Philadelphia AIDS Thrift

Supporting HIV/AIDS Services across the Delaware Valley


Philadelphia AIDS Thrift is incorporated in Pennsylvania as a non-profit business and a federally recognized 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization. Our goal is to sell the lovely, useful, interesting, amusing, and sometimes mysterious stuff generous people donate to our thrift store and then distribute the proceeds to local organizations involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Our current main beneficiary is the AIDS Fund. The AIDS Fund distributes money to nineteen AIDS Service Organizations in the five-county Philadelphia region.

In 2014, the Board of Directors approved a new grant making process to distribute an additional set amount of funds each year to HIV/AIDS Service Organizations that apply for funding. Please read the guidelines below for information on how to apply.

Application Guidelines:

Proposals will be accepted for this grants cycle between October 1, 2018 and November 30, 2018.

Complete proposals will be reviewed by the Philadelphia AIDS Thrift Funding Committee in December. Awards will be announced by January 31, 2019.

The grant application period is currently CLOSED.
