APLA Health’s 16th Annual Oscar® Viewing Party

We regretfully will not be able to host The Envelope Please: An Oscar Viewing Party this year. A variety of factors—including the uncertain political climate in which we are currently living—have influenced this development. APLA Health continues to accept donations that go to fund the medical, dental, and behavioral health services and HIV support services we provide to more than 14,000 people every year. You can help our clients and patients by contributing directly at aplahealth.org/donate. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all of our supporters, and especially Pauley Perrette and David Cooley and his team at The Abbey Food & Bar in West Hollywood, for their commitment to our mission and those we serve.


Additional Donation

Here are just a few of the other ways you can help.

Corporate Sponsors

We are grateful to all of our corporate sponsors for their generous support. Let us recognize your company’s commitment to equity in health care. For more information on becoming a corporate sponsor of APLA Health, please contact Tracie Ayala at 213.201.1439 or tayala@apla.org.


Employee Giving

Many workplaces offer the opportunity to make a donation to APLA Health. This can be done through the simple process of a payroll deduction or by specifying APLA at your company’s Combined Federal Campaign and United Way.

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 rmason@apla.org.


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.

Your company’s HR department has all the details, and they will provide a form for you to fill out. Include a copy of your gift receipt and send it to us at this address:

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

If you have questions, please email advancement@apla.org.

And remember, you can use your company’s program to match contributions made not only to general support or specific APLA Health programs (like the Vance North Necessities of Life Program, for example) but also to fundraising events such as AIDS Walk and Team to End AIDS (T2).

Planned Giving

Planned Giving is an excellent way to establish a legacy, receive maximum tax benefits, and help thousands of individuals who need access to quality health care as well as those living with HIV/AIDS.


Many of our supporters make charitable gifts by naming APLA Health as a beneficiary in their wills. A bequest is a written statement in your will that specific assets, or a percentage of the estate, will be transferred to APLA. A bequest allows you to establish a legacy and does not require you to part with assets during your lifetime.

Life Insurance Gift
You can choose to name us as a beneficiary to receive all or a portion of your life insurance policy proceeds at death. You are entitled to a charitable tax deduction equal to the cash surrender value of the property and any future premiums paid if APLA Health is named as the owner and beneficiary of the policy.

For information regarding planned giving, contact Chief Advancement Officer Charles Robbins at 213.201.1525 or crobbins@apla.org.


Tribute Giving

A tribute gift is the ideal way to honor friends on special occasions or to remember a loved one while supporting our services. You will know that your gift is a perfect fit every time.

If you would like to donate by check, please make your check payable to APLA and mail it to us at: APLA Health, Attn: Development, 611 S. Kingsley Dr., Los Angeles CA 90005. Please include the name of the person you are honoring in the memo field.

If you would prefer to donate online using a credit or debit card, please see the donation form above.

We would be happy to set up a custom tribute page if you would like to include APLA Health as an “in lieu of” charity for your gathering. For more information, please contact Rick Mason at 213.201.1512 or rmason@apla.org.


Other ways to give

Shop at Ralphs
Supporting APLA Health is as easy as swiping your Ralphs Club Card! Simply sign up for the Ralphs Community Contribution Program and designate APLA (agency number 81297) as your charity of choice. Then, each time you shop, a portion of your total bill will benefit APLA Health programs and services.

Gifts of Stock
Do you have securities that you have owned for more than one year that are worth more than you paid for them? Your donation of appreciated securities allows you to enjoy a charitable tax deduction while also avoiding the capital gains tax. For stock transfer instructions and answers to any additional questions you may have, please contact Chief Advancement Officer Charles Robbins at 213.201.1525 or crobbins@apla.org.

Use Amazon Smile When You Shop Online
Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to APLA Health whenever you shop on AmazonSmile.

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 Charity Services 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.
