Make-A-Wish® Central California Vehicle Donation Program

Have an old car taking up space in your driveway? Donate your car to Make-A-Wish Central California!

Donate a car, truck, motorcycle, boat, RV, or camper to Make-A-Wish Central California and help grant a wish to a Central California Child. The Central California Chapter follows the policies and guidelines of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. The Central California chapter was founded in 1986, and has granted over 2,024 wishes while serving eight counties: Fresno, Madera, Merced, Mariposa, Kern, Kings, Tulare and Inyo.

Donating a vehicle is easy, and your gift may qualify for a tax deduction too! Simply call us toll-free or complete the form, and we’ll pick up your vehicle for free at a time that works best for you. Every dollar raised by Make-A-Wish Central California stays in the area to grant wishes of children in Central California. Get started today!
