Make a financial donation

Financial donations allow us to purchase the type of food we need, when we need it. Every amount big or small makes a difference! Every dollar you donate supports people in your community.

Cheques can also be sent by mail to:

As a registered Canadian charity, you will receive a receipt for income tax purposes for your donation.

Yearly Tax Receipts

In a continued effort to improve our environmental impact, The Cambridge Food Bank will begin issuing annual receipts for all donors in 2022. This means that you will receive one tax receipt from us for all 2022 contributions in early 2023.            

If you have any questions about this change or to request monthly receipts, please contact Lindsay at 519-622-6550 ext. 212 or ljohnston@cambridgefoodbank.org.

Become A Monthly Donor

Monthly Gifts

Some donors prefer the option of dividing their yearly donation into monthly gifts. This provides the benefit of keeping the donation manageable each month while providing predictable funding. A stable revenue allows us to allocate funds to the area of greatest need and ensure that we are able to meet the needs of our community.

Pledges can be made by:
Sending in a series of post-dated cheques to our office address below or by credit card (you can authorize a monthly charge to your credit card by clicking here).

Giving Beyond Your Lifetime

Where there is a Will, there is a way

Remembering the Cambridge Food Bank in your will is an act that is generous and surprisingly simple. You can leave a piece of property, securities, cash, or even a percentage of your estate. Your estate will receive a charitable tax receipt that can lower or even eliminate estate taxes.

A planned gift to the Cambridge Food Bank can offer a special opportunity for you to demonstrate leadership, achieve your philanthropic and financial goals, and lower your personal income and estate taxes. A bequest becomes part of your life story that will impact generations to come and create a legacy of giving. 
Be sure to inform us of your bequest and your wishes. This will give us the opportunity to thank you and, more importantly, to discuss how you would like your gift to be used. Every gift in every will makes a difference. 

For more information contact Sarah at stooze@cambridgefoodbank.org or 519-622-6550 ext. 101.


We have been named in a number of wills to receive a cash contribution from the settlement of an estate. Each time, we are honoured by the gift, and we deeply appreciate each contribution. We recognize these gifts as a one-time donation that can help us in a number of ways:

  • During a particularly lean year, these donations
    make our core work possible
  • Sometimes it allows us to make something
    special happen – like generously filling the Christmas gift bags for people who come to the St. John’s Kitchen dinner
  • It can help us to pay down a surprising capital expense that makes the day-to-day work a bit easier to fund
  • Or, it can help a fledgling new project like Bike Sharing, or the Psychiatric Outreach Project, or a community-based effort like Money Matters which is a Financial Inclusion project.

You can direct your bequest in a particular way, or you can allow us to direct it where it is needed most.
Ideally, you could write us a note about the kinds of projects you appreciate the most, and we can direct the contribution towards the work that you most want to support.

We thank you for your consideration of this donation option.
