There is an old adage, some say proverb, that goes, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” The same can be said for a legacy gift, a gift designed to bear fruit in the years to come. And while a tree requires nurturing and care so too does the decision to make a legacy gift. So, thank you in advance for considering a gift that will provide meals for hungry people in the years ahead.

So, what exactly is a legacy gift? For our purposes, a legacy gift is a “planned gift” that a donor makes during his or her lifetime and goes into effect after the donor's lifetime. The planned gift is part of the donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning - the most common gift being a simple bequest through a donor’s final will.
If you are ready to make a gift now, in the form of a simple bequest or a beneficiary designation, please follow the simple steps outlined below. Once again, thank you for your consideration.
