Ensure that future generations grow up healthy!
Supporting the Programs and Services of the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia means that every day children, seniors, families, and individuals who don’t have enough to eat have a resource in their community to turn to for nourishment. You can help ensure that future generations grow up healthy by including the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia in your will or estate planning, giving gifts of securities, and by giving gifts from savings and retirement accounts.

Bequests and Wills
Consider adding the Foodbank as a beneficiary in your will. You may be able to add a simple codicil for a charitable bequest to an existing will.
Here is some common bequest language for you to use:
- I bequeath ____________________ (describe dollar amount, property to be given, or proportion of your estate) to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia (EIN# 52-1219783), a tax exempt organization under IRC Section 501 (c) (3), for its general charitable purposes.
Gifts of Beneficiary Designations
Naming the Foodbank as the beneficiary of your retirement plan assets, insurance plan, or savings account is the simplest way to make a planned gift to the Foodbank. These gifts avoid the double taxation your heirs would face if you left these assets to them. In addition, you can easily change your plans if your life circumstances change.
When you complete your beneficiary designation form, just name the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia as full or partial beneficiary and provide our tax ID number (EIN# 52-1219783),
