More About Donating

How it works
List Hunger Task Force, Inc. as a beneficiary in your estate plan.
Direct how your gift will be used to fight hunger. Hunger Task Force uses every gift as the donor requests. We have several options:
- Purchase food
- Purchase summer meals for children
- Purchase baby formula
- Education and Advocacy
- The Farm & Fish Hatchery
Or you can make an undesignated gift and allow us to use it wherever the need is greatest.
Don’t forget to let us know you’ve chosen to give to us We’d love to say thank you for your generosity!
There are tax advantages to making a planned gift. Speak to your financial planner about the following potential deductions:
Income tax savings: The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) allows you to deduct a portion of your charitable donations on your income tax return, provided you itemize.
Reduction of estate taxes: Gifts to a qualified organization, either now or at death, avoids the federal estate tax.
Your gift provides emergency food to needy families free of charge and supports advocacy efforts that address root causes of hunger.
Each year your gift will grow in size and impact, touching the lives of thousands of people.
