Memorial and Tributes

If you have a loved one who has been touched by Action Against Hunger, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

You can create a memorial gift using the following assets:

A gift of cash in the form of a check is the easiest way to memorialize your loved one and support our work.

Appreciated Securities
The most tax-efficient way to fund a memorial is with appreciated assets you have held for more than a year.

Real Estate
A gift of real estate may be a perfect way to honor your loved one. When you make a gift of real estate you have owned longer than a year, you obtain a federal income tax charitable deduction equal to the property's full fair market value.

Tangible Personal Property
If you have a friend or family member whose life has been touched by The Hunger Project, consider making a gift of tangible personal property to us in his or her name.
