Donation FAQs

How do I make a donation?

You can make a financial donation online, by calling 1-866-GLEANER or by mailing a check to Gleaners Community Food Bank at 2131 Beaufait, Detroit, MI 48207.

Can I make a donation in someone’s honor/in memory of a loved one?

Yes. More and more people are choosing alternative gift options for birthdays, holidays, memorials and many other occasions. On the online donation form, select your donation type from the “This donation is an honor/memorial gift:” drop down menu. Fill in the blank space with the title and name of the person you are honoring or memorializing. Then include the name and address of who you’d like to receive a card acknowledging the gift. Including a personalized message, closing, and signature is voluntary.

Will I get a receipt for my donation?

Yes, once your donation has been processed, you will receive a confirmation letter and receipt (via email if your gift was made online, via mail if your gift was made otherwise) that you can keep for your personal records. You should receive this acknowledgement within 24 hours for online donations, and one to three weeks for all other donations.

How do I change my monthly giving method of payment, monthly amount, or stop payment?

To make any changes to your account, please contact our Development Team at 1-866-GLEANER ext. 660. For security reasons, we do not recommend you send changes or updates to your credit card by postal mail.

Am I able to receive a refund of my donation?

If you have made an error in making your donation or change your mind about contributing to Gleaners, we will honor your request for a refund made within 15 days of your donation.

To request a refund, call our Development Team at 1-866-GLEANER ext. 660. Refunds are returned using the original method of payment. If you made your donation by credit card, your refund will be credited to that same credit card.

Is my donation tax deductible?
