Tomorrow's Harvest

Tomorrow's Harvest is Northern Illinois Food Bank's planned giving society. By joining Tomorrow's Harvest, your gift creates a legacy of hope to ensure that tomorrow's families in need will not go hungry. A planned gift can be especially meaningful because it provides long-term support that strengthens our ability to feed hungry neighbors.

You may designate a bequest to Northern Illinois Food Bank in your will, name the Food Bank as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy or gift retirement assets. As some of the planned gift options may also provide tax benefits to you, your family or your estate, we recommend you consult with your financial advisor to develop a personalized plan of giving.

Your planned gift to Northern Illinois Food Bank will create a future where:

  • Every child wakes up to a good breakfast and enjoys a nutritious dinner at night
  • Senior citizens are not forced to choose between medicine and food
  • No one in northern Illinois has to skip dinner to pay household bills

You may use this sample bequest language to designate a planned gift to the food bank:
"I give, devise and bequeath [written amount, percentage of estate or description of property] to Northern Illinois Food Bank, an Illinois non-profit organization, Tax ID Number 36-3203648, to be used for its unrestricted purposes."

You may make an endowment gift today, to be designated to our board-designated endowment fund, where the principal is invested to generate annual funds that will either be re-invested in the endowment or used for board-designated current needs of the Food Bank.

If you have already designated a planned gift for Northern Illinois Food Bank, please complete our commitment form and return it to the food bank. Please contact Gina Gramarosso at 630-443-6910, ext. 130 or ggramarosso@northernilfoodbank.org for more information.
