The Power of Legacy Giving

Published on April 13, 2022

You can provide for GBFB’s vital mission through your estate or retirement plan and you may be able to make a more significant gift than would have been possible during your lifetime.

Legacy gifts provide the financial flexibility to retain assets during your lifetime, while also providing a possible estate tax charitable deduction.

There are many ways to make a gift to support The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB), including:

  • Planned Legacy GivingMaking a bequest provision in your will or living trust and donating part or all of your estate to GBFB.
  • Including GBFB as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy.
  • Creating a charitable gift annuity that will provide you with income during your lifetime and that will ultimately benefit GBFB.
