You can make a difference in our community

Plan a gift now to feed families in the future.

What is a legacy gift?

A legacy gift is a lasting statement of your generosity, care and commitment. It is an opportunity to say that you believe our community should be hungry no more and dedicate your future to a future that is hunger free. 

Whether through a gift in a will, a gift of securities, or a legacy gift, legacy giving is a powerful way to fight hunger on a local level in a community that means the most to you. 

In addition to supporting a local cause that is impactful to your community and a cause that is important and close to your heart, a planned donation can provide important financial benefits that are not always available through conventional donations. Some options include:

  • life insurance
  • memorial funds
  • securities
  • gift in will
  • retirement funds
  • endowment funds.

We ask that you give the gift of caring to those that are hungry. With your gift, Gleaners Food Bank has the power to continue our vision and mission within this community. 

How can Gleaners help you plan your legacy?

Our team can provide assistance in helping you to plan your heritage and establish a plan that is suitable to your philanthropic goals and financial situation.

The following is important to remember when deciding on giving a legacy gift:

  • You are considering both personal and family needs
  • That your legacy gift is tailored to your financial situation
  • Legacy gifts are normally giving through assets and not current income
  • It is a tax-effective way of giving and is a personal benefit
  • Enables you to make a difference in your community by giving to an organization that is important to you

A legacy gift to Gleaners Food Bank might be one of the biggest gifts that you will give in your lifetime and has significant power to change the lives of others. Whether it is providing a meal to a family, making sure children have food for their lunches or ensuring that families are able to put food on their table, your gift will help to transform the lives of children, families and communities for a greater future.
