Other Donation Options

Midwest Food Bank appreciates every donation received – gifts of any size and almost any kind.  If you have any questions about these gift opportunities, contact our Chief Resource Officer, Jada Hoerr, here.

Personal Property

Accumulated various assets or items no longer needed can be very valuable for feeding those in need.  Gifts of non-cash assets like gift cards, jewelry, phones, tablets, vehicles, boats, precious metals, stocks, or commodities can provide significant financial support for the work of the Midwest Food Bank.

Some of our donors have given non-cash items to MFB. These include cars, stocks, real estate, collectibles, grain, and other items of value. Donors may have items taking up space or may want to eliminate monthly fees on storage units. Non-cash donations represent thousands of dollars. MFB uses an online giving system that allows donors to liquidate almost any kind of quality non-cash donation effortlessly.

How does a donor get started?

1. Visit https://midwestfoodbank.org/donate/donation-opportunities

2. Click the button that matches the type of non-cash asset you wish to donate.

3. Complete the online form.

4. An email with instructions for transferring the donation will be sent. It will include shipping or pickup coordination information.

As with all donations to Midwest Food Bank, donors can designate the division or program that will receive the non-cash donations. MFB strives for an effortless experience that meets the needs of all donors.

IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution

IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution is another giving option that offers charitable benefits to eligible donors.  To learn more about this donation opportunity, click here.

We want to make effective use of every donation to MFB. More than 99% of every dollar donated is directed to serving those in need. In the interest of transparency, MFB makes financial documents available to the public. See them here.

Midwest Food Bank is thankful and blessed by all gifts. We acknowledge the restrictions for General Operations, Tender Mercies, Hope Packs, Trucks and Trailers, Debt Reduction, and Disaster Relief.  Any gift with notations outside the listed restrictions will be used for the general operations of the organization.
