Planned Giving

Thank you for considering making a planned gift to the Food Bank of South Jersey!

What is a planned gift?

A planned gift is financial support through a will or living trust in the form of cash, stock, retirement accounts, life insurance, real estate or personal property.

The South Jersey Sustainers Society recognizes individuals who would like to create a lasting legacy by supporting the Food Bank of South Jersey’s future and long-term growth with a planned gift commitment.

If you have included the Food Bank of South Jersey in your will or estate plans, please consider notifying Mandy Santiago, Individual Giving Director, if you have not already done so. This provides us with the opportunity to understand your intentions and thank you for your commitment. Your participation in the Sustainers Society can encourage others to make similar commitments.

Adopt one of our member agencies in your county. Your gift will allow the agencies to increase the number of children, adults, families and seniors they can serve each day.

Adopt one of our programs. Your gift can support one or all of core programs, including:

  • Afterschool feeding programs for children
  • Meals for senior citizens
  • Nutrition education for children, adults and families

Support the FBSJ Leadership and Innovation Fund. This program offers us the flexibility to:

  • Make emergency repairs to our facility, vehicles, equipment
  • Pursue new opportunities to enhance our operations, such as the Hope Mobile or Just Peachy Salsa®
  • Respond to a crisis that falls outside our core programs or service area, such as an increased demand for food due to Hurricane Sandy, for example.

Please feel free to contact our Individual Giving Director, Donna Richards at (856) 662- 4884 ext. 138, if you would like additional information about making a planned gift.
