Planned Giving

Donating food and volunteering are critical to helping our clients on the front lines, but monetary donations are an enormous help to our staff behind the scenes. 

The money we collect purchases additional food when there is a shortage, provides us with the proper equipment, and helps with our operational costs. It also gives our staff time and resources to build upon our mission and vision.


Charitable Bequests
  1. Make Berlin Food Pantry a beneficiary to receive a charitable gift from your will, through a charitable bequest.
A bequest is a gift of assets named to an individual or organization contained in a will. There are usually two types of bequests: restricted and unrestricted.

Restricted Charitable Bequests, require us to use the assets given in whatever way the donor specifically requested. 

Unrestricted Charitable Bequests, give us control over the use of the gift and allow us to fill areas of greatest need.

We ask that you make unrestricted bequests or broadly define your restricted bequest, so we can maximize your contribution.


Automatic Withdrawal Banking

Make regular, scheduled contributions to Berlin Food Pantry, Inc through an automatic withdrawal at your local bank. 

Find an amount, decide how frequently you’d like to give, and then fill out a couple of forms at your local bank to provide Berlin Food Pantry, Inc. with a steady source of income. If you have on-line banking/bill pay, you can set this up on your own on a regular scheduled basis.


For more information Charitable Bequests or Automatic Withdrawals, please call (920) 745-0357 or send an email to our Donation Coordinator at donate.berlinfoodpantry@gmail.com.
