Food Bank of Lincoln

The Food Bank of Lincoln Foundation was established in 2006 with the thought that no one in our community should suffer from hunger. The Mission of the Food Bank of Lincoln Foundation is to support the work of the Food Bank of Lincoln. Our Foundation was created to ensure the financial future for the work of the Food Bank, and to offer our supporters a way to provide an ongoing gift to feed the hungry far into the future.

There are many ways to provide a gift or otherwise endow the Foundation. We receive gifts of cash, appreciated securities, and are able to set up irrevocable trust arrangements. Gifts to the Foundation can be made through your estate, or by trust agreements, through specific cash or asset bequests, gifts of retirement plan assets or other approved methods that may be suggested by your legal or financial advisors.

 Common practices for Foundation bequests include:

  • Beneficiary of your IRA, profit sharing plan, life insurance or annuity
  • Beneficiary under a charitable remainder annuity or unitrust
  • Through a charitable gift annuity
  • As a specific bequest under your will

Call the Food Bank of Lincoln Foundation for a planned giving consultation. We can assist you and your advisors as you are considering the Foundation in your giving plans. It is important that you seek the advice of legal and tax counsel before making any decisions regarding these matters. If you have an interest in providing ongoing support to the Food Bank, are interested in more information about the Foundation, please contact John Mabry at (402) 466-8170, ext. 110 or via email.

Join us in bringing food to the tables of those in need and alleviating hunger in Southeast Nebraska.
