A bequest is a gift from your estate—a transfer of cash, securities, or other property made through your estate plans. You can make a bequest to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank by including language in your will or living trust leaving a portion of your estate to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, or by designating the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy.

Remembering the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank with a bequest from your estate will help provide nourishment and hope to those we serve. Some of the advantages of creating a bequest include:

  • Your assets remain in your control during your lifetime.
  • You can modify your bequest to address changing circumstances.
  • You can direct your bequest to a particular purpose (be sure to check with us to make sure your gift can be used as intended).
  • Under current tax law there is no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for your charitable bequests.
