Make a Gift of Stock

Planned Giving and Bequests
You can leave a legacy that will last for generations by designating Food & Friends in your will or by making a planned gift with multiple benefits. Some types of planned gifts can help those we serve and provide you with a charitable income tax deduction, minimize capital gains taxes, reduce estate taxes or provide you or others with an annual income for life. Our official name for designation purposes is “Food & Friends, Inc.” and our federal tax identification number is 52-1648941.
