Other ways to give


Planned Giving

Create a lasting legacy

Have you ever wanted to give more, but felt you couldn’t? You may be surprised to learn how easy it is to make a significant contribution to Daily Bread Food Bank. A simple way is to leave a bequest in your will. Other planned giving options include gifts of life insurance policies, stocks and annuities. There are many ways to give – your tax or legal advisor can help you determine what’s best for you.

Leaving a planned gift is easy, flexible and rewarding. Not only will you help fight hunger in our communities, but you could also reduce your taxes, protect your investment income and maximize the benefits to your estate and loved ones.

Contact Nancy Bennett, Director of Philanthropy at 416-203-0050 x325 today to discuss your planned gift, including any special directions.

Donation of Securities

The tax-smart way to help Daily Bread

Donating publicly-traded stock and securities is a tax-smart way to support Daily Bread Food Bank. Donating securities directly avoids tax on capital gains, maximizes the return on your investment and protects the tax credits for use against other taxable income. You will also receive a tax receipt for the full appreciated value of a donation of publicly traded stock or securities.

The transfer is easy and fast. To discuss or advise us of your gift, contact Nancy Bennett, Director of Philanthropy at 416-203-0050 x325. You can also simply complete this form and send it by email to or fax to 416-203-0049. We will advise you when the transfer is complete.



You can donate food at your local fire hall or participating grocery stations, just look for our big yellow food bins. We cannot accept used clothing, toys or furniture.  To discuss other donated goods that we can distribute to our clients, or use to reduce operating costs, please contact Lynne Neil at 416-203-0050 or

Matching Gifts

Many companies will match personal donations, and even the value of volunteer time,from employees, employee spouses, retirees, and board members. Consult this list to see if you can trigger a matching gift, and then follow the instructions to complete the donation. If your company does not currently match employee donations, suggest they consider doing so.
