Vehicle Donation

Donating your car, truck, motorcycle, RV or boat is a terrific way to support Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia and help makes wishes come true for local children in Virginia. We are pleased to offer several alternatives to selling or trading in your car, truck, motorcycle, RV, or even your boat by turning it in to a wish for a local child. Read more about the options below:


CarLotz is a local used vehicle consignment business that enables sellers to achieve greater vehicle values without the traditional hassles of the sale-by-owner market, such as meeting with strangers, arranging for financing and warranties, and handling burdensome DMV paperwork. CarLotz was founded in 2011 and has since helped thousands of private sellers and buyers as well as companies with fleets save time and money by transacting safely and efficiently.
Make-A-Wish® Greater Virginia has teamed up with CarLotz to bring you a new way to support the wishes of local children. Through CarLotz's Vehicle for Change Program, you can sell your car or motorcycle through their service, and donate all or a portion of the sales proceeds to Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia. The donations received through this program are tax deductible and will fund the wishes of Virginia children!
