Join the Food for Tomorrow Society

How can you Help?

We realize people will still be in need of food assistance for years to come. So, in 2012 the Food Bank launched the Food for Tomorrow Society, an ongoing program dedicated to securing monetary gifts and estate planning commitments for the future. How can you help? By considering the following:

  • Leaving a bequest in your will or living trust
  • Name the Food Bank of WNY as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy
  • List the Food Bank of WNY as a recipient for your IRA or other retirement plans
  • Bequest US Savings Bonds to the Food Bank of WNY
  • Donating tangible personal property
  • Providing funds now to help the Food Bank of WNY with capital needs or to support programs or projects
  • Talk to your legal of financial advisor to add the Food Bank of WNY to your will, insurance policy, IRA or other retirement plans
