AIDS Project Los Angeles (as APLA Health was then known) opened its doors in 1983. In those early days of the AIDS epidemic, APLA worked to educate the community, influence public policy to protect the rights of people impacted by AIDS, and visit patients at their hospital beds. Today, they have continued the fight against HIV by providing free and low-cost health care services to the entire LGBTQ community and HIV support services that help Los Angeles thrive. Healthier people mean healthier communities and a healthier country. It means an end to AIDS. It means battling successfully against poverty, stigma, and discrimination.
You, too, can contribute to this heroic work. You have that opportunity with a car donation to APLA Health.
Why donate a car to APLA Health?
The great thing about a charitable car donation to APLA Health is that money goes right into the work of the non-profit group: 20 different services from 14 locations throughout Los Angeles County. You are supporting medical, dental, and behavioral health care; PrEP counseling and management; health education and HIV prevention; and STD screening and treatment. For people living with HIV, your donation provides housing support, benefits counseling, home health care, and the Vance North Necessities of Life Program food pantries, among several other critically needed services.
Do you have an unwanted vehicle taking up space or money? Is someone bugging you to get rid of your old car? We can put it to great use – and help you get the maximum tax deduction… often more than you imagine!
Why donate my car vs. sell it?
Selling a car can be a hassle. It’s a chore to get it detailed, post photos, and wait for (flaky) prospective buyers to show up. Vehicle donations to APLA Health offer you a three-way win. You have a place to send your old car, you’re supporting health care equity right here in L.A., and you get a nice tax write-off.
We arrange for a fast, free, easy pickup. We handle all paperwork, including full release of liability. Plus we maximize the value of your gift by improving how it looks and runs – so you get the biggest tax deduction available.

What happens when I choose to donate my car to APLA Health?
After beginning the donation process using our online form or by calling (888) 250-4490, a donation coordinator will confirm that APLA Health is your charity of choice and ask for basic information regarding your donation (e.g., make, model, year, vehicle condition, etc.).
From there, we will work with you to finalize all necessary details and will schedule, at your convenience, a time and place to tow away your donation vehicle. This can take place almost anywhere, from a residential area to an auto shop or even your place of business.
After a thorough inspection of your vehicle, we will find a private buyer or will sell it at one of our weekly auctions. After paperwork is finalized, APLA Health will receive a check for the net proceeds!
We are compliant with all IRS regulations, including reporting the final price to you and the charity. You both receive IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days of the sale, so you get the tax deduction for the total!
