If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Capital Area Food Bank, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor them or celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday, while supporting our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and will make a difference.

An Example of How It Works

John and his mother smiling When John's mother passed away, he knew he wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. He remembered that during her lifetime she was always praising CAFB for its tireless efforts to better the community.

John decided to make a gift to CAFB in his mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will his mother's legacy live on at CAFB thanks to the gift, but John also qualified for a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
