Make a Donation to the
Community FoodBank
of New Jersey

Every community in the state, including yours, is affected by hunger. When you make a donation to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, you directly support our mission and operations as we combat hunger throughout New Jersey.

When you make a donation to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, we dedicate 92% of our expenses to programs and allocate just 8% to administration and fundraising.

Here are some of the ways you can contribute and help us provide critical resources to our neighbors in need.

Donate Now

By giving now to CFBNJ, you can help us make a direct impact right away.

Give A Recurring Donation

By giving a recurring gift to CFBNJ, you can combat hunger all year long. Our Sustainers Circle is an effective way for you to continuously assist our neighbors. Something like donating $30 monthly would mean feeding your neighbor for a whole month. It only requires a simple one-time sign-up with the option to pause, end or opt-out at any time, and you can set the frequency- weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly, and more. Your recurring donations make a direct difference in our community by giving our organization a reliable income.

Give In Tribute

Honor a loved one while providing food for hungry neighbors. Giving in tribute is a heartfelt way to honor someone important while aiding hunger relief, whether in celebration or remembrance. Join our Sustainers Circle or make a one-time payment as a tribute to a loved one today.

To make a tribute donation, make sure to check the “give in honor or in memory” box and type in your honoree’s name. After your donation is complete, you will have the option to add a custom message to your gift. This note will be sent to the recipient via email or postcard- your choice.

Family Philanthropy

Your family’s charitable values create an ethical and spiritual continuity across generations and anchors your own purpose and goals. Our Donor Engagement team partners with families both as generous supporters and as champions of our mission to end hunger in New Jersey. Reach out to learn more about how you and your family can strengthen food security in our community and advance your charitable priorities through hands-on and financial support.

Appreciated Securities, Stocks, and DAFs

When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value – and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits).

According to IRS regulations, the date of your gift corresponds to the date it arrives in our possession (for transfers from brokerage account to brokerage account). The following information is necessary to transfer stock to our account:

  • Donor name and address
  • Name and number of securities transfered

Security Transfers & Wire Transfers

Please contact our Donor Services team to obtain the information necessary to donate securities to CFBNJ

IRA Rollovers

You can transfer or roll over your IRA to CFBNJ. Please contact your financial institution directly to assist you with this process.

Donor-Advised Funds

DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants from your donor–advised fund, also known as a DAF, directly through our website. DAF Direct currently facilitates grant recommendations from donors of Fidelity Charitable®, Schwab Charitable®, and the BNY Mellon Charitable Gift Fund®. Simply fill out the form on the right to get this process started.

CFBNJ Tax ID number: 222 423 882

Leave A Legacy With Planned Giving

A planned gift to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey enables charitable donations at a level you might not have thought possible while maximizing tax benefits for you and your loved ones.

By joining the Food•Help•Hope Legacy Society, you will make a lasting impact for our New Jersey neighbors in need. Your bequest will provide nutritious food, support the expansion of critical anti-hunger programs, and help the FoodBank address the root causes of hunger in New Jersey.

Corporate Giving

CFBNJ is fortunate to have dedicated corporate partners that support our efforts to end hunger in New Jersey by generously donating food, funds, and time. Currently, more than 100 companies are among our Impact Partner ranks. Partnering with CFBNJ can be an effective way for companies to meet their goals for community involvement and employee engagement. We offer a number of opportunities for collaboration, ranging from programmatic funding to sponsorship.

Feeding America Promotions

As a Feeding America network food bank, CFBNJ often receives funds raised locally at these retailers. If you choose to support these campaigns, know that CFBNJ and our network of community partner agencies will benefit. Thank you for your support!
