The work of the Greater Lansing Food Bank would not be possible without the generous support of the community. Thanks to our donors, the GLFB is able to serve the emergency food needs of tens of thousands of people, many of them seniors and children. Our recipients also include the “working poor” – those who are employed but don’t earn enough to meet housing, health, transportation and food needs.
You may give a memorial gift in honor of, or, to celebrate the life of a loved one who has passed away. Many donors choose to make memorial gifts on dates of personal significance, such as the loved one’s birthday, anniversary, etc.
Find out if your company will match your donation. Fill out your employer’s matching gift form (usually available through your company’s human resources department) and send it with your contribution.
For many donors, a long-term commitment is the perfect way to support hunger relief. Planned gifts help us secure and distribute food to those in need, raise public awareness and advance solutions for food poverty. Your attorney can guide you in the best way to structure planned giving for your particular circumstances.
Planned gifts often provide financial benefits to the donor, too. Consult your tax advisor for potential tax benefits.
