Gifts in Wills

MFBN has partnered with FreeWill to make it simpler than ever to create or update your legal will and start your legacy with MFBN in the process. Click here to create your legal will and legacy gift for free.

Leaving a legacy gift to MFBN, whether in your will or another part of your estate, ensures your assets are put to their best philanthropic use and distributed in a way that reflects your beliefs and values.

Some gift options can provide current tax benefits to you or future tax benefits to your estate. In addition, some options offer you or your family lifetime income today.

You can see the different options on our Planned Giving page or contact Bill Mathews, Chief Development Officer, to discuss how you would like to leave your legacy with Montana Food Bank Network.

Plan for all of your assets

Did you know you may have additional assets not covered in your will or trust? If you have an IRA, 401(k), life insurance policy, or any other accounts, these are called non-probate assets and will need to be planned separately.

Using the online tool below, you can log all of your assets, name MFBN as a beneficiary to strengthen our mission, and receive printable instructions on how to set each one up with your broker.

IRA Giving

If you are over 70.5, giving from your IRA helps you reduce your taxable income — and for those over 72, who must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), an IRA gift is a simple way to fulfill it while supporting our work.

We have invested in a secure IRA donation tool to make it easier than ever to give to MFBN directly from your IRA and receive tax benefits. It only takes a few minutes to use and will auto-complete your paperwork for you.
