Harness The Power Of A Donor-Advised Fund

You can recommend how much and how often donations are made to Feeding Southwest Virginia. In return, you qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction at the time you contribute to your DAF account.


Consider A Tax- Saving IRA Charitable Distribution

If you are 70 1/2 years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit FSWVA and feed the hungry and receive tax benefits. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours without having to pay income tax on the money. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA Charitable Rollover, or QCD for short. The IRA Charitable Rollover has proven to be very popular and effective for donors, allowing them to give directly to the food bank without first having to recognize the distribution as income.


Double Your Donation With A Match From Your Employer

Often your donation to Feeding Southwest Virginia can be multiplied by matching funds from your employer. If you are a current or retired employee, contact your employer’s human resources department or on-line resources to learn more about how your gift may qualify for matching funds donated to our cause.  FSWVA EIN is 54-1939556
