Make a difference through your DAF

A Donor-Advised Fund, or DAF, is a giving vehicle established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time.  Donors can contribute to the fund as frequently as they like, and then recommend grants to their favorite charities whenever makes sense for them.

Consider recommending Ozarks Food Harvest to your financial advisor. We appreciate your gifts!

Planned giving

Ozarks Food Harvest’s Legacy of Hope Planned Giving Program allows you to ensure that tomorrow’s children, families and seniors won’t go hungry. These gifts provide long term support of The Food Bank’s critical programs. They are typically bequests, but donors may also name Ozarks Food Harvest as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement fund, establish a variety of charitable trusts or make an outright gift. You can create and leave your legacy in several ways, knowing that your gifts will be crucial to meeting The Food Bank’s mission of Transforming Hunger into Hope.
