Gift Planning

You can help ensure that future generations grow up healthy – not hungry – by including a gift to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank in your will or estate plan.

Consider adding the Food Bank as a beneficiary in your will. You may be able to add a codicil for a charitable bequest to an existing will.

To create a legacy that expresses your desire to help your hungry neighbors – even after your lifetime – you will want to carefully consider a number of important factors, including the assets to be used to fund the gift, the gift’s timing, effects on income-tax and financial planning, the impact on family members and friends, and the gift’s purpose.

A legacy gift is best made with the counsel of your legal, tax or financial advisor. The information provided here is for illustrative purposes only and should not be considered investment, legal, accounting, tax or other professional advice.
