Thank you for considering donating to L.A. SHARES. Please join the hundreds of local companies that have already partnered with us. Your reusable goods and materials will benefit one or more of Los Angeles County's thousands of under-funded schools and non-profit organizations.
Since 1991, thanks to the generosity of donors just like you, L.A. SHARES has redistributed over $80,000,000.00 worth of items to over 2,500 needy and deserving schools and non-profits.
L.A. SHARES wants to make the process of donating as simple and easy as possible.
To help you, we've developed a simple online donation system that allows us to swiftly match your donation with pre-screened schools and non-profits who have made specific requests.
Thanks to this online system, we can quickly arrange for a FREE-OF-CHARGE pick up of your donation.
Of course, you're also welcome to drop off your donation at our conveniently located Griffith Park facility.
In addition to the obvious philanthropic benefit that your donation will bring, your organization will also gain:
We've taken the hassle out of donating by creating a simple online submission form. To show you how easy it is to donate, take a look at the example donation below. Click on each of the steps to see details.

- Thank you letters from the non-profit or school who received your contribution.
STEP 1 - "Tell Us About Yourself": Tell us who you are and how to contact you.
STEP 2 - "Tax Deduction Information": Tell us who in your company should receive the tax deduction letter we will issue.
STEP 3 - "Thank You Letter Information": Tell us who in your company should receive the "thank you" letters from the schools and non-profits that will receive your generous donations. We believe that it's important that you learn exactly where your donations went and how they're being used.
STEP 4 - "Your Donation": Here's where you create an inventory of your donation. For each item you wish to donate, we ask that you please provide us with some details (i.e. quantity, a brief description, estimated value, and dimensions, if applicable) and submit a digital photo.
That's how easy it is donating to L.A. SHARES. Four simple steps - and you control the whole process.
Once you've submitted your donation online, an L.A. SHARES representative will immediately contact you, swiftly process your donation, issue your tax deduction letter, and quickly make sure that your donated items get into the hands of a needy and deserving school or non-profit.
