Host a Fund Drive

Hosting a Fund Drive for Gleaners makes sense!  Every dollar donated provides 3 meals for our hungry neighbors. 94 cents of every dollar donated is spent on food distribution or food programs, with only 6 cents spent on overhead. Fund drives are easy, convenient and donations are tax deductible.

What is a Fund Drive?

A fund drive is an organized effort to collect money for a set period of time. Funds can be collected in donation canisters, on line or by texting a donation. This kind of drive can be helpful to organizations that don’t have room for large boxes in their offices or a good central location to hold a food drive.

Top Reasons to Host a Fund Drive:

  • You save the Food Bank precious resources – schedulers, drivers, food sorters and fuel.
  • Your donations allow us to purchase our most-needed items.
  • We can better meet our community's nutritional needs.
  • Convenient; it eliminates grocery shopping and carrying grocery items to the workplace.
  • It is easily manageable for companies with multi-sites and/or multi-city locations.
  • Every $1 given can provide 3 meals -a days worth of food!
  • Your donation can be tax deductible.
