Welcome to Philly AIDS Thrift
Philadelphia AIDS Thrift is incorporated in Pennsylvania as a non-profit business. We are also a federally recognized 501c3 tax-exempt charitable organization (thanks IRS!). Our goal is to sell the lovely, useful, interesting, amusing, and sometimes mysterious items that generous people donate to our thrift store and then distribute the proceeds to local organizations involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
America’s oldest LGBTQ & Feminist bookstore includes something for everyone. We’re just the most charming and unique store in Center City.
The best part of Philly AIDS Thrift is the abundance of sales! Generously donated items arrive all day…
Your Contributions at Work
In 2014, our Board of Directors established a new grant making process to distribute our proceeds each year to HIV/AIDS Service Organizations that apply for funding. Our grant application opens in October and funds are awarded in February. Today, Philly AIDS Thrift has given away more than 3.6 million dollars, and we could not have done it without our Shoppers, Donors, and Volunteers! This month we are highlighting the important work of our partners at Bebashi- Transition to Hope.
