FINANCIAL DONATIONS

Donate to Saving Grace and you’ll help us provide healthy perishable food to more than 40 nonprofit agencies that feed thousands of hungry children, seniors, veterans and families in our community. And, you’ll help save our landfills.

Be one of 20 donors willing to give $20 or more each month starting in 2020! Our monthly donors truly make the difference in our organization – your monthly donation will keep our trucks moving across Omaha, filling bellies, not landfills!

Looking for a meaningful gift for someone special? Make a gift in their honor and we’ll send them a card or email acknowledgment. Download a donation form or provide gift information when you make an online donation.

YOUR DONATION MAKES A DIFFERENCE:

  • A $50 donation provides healthy meals for 250 hungry neighbors.
  • A $100 donation pays for two months of routine truck maintenance.
  • A $500 donation pays for fuel for one month for one of our refrigerated trucks.

PLEASE SEND CHECKS TO:

Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue, Inc.
4611 So 96th Street, Suite 112
Omaha, NE 68127

All dollar and food donations will receive a tax receipt.
