The Lift Garage

The Lift Garage remains OPEN FOR REPAIRS but our lobby is closed to customers, volunteers, donors and all other members of the public until further notice to reduce the risk of exposure and spread of coronavirus.

Your donation makes it possible for us to repair cars at 33% of a market rate repair! Please complete the fields below and click Enter Payment to make a monthly sustaining or a one-time financial gift to continue our mission to support low-income Minnesotans on the road to safe cars and secure lives.

Our PO Box is no longer available due to the USPS Building damage sustained in our city; we can now receive secure mail at our shop located at 2401 E. Lake Street, Minneapolis, MN 55406. You may also use our website donate form or complete the Contact Us Form if you'd like our Fundraising Assistant to call you in order to process the donation. Thank you so much for your support!
