Charitable Gifts

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 Brian Barks, Director of Philanthropy & Communications, at 402.905.4808.

Virtually change someone’s reality

 

Virtual Food Drive

Simple and secure, a virtual food drive is an interactive tool that makes your donation to the Food Bank go further. Designed to look like a grocery store, a virtual food drive allows users to select items off the shelves as if purchasing food to donate.

Host a virtual food drive at your company or organization, and we can customize your web page with your logo and send a unique link for you to circulate. We can also track your organization’s participation and send progress reports.

For every dollar donated to the Food Bank, we can provide three meals. With the Food Bank’s purchasing power and network of wholesale, retail and agricultural donors, we are able to do much more with a monetary donation.

To set up a virtual food drive, please contact Stephani Romero, Brand Manager, at 402.905.4809.
