“What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.”

–Albert Pine

Planned giving allows you to leave a legacy that reflects the values you hold dear, while also ensuring the care of your loved ones. If those core values include the belief that no one in our great city should go hungry, then consider remembering Food Bank For New York City in your will or revocable trust.  Not only are you leaving a legacy of commitment to our mission, but your gift also allows Food Bank to plan ahead in the operations, programs, and initiatives that help our hungry neighbors put food on the table. We’re able to secure and distribute food to those in need and promote sustainable solutions for food poverty. 

Planned gifts often provide financial benefits to the donor, too. Tax savings, current cash payments, supplemental support for family and friends, and other benefits may be available, depending on a donor’s circumstances and objectives.

Here is some suggested language for a bequest to Food Bank:

“I hereby give to Food Bank For New York City, located at 39 Broadway, 10th floor, New York, NY 10006, [cash amount, percentage of net estate or description of property] to be used for its general purposes.”

Our planned giving officers are available to help donors evaluate their giving options. To learn more, contact Erin Hill, Director, Individual and Major Gifts, at 212.566.7855 ext. 2247. Click here for other ways to make a financial gift to Food Bank, or download a donation form here.
