NEW! Full Plate Club
Hunger doesn’t just exist at the holidays or the days leading to April 15. It is a 365-day challenge to assure that those in need have food available to them. You're invited to become a Charter Member of our new Full Plate Club. Every dollar you donate provides 7 meals. So your monthly donation of $30 - less than the cost of a cup of coffee each day - can provide 210 meals. To give through an automatic transfer from your credit card, download the Monthly Gift Form here then mail or scan and email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
YOUR DONATIONS keep Treasure Coast Food Bank operating! The Food Bank could not function without the many donors who so generously support our mission of eliminating hunger in our community. Every dollar contributed provides seven meals to hungry people in Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee, and St. Lucie counties. We keep our administrative costs low - 97 cents of every dollar you donate goes directly to help our neighbors in need.

Gifts of Stocks & Securities
There are advantages to donating stock, rather than cashing it out and giving the money. If you donate stock, you can claim the full market value of the stock as of the day you gave it as a charitable gift, and you do not have to pay capital gains tax. If you cash it out first, you would be liable for the capital gains tax. If you have stock that you have held for a long time and it has appreciated in value, the capital gains saving by giving it to the Food Bank could be significant. Consult your Financial Advisor when considering a donation of stocks and other securities.
Matching Gifts Programs
Many companies have Matching Gifts programs and will match their employees’ charitable donations. So you can double or even triple your gift through these programs. Please check with your company’s Finance or Human Resources Office to see if a matching gifts program is available to you.
Gifts of Property
It is possible for you to give property – real estate or personal (like boats, cars, jewelry, etc.) – to the Treasure Coast Food Bank. Please check with your Financial/Tax Advisor to see if this giving option could benefit you.
You can have an impact on feeding the hungry on the Treasure Coast for years to come through a bequest in your will or estate plan to the Treasure Coast Food Bank.
