Top Reasons to Consider a Cash Donation

While food drives are a great way to clean out your cupboards and provide a tangible "feel-good" experience while filling pantry shelves, your cash donations can provide even greater value:

  1. Tax Deductible - cash deductions are easy to document and include on your tax return (assuming you itemize).  This means your money can go further at the Pantry than in your own pocket!
  2. Greater Buying Power - the Pantry purchases many items from the Northern Illinois Food Bank at a price as much as 10x less than retail.  While NIFB does not always stock everything that is needed, the items that are available are a tremendous value to our clients.
  3. Cash Doesn't Expire - cash donations are saved and used to fill gaps in donations vs. client needs throughout the year.  Donations are typically low over the late spring and summer.
