Join our Heirloom Society

We invite you to include Care and Share Food Bank in your will or estate plans. When you do so, you become a part of our Heirloom Society, you are offering your support to our neighbors in need for years to come.

Include us in your will or trust.

Often, the most rewarding strategy for supporting your belief that no one should go hungry is through a gift now and later, such as a bequest by will. Including Care and Share Food Bank in your estate planning can produce an ideal mix of retirement income, tax benefits, and recognition of your generosity.

A bequest is a promise, written into your will or living trust, to give a portion of your estate upon your death. You may change your bequest at any time. By making your intent known to Care and Share, we can plan for the future and recognize your generosity in your lifetime through membership in our Heirloom Society.
