Make the most of your donor-advised fund

Make the most of your donor-advised fund

I would like to remind you that Ozarks Food Harvest is eligible to accept gifts from donor-advised funds.

We know you have a lot of choices to make when it comes to designating your charitable gift. By recommending a gift to Ozarks Food Harvest, you have the ability to make a life- changing donation to support food-insecure families in the Ozarks. With 1 in 5 children and 1 in 7 adults in the Ozarks facing hunger, your generosity has the potential to change so many lives.

As a reminder, every dollar donated to Ozarks Food Harvest helps provide $10 worth of groceries for people in southwest Missouri. In 2019, The Food Bank provided 18.5 million meals to more than 261,000 people each year, and every donation makes a difference.

Your gift will help people like Charles, who has trouble making ends meet. “I can barely make it on food stamps, so I have to go to the pantry to sustain myself for the month,” he shared.

Remember, you can set your donor-advised fund account to make automatic recurring grants in the amount and frequency of your choice. This is a great way to make your charitable giving more convenient. Talk to your charitable sponsor to learn more.

You can provide more meals—and hope—by naming Ozarks Food Harvest as the successor beneficiary of your donor-advised fund account.

Thank you for your consideration—and thank you to those who already contribute to Ozarks Food Harvest through a donor-advised fund. Because of you, someone will eat today.
