Explore gift planning options.The most common type of planned gift to Mid-Ohio Foodbank is a gift included in your will. This was the best option for Brenda, a longtime volunteer and supporter of Mid-Ohio Foodbank. She chose to include Mid-Ohio Foodbank in her will as a way to honor the sacrifices her mother made to keep her family fed.

In 1996, Brenda volunteered at Mid-Ohio Foodbank for the first time with her church group. She enjoyed the experience so much that she wanted to get more involved. After retirement, she began volunteering regularly and learned about how the Foodbank helps hungry people in our community.

The Foodbank’s mission is important to Brenda. After her parents divorced, she grew up in a single-parent household. Her mother often had to decide between paying bills and buying food. There were many occasions they went hungry. Brenda knows the feeling of being hungry, and does what she can to provide food so no one has to go without.

Below are details on gift giving through your will, life insurance and retirement plans. For more information on making a gift like Brenda’s, please contact Elissa Schneider at Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
