Ways To Give

Fill plates, nourish communities

When you give money, food or time or raise your voice in the cause to end hunger, you fill plates for struggling children, families, and seniors and give them a chance for a better future. With just a $25 donation, you help Food Bank of Alaska acquire 75 meals, almost enough to feed a family of three for a week.


We take our responsibility seriously to be the best stewards of the resources you entrust to us. We will use your gifts wisely to further our mission of putting food on the table for children and families. You are welcome to review our most recent annual report, audit, code of ethics and nondiscrimination policies here. If you have any questions, please contact our Director of Donor Relations & Communications, Jenny Di Grappa, at (907) 222-3102 or by email at jdigrappa@foodbankofalaska.org

Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

A DAF is a centralized vehicle for charitable giving that makes it easy for donors to dedicate funds to support nonprofit organizations. It also provides an operationally convenient and tax-efficient method for donors to manage their charitable giving.

With a DAF, individuals, families, and businesses make an irrevocable gift to a public charity that sponsors a donor-advised fund program, and may take an immediate tax deduction. Donors can then recommend grants over time to IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) public charities including Food Bank of Alaska. Most DAFs accept donations of long-term appreciated securities and other assets, and donors can advise how the funds are invested, which could potentially allow tax-free growth, and could result in more money for your charity.


Show how you love Alaska with a gift from your Permanent Fund Dividend to end hunger. Choose to Pick.Click.Give. when you file for your PFD. *You can update your pledge through June 17, 2020*
