Ways to Donate

We thank you and value your trust in us by donating to Culver Palms Meals on Wheels (CPMOW), especially in these changing times. Since we do not accept direct government monies, we rely on the community in private, foundation contributions, and corporate sponsorships. The dollars you choose to share allows us to expand our services and help feed more homebound people living on the west side of Los Angeles. Here are several ways for you to contribute to the ongoing work of CPMOW.

A Gift of any Amount

You can help ensure that the most vulnerable homebound individuals we serve will receive the nutrition and the social interaction they need.

Monthly Giving

Many of the seniors we serve are over 75 years old and barely get by on small, fixed incomes. They are experiencing skyrocketing rents or increased property taxes, along with isolation and worry from the effects of Covid-19. Donating monthly saves time, but it also helps us monitor and plan out our resources to focus on the individual needs of our clients.

Gifts In Memory or To Honor

Special birthday or anniversary? Maybe a gift for someone who has everything? When we receive your donation, we will mail an appropriate note to the honoree or family acknowledging that we have received a generous donation in their honor from you.

Leadership Circle

The Leadership Circle represents those supporters who contribute $5,000 or more to CPMOW in a calendar year. These gifts play a unique role in extending the impact of feeding seniors and helping them live out their independence. These donations help sustain our services now and into the future.

Legacy Giving

Be a part of our Legacy Circle! By remembering Culver Palms Meals on Wheels through a will, trust, or other planned gift, you will be making a substantial impact on our program. Legacy members share a dedication to helping our seniors and their wish to see this outstanding work continue within our community for many years to come.

Workplace Giving

By asking your employer about matching contributions, you can increase the impact of your donation and provide more healthy meals for our seniors.

Donate a Vehicle

Acceptable vehicles are boats, boat-trailers, cars, motorcycles, RVs, airplanes, and almost anything on wheels. While Culver Palms Meals on Wheels cannot accept vehicle donations directly, you can designate our organization to the beneficiary of your vehicle donation. Follow the link below:
