Remember Second Harvest in your will, estate plan or trust.

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.

“We can fix hunger by giving a little to Second Harvest to make sure people have enough to eat. This is an area where we know the need exists and persists, and we’re in a place where we can contribute.” -Michael Flannery and Dean Lynch

Second Harvest’s tax ID number is 23-7173826. Legacy giving can be as simple as naming Second Harvest in your will. Here is some sample wording:

“I bequeath to Second Harvest Inland Northwest, in the state of Washington, (dollars) (or a specific asset) (or a percent of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate) in support of its mission.”

You can also give a legacy gift through cash gifts, pledges, bequests, stocks and bonds, real estate, life insurance policies and trusts.

To learn about the many benefits of charitable planned giving or to let us know you have already made provisions in your estate planning to support Second Harvest Inland Northwest, please contact the donor relations team or fill out our online form.
