Edmonton’s Food Bank has a permanent endowment with the Edmonton Community Foundation. You may choose to donate any amount directly to Edmonton’s Food Bank’s endowment fund and receive a tax receipt for your contribution. Alternatively, you may set up your own private endowment.
Your private endowment begins with an investment of $10,000. This investment can be made in one lump sum, or over a period of ten years. Once this $10,000 total has been reached the fund will begin assisting those facing food insecurity. Each year, a percentage of the fund will be distributed to help us achieve our goals. With one gift, the impact of each investment can be felt for generations.
For additional information on endowment funds or to begin setting up your own private endowment fund, feel free to contact the Edmonton Community Foundation.
