Matching Gifts
Double your impact with matching gifts! Many companies want to support the causes their employees care about, so they establish charitable giving programs through which they match employee donations to eligible nonprofits. Simply check with your employer’s Human Resources department at your place of employment, fill out your employer’s matching gift form and send it with your contribution.

Planned Giving
By including Food Bank for the Heartland in your estate plans, or naming Food Bank for the Heartland as a beneficiary of your will or insurance policy, you leave a legacy that provides nutritious meals to those who are hungry for years to come. A planned gift can be of any size; none is too small. Most importantly, you can continue your support of those in need. To learn more about planned giving opportunities, please contact Kelly Ptacek, Vice President of External Affairs, at 402.905.4808.

Stock
Making a gift of stock (securities) is a great way to support the work of Food Bank for the Heartland. When you transfer appreciated stock to the Food Bank, you will receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock. To learn more about making a stock gift, please contact Kelly Ptacek, Vice President of External Affairs, at 402.905.4808.

 

Host a Fundraiser

Proceeds from your fundraising event make a difference in the lives of hungry children, families and seniors in our community. Fundraisers are impactful because each dollar donated to the Food Bank can provide three meals to someone in need.

As the host of a third-party event, you are responsible for the organization, promotion and execution of the event. We will provide the Food Bank’s logo and materials such as, newsletters, brochures, templates, posters, etc. The Food Bank will work to ensure that our supporters are aware of your event through our website and social media networks whenever appropriate.

For more information, please contact Joani Mullin, Community Engagement Officer, at 402.905.4810.
