A donation to Borderlands Food Bank is a valuable gift. Your efforts make it possible to help us bridge the gap in the fight to end hunger. There are many ways that supporters can help:

Donate Food
When you donate food to the Food Bank, the impact is great. Whether it is a can of vegetables, cereal, bread or other basic food items, your donation is distributed through our network of registered agencies and to the homes of those most in need in Santa Cruz County and beyond.

Donate a Vehicle
A very kind and caring way to help is to donate your vehicle. Please help us make a difference in someone's life by donating your car, truck, RV, etc. We will be more than happy to pick the vehicle up at no cost to you.  Complete the form and email it to us.

Honor or remember someone special with a monetary gift to the Food Bank in his or her name. The recipient will receive a congratulatory or a memorial letter to the next of kin.

A Planned Gift
These types of charitable arrangements let you support our programs far into the future while also providing tax and other benefits to you. You make an irrevocable contribution of personal assets. You will receive the maximum tax deduction that the IRS allows. Your contribution is then placed into an approved fund account where it is invested and grows tax free; you decide who your fund account advisors will be. 

A Bequest
With a bequest in your will you may contribute either a specific sum or asset or a percentage of your residuary estate. Bequests offer you the flexibility of designating a specific purpose or endowment for your gift. This option affords great estate tax advantages.
