Ways to Give
Tribute & Memorial Gifts
Making a Tribute or Memorial gift is a very special way to recognize or memorialize a meaningful person in your life while also supporting the work of The Hub.
Please provide the contact information for the individual you wish to honor or memorialize and we will send an acknowledgement to the recipient of your gift. If you do this online, write the specification of who your gift is honoring in the memo section of your transaction.
Losing a loved one is always a painful time but many find it comforting to know that memorial contributions to honor their loved one may be given to help others. You can invite family and friends to give to the Lancaster County Food Hub in honor of your loved one by including the following in the obituary and arrangements:
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that gifts be made to the Lancaster County Food Hub, 812 N. Queen Street, Lancaster PA. 17603 or online at www.lancasterfoodhub.org.
Did you know that you can make a direct transfer from your IRA to The Lancaster County Food Hub without paying income tax on the donation?
You gift helps you and also helps our wonderful neighbors who come to us for food, clothing, shelter and transportation!
Make sure that you make your donation prior to December 31st so that it is excluded from your taxable income.
People older than 70½ can transfer up to $100,000 per year from their traditional IRAs to charity, which can count as their required minimum distribution but is not taxable if they follow the rules for a qualified charitable distribution (QCD). (This doesn’t apply to a Roth IRA, which has tax-free withdrawals and no required distributions.) The gift stays out of your adjusted gross income only if you make a direct transfer from your IRA to the charity. It doesn’t count as a tax-free transfer if you withdraw the money first and then make a donation to the charity. Ask your IRA administrator what steps you need to take, because the procedures can vary from firm to firm.
Do you want to make a lasting impact on our community and the work of The Lancaster Food Hub? Consider making a gift through a bequest.
What Are Bequests?
Bequests are the transfers of wealth that occur through the will of the donor and can be done in several ways such as:
- Specific bequest – a certain amount of cash, securities, or property.
- General bequest – property that is similar to all other items distributed, usually cash.
- Percentage bequest – a stated percentage of the donor’s estate.
- Residual bequest – all or a portion of what remains of the estate after specific and general bequests are distributed.
