Planned Giving – Partners in Hope Society

Planned Giving is an effective and mutually beneficial way of giving to the Food Bank. By including Food Bank of the Albemarle in your planned giving, you support our mission to fight hunger and poverty, while making an impactful gift and leaving a lasting legacy of your commitment. Most importantly, a planned gift maximizes your giving potential while ensuring your future financial security and that of your loved ones.

We welcome gifts through will bequests or pension funds, as well as paid-up life insurance, gifts through an IRA, or 401(k). Anyone who notifies the Food Bank of a planned gift becomes a member of the Partners in Hope Society and will be recognized accordingly in all listings.
