An in-kind donation refers to a gift given to Friends LA in the form of goods or services instead of money. We know what you're thinking: how can you support Friends LA through an in-kind gift?
Host a Drive
A kid needs you. Many kids, in fact. A big way you can help them is by hosting an in-kind donation drive! While we are not currently accepting donations at this time, we encourage you to consider helping in a unique way by collecting essentials and other small gifts.
Hosting a drive is an excellent way to raise awareness about the challenges Friends LA is working to disrupt. It can also be done year round. Consider collecting:
- School Supplies (K-5th grade)
- Toiletries and Hygiene (from baby to adult)
- Household cleaning and laundry products
- Food and transportation gift cards
- Holiday items such as gift cards or new toys
Have something you can’t use that could benefit Friends LA?
Consider donating it later in the year! While we are not currently accepting donations at this time, we typically accept a host of items that are in new condition. From books to tickets — if we can use it, we may accept it. However, we do NOT accept vehicle donations.
Suggested Items You Can Donate:
Concert/play/festival/sporting event/movie/airplane tickets
Arts & Craft supplies
Computer/video games and systems
Office supplies & furniture
Wines & Spirits
... and more!
Donating your time, service, or expertise allows us to provide additional resources to vulnerable children and families. Therefore, we can always use professional support pertaining to: legal assistance, photography or videography work, graphic design, printing for communication materials, marketing, advertising, research, website maintenance, and more.
Contact us or call 213.378.0704 if you have a service you’d like to donate in-kind! The tangible expenses of providing your pro bono service can be at least partially deducted on business tax returns.
