Donor Advised Funds

Donor-advised funds (DAFs) are a smart way to manage your philanthropy. DAFs are created by transferring a variety of assets to a commercial or community DAF provider, which may provide tax relief. Then, overtime, you can recommend grants to charities like the Food Bank at a cadence of your choosing. Click below 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 73 years and older), thereby reducing your taxable income. Click here to learn more and start your QCD within minutes.
