Make a Donation

When you make a donation to APLA Health, you are giving life-saving support and quality, compassionate healthcare to thousands of people across Los Angeles County.

Your generosity brings health and hope to people living with HIV, our low-income LGBTQ+ neighbors, and vulnerable people across L.A. County. In short, your gift saves lives. Please help us fight for a healthy community and the end of the AIDS epidemic.

Membership Giving

Want to make a bigger impact? Leadership Circle members are dedicated philanthropic individuals who contribute $1,200 ($100 per month) or more, and their support is critical to the future of APLA Health. Email Ken Mintzer at for more information about benefits and recognition!

Donate Your Old Vehicle

Is an old car, truck or boat taking up space in your garage? Consider donating your vehicle (whether it still runs or not) to support us. Riteway Car Donations will tow away your donation free of charge, you’ll get a tax deduction, and proceeds from the sale of the vehicle will benefit APLA Health services.

Employee Giving

Many workplaces offer the opportunity to make a donation to APLA Health. This can be done through the simple process of a tax-deductible payroll deduction, by specifying APLA in your company’s Combined Federal Campaign and United Way, or even through an employer-funded volunteer grant. Some employers will even include a matching gift! 

If you have questions or would like an APLA Health representative to contact your human resources office to schedule an APLA Health informational session for you and your co-workers, please contact Rick Mason at 213.201.1512 or by email at

Matching Gifts

Matching gift programs are a great way to get your employer involved with the work we do. Many companies will match your contribution dollar for dollar, and some will double or even triple a donation’s value.

Use the tool below or check with your company’s HR department for all the details and the form you will need to fill out. Include a copy of your gift receipt and send it to us at or this address:

APLA Health
Attn: Advancement
David Geffen Health Center
611 S. Kingsley Dr.
Los Angeles, CA 90005

If you have questions, please email

And remember, you can use your company’s program to match contributions made not only for general support or specific APLA Health programs (like the Vance North Necessities of Life Program food pantries, for example) but also to fundraising events such as AIDS Walk.
