Help future generations with planned giving

The Food Bank’s Legacy of Hope Society offers planned giving opportunities to people who want to be a difference-maker in our community for future generations.

The Ozarks has a strong history of showing its compassion and support helping neighbors like Donna.

“A year ago, I lost my job, and then a couple months after that, I lost my husband to cancer, so our income is less. I’m so thankful for Ozarks Food Harvest. The food helps so much. I just want you to know how much I appreciate it.”

A planned gift allows you to help people like Vicky by extending your philanthropic efforts beyond your lifetime. Gifts made through the Legacy of Hope program are typically bequests, but donors can contribute in other ways.

Consider designating Ozarks Food Harvest as a beneficiary if you have unused retirement assets or excess life insurance.

Remembering The Food Bank in your will or trust is an excellent way to express your support for hunger-relief efforts in the Ozarks.

Your financial advisor can help you decide which plan works best for you and what tax benefits might be available. No matter how you choose to give your gift of a long-term commitment, please know we will be honored by your long-term partnership. Gifts of all sizes make a difference.
