FINANCIAL DONATIONS

Help Feed the Hungry during the Pandemic

The need for food is greater than ever because of the pandemic. Donate to Saving Grace and you’ll help us provide healthy perishable food to nearly 40 nonprofit agencies that feed thousands of children, seniors, veterans and families in our community. Your support also helps keep surplus food out of our landfills.

Make an even bigger impact. Set up a recurring monthly donation of $20 in 2021 and your gift will help feed 100 of our hungry neighbors each month.

Looking for a meaningful gift for a special occasion or a memorial tribute? Make a gift to Saving Grace and we’ll send a card or email acknowledging the donation. 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.

Planned Giving

Planned or deferred gifts are designed to help donors enhance their estate planning, tax planning, investment objectives and retirement needs while helping ensure the future ability of Saving Grace to provide food to those in need in the Omaha community. Please consider a planned donation to Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue.

Please contact Tracy at 402-202-5405 or email her for more information.
