Say Farewell to 2021 and Do Good with a Year-End Donation
It’s been another challenging year that we are happy to turn the page on, but you can still do some good with a year-end donation. Your gift now can make a big difference for those served by the Chester County Food Bank. Remember, taxpayers can deduct up to $300 of charitable donations they made in 2021 without having to itemize and the same limit applies to single and joint filers. This deduction is only available because of the CARES Act.
Your gift of any size helps us provide nutritious, healthy food to our hungry neighbors. This year, our generous donors enabled us to distribute 3.5 million pounds of food with 50% of that being fruits and vegetables! Learn more about the many ways we support our community!
We can’t emphasize it enough: every gift of every size helps. Our impact has never been greater, and it is the direct result of the generosity of our donors, grace from our committed partner agencies, and the grit of our dedicated volunteers and staff.
It will take years for families, seniors, and veterans to recover from the significant and lasting impact of the pandemic. We’re inspired by young donors like Jack and Owen, 7 and 5-year-old brothers who collected food and funds for their first ‘thumbraiser’; we’re thankful for business partners like Bentley Systems and their Sustaining Community Match Challenge (there is still time to double your donation!); and honored to have community partners like the Brandywine Valley Water Garden Tour, which raises funds on our behalf.
Won’t you join other donors and help us continue to serve in 2022? The holidays shine a light on our neighbors in need, but the cold reality is that they can use a helping hand all year long. You can donate by year’s end in a number of ways:
- Donate now online.
- Double your donation as part of Bentley Systems Sustaining Community Match Challenge
- Join our monthly giving community, Beyond Hunger 365
- Remember or honor someone special with a tribute gift.
Thank you for considering the Chester County Food Bank when making your end-of-year, tax-deductible donation. Here’s to a safe and HEALTHY 2022!
