Corporate Donations of Goods and Services

Companies that deal in items like nonperishable food, toys, hygiene products, cleaning supplies, medical supplies, educational supplies and disaster relief supplies play a huge role in the work we do.

Why Donate?

Donating goods to Feed the Children benefits your company in a number of ways:

  • Tax savings: Your company can receive up to twice the cost of the products you donate.
  • Reduction of inventory handling: Children and their families can use your unsaleables, overages and dated products, including personal care items, paper products and baby items.
  • Quick response: Our fleet of 40 semi tractor-trailers can pick up loads anywhere in the U.S. within 72 hours, freeing your valuable warehouse space.
  • Accountability: Our systems can tell you where your product went, when it was delivered and who benefited from it.
  • Capacity: We’re well-equipped to handle large donations, and we’re always happy to work with small volumes. We’ll customize a distribution plan just for your business.
  • Your philanthropy can be good news: We feature our gift-in-kind partners in social media and other marketing, giving your company recognition for its generosity.
  • Your gift has wings: We can ensure your donation is distributed responsibly among a variety of agencies. Your goods will be connected with the number of organizations you prefer, in your neighborhood or around the world.
  • Peace of mind: Nothing you donate to Feed the Children will be sold elsewhere, and everything we deliver to children and their families is always free of charge.
  • Hungry children directly benefit from your gift: Millions of them! We distribute food and other supplies to children in need and their families throughout the United States and around the world.

How to Get Started

Our fleet of trucks and distribution centers around the United States allow us to pick up your donated goods and get them to kids in need quickly and efficiently. And it’s all done at no cost to your company.

To get started today, contact Feed the Children Corporate Donor Relations.

Once you’re signed up, all you have to do is make a simple phone call each time you’re ready to make a donation. We’ll pick up your donated product, warehouse it, inspect it to make sure only good merchandise advances, distribute it (locally, nationally or internationally), and then report back to you how your gift was dispersed.

Stocks

Your gift of appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is a simple and effective way to change the lives of children in need.

Giving to Feed the Children in this way brings you several possible benefits. You can:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax.
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction.
  • Further our mission in a real and direct way.

How to Donate Stocks or Bonds

It’s easy to send your gift of stocks or bonds today via electronic transfer. Please contact our Planned Giving department for delivery instructions.

If you hold securities in certificate form, you can also send us your gift by certified mail. Use two separate envelopes to complete your gift: In the first, place the unsigned stock certificate; in the other, include a signed stock power for each certificate. You can get these forms from your broker or bank. Send them via certified mail to our mailing address:

Estate Giving

Appreciated real property — like a home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland, ranch or commercial property — can be a tremendous contribution to our mission.

You’ll enjoy many benefits from giving property:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax.
  • Take a charitable income tax deduction.
  • Enjoy possible increased income.
  • Leave a lasting legacy through your gift.

You can gift all or part of your real property to Feed the Children by executing or signing a deed transferring ownership. Your gift will generally be based on the property’s fair market value, which must be established by an independent appraisal.

Please contact our Planned Giving department to learn more about helping children in need through the gift of real property.

Workplace Giving

Workplace giving is one of the easiest and most effective ways to support the causes closest to you. Feed the Children helps millions of children in the U.S. and around the world thanks to workplace contributions.

Workplace giving campaigns are held by the federal government, and most state, county and city governments throughout the United States, as well as many employers in both the public and private sectors.

Feed the Children participates in most of these campaigns as a member of America’s Charities, a federation of some of the nation’s most well-known and respected charities. Membership in America’s Charities helps us reach more employees in workplaces across the country each year.

Benefits of Workplace Giving

Workplace giving has benefits for employers:

  • Shows you care about the causes that matter to your employees.
  • Improves employee morale, loyalty and engagement.
  • Improves your company’s image by publicly demonstrating your commitment to philanthropy.

It also has benefits for employees:

  • Streamlined charitable donations through payroll deduction.
  • Opportunity to choose which charities to support each year.
  • Tax-deductible contributions when employees give to Feed the Children through workplace giving campaigns.

We’d love to tell you more. Feed the Children representatives are available to attend workplace campaign events such as charity fairs and speaking engagements. We can also provide promotional materials and giveaway items to be used during campaign enrollment periods.

Contact our workplace campaign manager by email, or call at 1-800-627-4556, Ext. 5158.

When you donate a vehicle to Feed the Children, it’s truly a win-win: You can get rid of something you no longer need, and we can translate your gift into food and other essentials for children in need.

  • It’s tax-deductible (as allowable by law).
  • The process is quick and easy.
  • You get free nationwide vehicle pickup and towing.
  • It’s a hassle-free way to dispose of your car or other vehicle.
