Fundraising

Now the real fund begins!

Thank you for fighting to end the AIDS epidemic. Use this personal organizer only if you do not want to use your online AIDS Walk account to connect with your supporters and keep track of your donations. Please read the instructions on the front, as they have changed. This year’s deadline to turn in funds is Sunday, September 13th.

1. AIM HIGH!

Thousands of Angelenos living with or affected by HIV/AIDS depend on funds raised at AWLA. Even in this tumultuous year, it’s important to set a goal for yourself so your friends and family know exactly how to support you.

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 shareable graphics below!

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.

EARN FUNDRAISING AWARDS

In an effort to continue rewarding our dedicated walkers, we are offering awards for the Bronze and Star Walker levels. Additionally, this year the Bronze fundraising goal has been adjusted to $100.

Bronze: $100

Star Walker: $1,000

Make sure to raise $100 by August 23rd to have your shirt shipped to you in time! We will mail to the address you provided in your registration, so please contact us if it is a business address that cannot receive packages. All Walkers who raise $100 or more after August 23rd will receive their official AIDS Walk 2020 shirt in October.

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.

HOW TO TURN IN YOUR DONATIONS

Due to COVID-19 office guidelines designed for your safety, please contact us to schedule a time to turn in funds. You may turn in collected cash to our offices via appointment only. Email aidswalkla@apla.org or call (213) 201-9255 to schedule.
