Fundraising

Thank you for fighting to end the AIDS epidemic.

All you need to start your fundraising for AIDS Walk Los Angeles 2019.

1. AIM HIGH!

Don’t be afraid to set your goal and tell people about it so they can be a part of your fight. Thousands of men, women and children living with or affected by HIV/AIDS depend on funds raised at AWLA. Your support directly makes a difference in supporting health equity. Download your Team Leader Toolkit here:

2. MAKE IT PERSONAL

Write *your* story. Your AWLA online profile is the first thing your friends and family will see if you send them online to donate. Make the page your own with photos, videos and a personal note. Simply log in at aidswalkla.org to get started.

3. ASK AWAY

The people who mean the most to you want to help the causes that mean the most to you. Your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers will make it a priority to give – if you make it a priority to ask them. The email templates in your online AIDS Walk LA profile are another way to share your story and AIDS Walk’s history.

4. GET SOCIAL

Post to your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram account right from your online AWLA profile. You can use pre-written templates or create your own personal message. Download the free AIDS Walk fundraising app to easily request donations and thank donors via your social channels or email.

5. COLLECT YOUR PLEDGES

Encourage everyone to pay when they pledge. Checks can be made out to “AIDS Walk Los Angeles.” Sponsors who donate online via credit card or PayPal will receive an email confirmation as a receipt.

MATCHING DONATIONS ARE TWO TIMES THE FUND

How would you like to double your donations? Hundreds of companies match employee donations, so make sure to ask everyone who sponsors you if their company has a matching gift program. Check with your employer to see if they’ll match your own donations or the total money you raise (how sweet does that sound?). AIDS Walk LA directly benefits APLA Health & Wellness, which is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization doing business as APLA Health. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent off the law. Our tax ID number is 84-1661910.
