Planned Giving

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

Ways to Give

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.

Bequests & Wills

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

Beneficiary Designations

Naming the Northeast Iowa Food Bank as the beneficiary of your retirement plan assets, insurance plans, or savings account is the simplest way to make a legacy gift.

Account Transfers

By establishing a “Transfer-on-Death” (TOD) or “Payable-on-Death” (POD) provision, you can transfer assets to the Northeast Iowa Food Bank without the expense of a will or trusts.


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.
