Why Donate Your Car To Wheels For Wishes Charity Car Donation Program Benefiting Make-A-Wish® Illinois?
You can make a local child's wish come true with a simple car donation. Donate that rusty old vehicle sitting in the driveway, and stop paying insurance and registration. Eliminate the costs for a car that rarely if ever gets used and get a great tax deduction by supporting Make-A-Wish®. Your donation helps not only the children, but the environment as well by recycling your car!
When you donate your car to charity, you are eligible for an itemized charitable tax deduction on your federal tax return. Review our donation FAQs or call your tax advisor for more information regarding the car donation tax deduction. We pick the car up, handle all the details and make it a whole lot easier than putting an expensive ad in the paper, taking repeated phone calls, showing your car over and over again or haggling over the sales price. Dealers rarely offer a good price for trade ins, but making a wish come true is priceless. Even better, we pick up the car free of charge too! Your donation helps grant the wish of a local child between the age of 2 1/2 and 18 with a life-threatening medical condition.
