it no longer runs.

No matter your reason for donating, you can receive free towing and a tax deduction for your Wisconsin car donation.

Car donation provides wishes for kids like 6 year old Brayden's wish to go on a cruise.

When you donate your unneeded vehicle, you create more space, get a tax deduction, avoid paying for car removal and help Make-A-Wish all at the same time. Knowing that the proceeds from your car donation help Make-A-Wish grant more wishes in Wisconsin is something you can feel great about for years to come.

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 2024, based on the average cost of a wish, donors like you have helped Wheels for Wishes to grant more than 13,638 wishes and counting.
