Leave a Legacy of Food Security

A planned gift is a wonderful way to leave a lasting legacy and ensure that the people in your community get the nourishment they need for years to come. By including Loaves & Fishes in your will or estate plan, you will play an important role in the food security of children, adults and seniors throughout Minnesota. There are many ways to leave your legacy: bequests through your will or trust, bequests of retirement plan assets, beneficiary designations, charitable gift annuities, gift of life insurance, and more. Please seek the advice of your financial or legal adviser. Learn more below.

Ways to Make A Lasting Impact

Bequests

I [your name] give the sum of [$] to Loaves and Fishes Too, EIN #41-1421522 for its unrestricted use and purpose.
I [your name] give the [specific item] to Loaves and Fishes Too, EIN #41-1421522 for its unrestricted use and purpose.

I [your name] give to Loaves and Fishes Too, EIN #41-1421522, the remainder of my estate for its unrestricted use and purpose.

Beneficiary Designation

Easy and tax-beneficial, you can include Loaves and Fishes in your estate plan by designating Loaves and Fishes as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy, your retirement account, mutual funds or brokerage account. Simply fill out a form that is entirely separate from your will. Not only is it an easy way to give, but it’s also flexible. You aren’t locked into the choices you make today – you can review and adjust beneficiary designations at any time. Please contact and confirm plans with your insurance agent or financial/legal planner/adviser to learn which assets will or will not trigger taxable income when paid to a beneficiary.

To discuss your legacy gift, or inform us of a gift you have already designated, please contact Cathy Maes, Executive Director, at 952-992-0000 orĀ cmaes@loavesandfishesmn.org. Please be sure to seek the advice of your financial or legal advisor through this process.
