For many of our donors, a long-term commitment is the perfect way to express support for our hunger-relief efforts. Planned gifts help us to secure and distribute food to those in need of food assistance, raise public awareness, and promote viable solutions for food insecurity. Planned gifts often provide financial benefits to the donor, too. Tax savings, current cash payments, supplemental support for family and friends — these and other benefits are available depending on a donor's circumstances and objectives.
Bequests - Wills or Revocable Living TrustsRemembering the Manna Food Center in your will or revocable trust is a meaningful way to leave a legacy. These gifts make it possible for Manna to plan ahead in the fight against hunger. Following is suggested language for a bequest:
"I hereby give to Manna Food Center, located at 9311 Gaither Rd., Gaithersburg, MD 20877, [indicate a cash amount, percentage of net estate or description of property] to be used for its general operating funds."
If you are considering other contributions, such as retirement assets, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts or other types of property (jewelry, art or real estate), please consult your financial advisor.
Securities, Life Insurance & Retirement PlansEach year, a few committed donors support Manna Food Center with gifts of stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares, life insurance, and retirement plan assets. These gifts may enable you to realize tax benefits while giving you the satisfaction of helping Montgomery County's most effective hunger-relief charities.
