Every dollar matters—literally.
With each dollar you donate, Gleaners Food Bank can distribute the equivalent of three meals.
We make the most of your dollar because we’re efficient: 93% of all the resources we receive are used in our distribution of food and grocery products.
It all adds up to nearly 25 million pounds distributed annually—via more than 250 hunger-relief agencies serving thousands of Hoosier families, seniors and children.
Other ways to give money
Matching gifts. Through the Matching Gifts Program, employers can match employee gifts to Gleaners on a dollar-for-dollar basis. In other words, employees can double their gifts!
Planned/estate giving. Make Gleaners’ good work a part of your legacy. With a bequest in your will, you can help ensure that the Gleaners mission endures. A bequest could also offer generous tax advantages—and help your estate pass tax-free. Cash gifts, stocks, bonds and other property can be bequeathed.
Foundation and corporate grants. Throughout our history, grants have made a big impact inside and outside our facility. Thanks to corporations and foundations, Gleaners has purchased warehouse equipment and implemented projects such as BackSacks: Weekend Food For Kids, School-Based Pantry and the Summer Meals for Kids Programs. Grant money has also helped provide training and nutritional education to member agencies—all while helping us distribute millions of pounds of food.
Did you know?
It costs Gleaners less to process an on-line donation than a donation over the telephone using a credit card—and yet, it’s every bit as secure.
