What is Planned Giving

Planned giving is charitable giving that allows you to make a difference, both for yourself and your community. Donors dedicate bequests, including cash, property, and investments that will benefit the food bank's mission, and provide tax and income benefits to you. Planned giving is often described as "leaving a legacy" because many gifts are created to make an impact for future generations.
