Idaho Credit Union Donation - Giving Tuesday

As we prepare to ring in the new year, Second Harvest thanks you for making a meaningful difference. We are grateful to you for donating time, food and funds to support our neighbors who are facing hunger.

If you’re looking for new ways to help, here are six giving opportunities to inspire action now and in 2023:

1. Make a year-end gift & double your impact

If you’re planning to make an end-of-year gift, we have great news. All donations will be matched up to $250,000 through Dec. 31, 2022, thanks to the generosity of special community partners.

If you are making a year-end donation for tax purposes, please make your gift at your earliest convenience so we can document it prior to Jan. 1. Our EIN is 23-7173826. Talk to your financial advisor for more information on how charitable giving might influence tax savings. Make your gift now!

2. Donate food

Donations from food industry producers and individuals provide thousands of meals. Read on to learn how you can help.

Your monthly gift is easy to set up and manage and will make a profound difference for neighbors in need. Click the button to learn how to become a Feed365 donor.

4. Leave a legacy gift

Your legacy gift will provide meals for years to come. By remembering Second Harvest in your will, estate plan or trust, you will ensure funds will go where they’re needed most to end hunger in our community.

Legacy givers are welcomed into the Kay Porta Legacy Society. In 1971 Kay Porta and a small group of volunteers started the Spokane Food Bank with the belief that food is a basic and critical need. Today, that simple and compassionate vision has become Second Harvest, the largest distributor of food to hungry children, families and seniors in the Inland Northwest.

Kay’s influence continues with The Kay Porta Legacy Society, which honors individuals who seek to establish a strong foundation for a hunger-free Inland Northwest by making legacy gifts to Second Harvest.

Planned charitable giving is simple. For more information, contact Tony at (509) 252-6277 or

5. Donate stocks and bonds

Donations of stock can feed those in need and be a benefit to you. A donation of stock or other securities to Second Harvest Inland Northwest can be a tax-efficient way to help neighbors who are struggling to put food on the table.  Our EIN is 23-7173826. For assistance, contact Tony Cook on our donor relations team at 509-252-6277 or Second Harvest Inland Northwest has received gifts of stock in the past and would be honored by your support.

6. Volunteer your time

We simply couldn’t do what we do without our volunteers. Each year, generous neighbors donate their time to help pack and sort millions of pounds of food each year. We offer a variety of experiences at our volunteer centers in Spokane and Pasco, at Mobile Market free food distributions and during cooking classes in The Kitchen.
