More Ways to Support MHALA
In-Kind Gifts and Wish Lists
We are often in need of personal hygiene products, hats, underwear, socks, sleeping bags, towels, and sun screen. We need more water in the summer months and more winter clothes during colder months.
Members who are able to secure housing need small household and kitchen items, as well as bed linens and towels.
We have an ongoing wish list on Amazon to facilitate your shopping.
You can also support MHALA when you shop on Amazon. Simply sign in through AmazonSmile and make sure you choose "Mental Health America of Los Angeles" as your charity of choice. Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of the price of eligible purchases each time you shop.
To donate material goods, please contact Molly Ann Woods at 562-285-1330 ext. 1055 or email@example.com.
Memorials and Tributes
Remembrance gifts go directly toward the services and programs we provide our members in L.A. County.
When you make a gift in memory of a loved one, you can provide an individual in your community with a life-changing opportunity to recover from their mental health challenges and become a healthy,
You may also choose to make a donation in celebration of someone’s birthday, anniversary or other special occasion. The gift of helping others can be the best gift of all.
Stock gifts can have significant tax advantages for the giver and is another generous gesture toward ensuring MHALA’s members get the assistance they need.
As you consider a gift of stock, do let us know when and how we can expect to receive your donation. Standard stock transfer procedures do not often include information about the sender of the stock, so it can be hard to track who made the gift.
You may choose to give a gift of stock in one of two ways:
- Stock certificates can be mailed directly to MHALA. Contact Molly Ann Woods at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the forms needed to make a paper transfer.
- A broker can transfer stock directly to an MHALA account. MHALA’s broker is Natalie Perez at Gamble Jones Investment Counsel (626-795-7583). The DTC number is 0164, code 40.
MHALA will average the high and low prices of the stock on the date that we receive it. The gift will be valued at the average price in accordance with federal tax laws. Note that MHALA’s Tax ID number is 95-1881491.
Should you have questions or need additional information, please contact Molly Ann Woods, Chief Development and Communications Officer, at email@example.com or 562-285-1330 ext. 1055.
