Hosting a Fund Drive for Gleaners makes sense! Every dollar donated provides 3 meals for our hungry neighbors. Ninety-three cents of every dollar donated is spent on food distribution or food programs, with only seven cents spent on overhead. Fund drives are easy, convenient and donations are tax deductible.
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.
A Gleaners Food and Fund Drive Coordinator can help you set a goal, provide supplies and answer questions. Gleaners can set up a secure online donation page for you or provide money canisters to collect the funds. Click here to register.
Anyone can host a Food & Fund Drive. Each drive can be custom-made to fit your organization’s abilities, whether you’re a large corporation, school, small church group or private family.
