Frequently Asked Questions

How will my gift be used?

Your donation supports the Feeding America network of food banks. Donations fund our entire mission and cannot be designated for a specific program, location, or food bank.

How will you notify the person I donated on behalf of?

If you choose an e-card donation, an email will be sent to the provided email address. E-cards can sometimes end up in a junk or spam folder so ask your recipient to check those folders.

If you choose a mailed card donation, a card will be mailed to the provided address within 4-6 weeks of the donation. Postal delays are possible, if the card needs to arrive quickly please select the e-card option.

Will my gift recipient see the amount I donated?

No. When you donate in someone's name, they will not see the donation amount. This amount will only be visible in the donation receipt sent to your email. If you would like your recipient to know the amount you donated, we encourage you to include that in your personalized message.

Can I print out the card I selected for my donation?

Yes. When you complete your gift donation, select "Print your own card" as your delivery option. You will receive a printable version of the card you selected. The card will have a space to add a personalized message.

Is my donation tax-deductible? Will I receive a receipt?

Yes. You will receive a donation receipt to your email address.
