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 on our online donation page form above).

Receipts

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.
