Food Finders Food Bank invests 96 cents of every dollar raised into our programs that serve hungry children, seniors, and families throughout North Central Indiana.
Help End Hunger
You can help provide enough food for the households served by Food Finders for generations to come via an estate gift. For example, if you typically make an annual gift of $250 to the Food Bank, by making a $5,000 estate gift, the interest generated on that principal would continue to provide $250 every year indefinitely to help the Food Bank feed hungry households.
It’s Not Difficult to Give a Legacy Gift
A beneficiary designation is the simplest way to make a legacy gift to the Food Bank. When you complete your beneficiary designation form, just name “Food Finders Food Bank” as a full or partial beneficiary and provide our tax identification number (31-1020198). In addition, these gifts bypass probate and go directly to all beneficiaries.
Gifts Via Life Insurance Policies
One way to “gift” life insurance is to designate your charity of choice as the beneficiary. You will retain ownership of the policy, keeping access to the policy’s cash value. You will still be allowed to change your beneficiary at a later time, if you choose.
You can also transfer ownership, assigning your charity of choice as BOTH owner and beneficiary. This method will NOT allow you to change your beneficiary or have access to the cash value of the policy, but it will provide tax benefits. If your charity of choice is a 501-c-3 (like the Food Bank) then the premiums you pay on the policy should be tax deductible.
Similar benefits also apply to annuities.
Gifts of Securities Are Also Accepted
If you sell appreciated securities, you could lose up to 25% of your appreciation to taxes. But when you donate a gift of stock or securities to the Food Bank, you avoid capital-gains taxes, thus preserving the full value of your gift. Your tax advisor can help you.
There can be significant tax advantages for you or your family in exploring planned giving options, including gifts of stocks and bonds, charitable gift annuities, trusts, and estate gifts.
