Donor Advised Funds

Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are a smart way to manage your philanthropy, allowing you to make a charitable contribution using a variety of assets, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. As part of your estate planning, you can designate the Food Bank as a beneficiary of your DAF for either the remaining principal or to provide grants in perpetuity. Making provisions for any successor advisors such as children or grandchildren is a smart way to promote intergenerational philanthropy while ensuring our neighbors facing food insecurity have the resources they need to thrive. Use our online tool to tell us about your DAF gift and navigate to your fund provider.

Retirement Funds

Qualified charitable distributions (QCD) from your retirement funds provide a smart, tax-advantaged strategy for individuals 70½ years or older to support the Food Bank. You (and a spouse) may gift up to $100,000 a year from your Roth or Traditional IRA. While the gift doesn’t receive a charitable deduction, the QCD counts towards your required minimum distribution (for those 72 years and older), thereby reducing your taxable income. Use our online tool to learn more and complete your QCD within minutes.
