Beneficiary Designations

An easy way to help New Jersey families living in poverty

In just a few minutes, you can make a lasting impact at Center for Food Action and it won’t affect your current budget. Simply name Center for Food Action as a beneficiary of one of your assets, such as the following:

  • IRAs or retirement plan
  • Life insurance policy
  • Commercial annuity

It only takes three steps to make this type of gift. Here’s how to name Center for Food Action as a beneficiary:

  1. Contact your retirement plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial institution for a change-of-beneficiary form.
  2. Decide what percentage (1 to 100) you would like Center for Food Action to receive and name us, along with the percentage you chose, on the beneficiary form.
  3. Return the completed form to your plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial institution.

IRA Charitable Rollover

If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit Center for Food Action and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours without having to pay income taxes on the money. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short.

This law has no expiration date so you are free to make annual gifts this year and well into the future.

Why Consider Giving an IRA Charitable Rollover?

  • Your gift will be put to use today, allowing you to see the difference you’re making to families facing hunger in New Jersey
  • You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
  • If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution for the year, your IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.

Let’s Join Together to fund 10,000 Snack Packs in Honor of 9/11

Last year, the pandemic made it necessary to make CFA’s 9/11 Weekend Snack Pack event – virtual. We set and exceeded a goal of 10,000 snack packs. Once again, in 2021, Covid-19 variants make a virtual event a safe choice for our friends, supporters and the communities were serve.

Join us as we address the issue of childhood hunger in NJ and help area school children through the #10kSnackPackChallenge. Your support will ensure that no child goes hungry this school year. Our goal is to raise $50,000 so we can create 10,000 snack packs.
