Wheels For Wishes HAVE A CAR TO DONATE?

How the program works: Wheels For Wishes is a car donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish Inland Empire. They offer a free and easy way to recycle or donate unwanted cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, or even boats, by turning them into a wish for a local child. They pick-up or tow away cars free of charge, anywhere in Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, whether they run or not. Vehicles are either recycled or auctioned off and 100% of the net proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire. They are a tax-exempt charity under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code, so you also receive the maximum possible tax deduction for your charity vehicle donation.


To donate, you can call at 1-855-860-9474 or fill out online vehicle donation form. They contact you within 24 hours to schedule your vehicle pick-up, which is completely free of charge. Lastly, they will mail out your tax deductible receipt, which you can save and deduct from your taxes at the end of the year.
