Feed365: A Monthly Giving Program – October 6
Author: Conor Ellert
Three meals a day — every day. When you don’t know where your next meal is coming from, that’s a lot of uncertainty. When you join Feed365 and become a monthly giver, you’ll create a reliable source of year-round funding to help provide healthy, fresh meals for children, families and seniors facing hunger in our community. Your monthly gift is easy to set up and manage and will make a huge difference in the lives of people facing hunger in the Inland Northwest.
Here are some frequently asked questions that provide deeper insight into just how big of an impact your recurring Feed365 gifts can make:
Why is monthly giving important to Second Harvest?
Monthly, recurring, reliable gifts are the lifeblood of many organizations, and Second Harvest is no different. Consistent funding allows us to plan, schedule deliveries and pick up donated food, knowing we’ll have the fuel to get us there. Consistent funding means Mobile Market free food distributions will serve neighbors in communities throughout Eastern Washington and North Idaho, rain or shine. Consistent funding means nutritious foods get into the hands of families turning to food banks for help. In short, monthly gifts make a huge difference.
What is the benefit for the donor?
Simply put, Feed365 provides consistent impact, convenience and efficiency. Monthly donations provide a stable source of funding for different programs across Second Harvest, ensuring consistent impact. There is no need to set reminders or mail in a check; contributions are automatic and convenient, and you can manage your recurring donations through our secure website. A reduction in administrative costs ensures a larger portion of your gift can go directly to supporting hunger relief programs, maximizing efficiency. Lastly, when you join Feed 365, you’ll receive the quarterly newsletter digitally, year-end tax receipts will be sent automatically, and you’re invited to contact our Feed 365 program manager (that’s me) whenever you have questions.
