Your Gift Can Last Forever
An endowment gift to Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at Second Harvest Food Bank. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.
An Example of How It Works
Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure Second Harvest Food Bank continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.
Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to Second Harvest Food Bank, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie get a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes because they made a lump-sum gift.
