Leadership Giving

When you give a gift to Second Harvest of $2,000 or more, you join a special group of inspirational donors. Support at this level provides the stable funding required for Second Harvest to do its work rescuing and delivering fresh, healthy meals to Torontonians in need.

Leadership gifts are also about choice. You can choose to make your gift now, or at a future date. You can choose to designate your gift to one of our programs, or you can give an unrestricted gift that Second Harvest can designate to the area where it is needed most.

As a Leadership donor, Second Harvest will recognize you in our annual report (although you have the choice to remain anonymous).

There are many ways to become part of our Leadership Donor family:

Make a cash gift. Simply mail a cheque with “Leadership Gift” in the memo line, or make a secure online donation.

Make a Multi-Year Pledge Commitment. Commitments of $5,000 or more may be spread out over more than one year and up to five years.

Join Partners Against Hunger, our Monthly Giving Program. Contact Shane DeMerchant at 416.408.2594 x224 or shaned@secondharvest.ca for more details, or sign up now on our secure monthly giving page.

Make a gift of stock or securities. Donating a publicly-listed stock or security is a tax-smart way to make a substantial contribution to Second Harvest. Contact us for more information.

Leave a gift for the future. Remember Second Harvest in your will or your life insurance policy. For more information about legacy giving, contact Jennifer Verschraegen at 416.408.2594 x231 or at jenniferv@secondharvest.ca.

Your Leadership Gift to Second Harvest will provide an important source of immediate or future funding that will ensure we can continue our mission of rescuing and delivering food for 22,000 meals a day.
