Monthly supporters are the lifeblood and heart of our work,
they’re our true heroes.

• You’ll help us keep pace with the growing need in our community, even when a crisis like COVID-19 hits.

• You’ll help us plan in advance and bring our costs down, so more of your gift goes straight to helping neighbours.

• The most important part? Day in and day out, you’ll be giving fresh food and peace of mind to children, seniors, families, and others in our community who desperately need a lifeline.

Leave a Gift in Your Will

Use Your Legacy to Feed Hungry Neighbours

Your generous gifts now feed children, families and seniors who are hungry in our community today. But we know there will also be a need for emergency food support in the future.

Making a donation in your will to The Mississauga Food Bank is a meaningful way to use your legacy to ensure no one goes hungry in Mississauga for years to come.

Leaving a donation to charity in your will is NOT just for the “wealthy”. You can leave any amount – either a fixed amount or percentage of your estate – to The Mississauga Food Bank.

  • To read more about Planned Giving and The Mississauga Food Bank, please download the Planned Giving Information Sheet which includes sample bequest language.
  • If you have included The Mississauga Food Bank in your will, please let us know so that we can properly thank you and recognize your gift in the ‘Food for Life Legacy Givers’ circle. The Planned Giving Gift Confirmation Form ensures we have all the correct information.
  • If you don’t already have a will, you can create one and leave a legacy gift to The Mississauga Food Bank by creating a Last Will and Testament on our partner site – LawDepot. You will receive a 15% discount on any document created! To use this discount, visit LawDepot using this link.

Tribute Giving

It is also important to recognize the power of tribute giving as part of your end-of-life plans. Family members are often too distraught to consider the wishes of the deceased and don’t choose any charity at all when printing an obituary or memorial service program.

By including your wish to have gifts made to The Mississauga Food Bank in your memory or in lieu of flowers, it could see food provided to those who are hungry in our community all in your memory! We are pleased to provide donation cards for this purpose.

To make a tribute gift online and request a card to be sent to the next of kin, click the button below.

Make a financial donation in memory or in honour of a friend or loved one.

For every $1 received in honour or memory of a loved one, The Mississauga Food Bank can distribute healthy and appropriate food for 2 meals to those who are hungry in our community.

From this form, you will be able to request a letter to be sent to the person or their next of kin.

Donate Securely Online

Make a Gift of Securities

When you donate a gift of publicly traded securities directly to The Mississauga Food Bank, you eliminate the capital gains tax that you would pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds.

If you would like to learn more, please contact Kimberley Souliere, Director of Development at 905.270.5589 x234 or kimberley@themississaugafoodbank.org.

Make a Gift of Securities

You are entitled to receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities donated. You will be redirected to Canada Helps to process this transaction.

Other Ways To Give

Donate Vehicles

If you have an end-of-life vehicle, why not donate it through www.charitycar.ca and have the proceeds come to the food bank?! Environmentally-friendly car disposal, a donation to the food bank, and a tax receipt—what could be better?

How it Works:

  • Visit www.charitycar.ca and request a vehicle pickup
  • Answer questions about your vehicle, such as colour, make, or model
  • Transfer the vehicle registration over to your local network member
  • Collect the receipt of pick-up for your vehicle

Donate Aeroplan Miles

We are pleased to be partnered with Aeroplan Beyond Miles where we can receive Aeroplan points to be redeemed for flights or other rewards. Donations of Aeroplan points will help us in our fundraising efforts and by reducing travel expenses for staff training.

If you have questions about any of these giving options please contact Kimberley Souliere, Director of Development at 905.270.5589 x234 or kimberley@themississaugafoodbank.org.
