Your Gift Can Last Forever
The Power of an Endowed Gift on Second Harvest Food Bank
An endowment gift to Second Harvest Food Bank today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at Second Harvest. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.
Imagine This Scenario
Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure Second Harvest continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.
Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to Second Harvest, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie get a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes because they made a lump-sum gift.
