When a memorial or honor gift is received, the Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance will send an acknowledgement to the person you designate, informing them of your gift. When you make a donation in the name of a friend or a loved one, your contribution helps us fight hunger in our state.
Business and corporate engagement
The Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance has multiple sponsorship and donation opportunities for businesses at all levels. These include event sponsorships, donations of food and supplies, and more.
Sponsorships start at $500 and go up to over $50,000 for educational programs, gardening and gleaning, special events, and other opportunities. Please contact the Development Director to learn more.
PLANNED GIVING & TAX ADVANTAGES
To include the Alliance in your final or legacy planning, please contact the Development Director.
We also ask that you remember the Alliance when planning the use of your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Alliance donors are allowed to take up to $300 in addition to the standard deduction in 2020.
The Alliance also readily accepts contributions of stock. For more information, contact Operations Manager Temeka Williams: firstname.lastname@example.org
Donating: Money or food?
Both have their place in making sure there is enough food to feed hungry Arkansans.
Every dollar you contribute can represent three meals for a person in need. Through our Donation and Purchasing programs, we are able to acquire food for far less than you can buy it in your local grocery store. Making cash donations means your dollar can buy more and do more.
Other Donation Sources
Manufacturing, distribution, agricultural and retail businesses are important sources of much needed food as well as non-food donations. If your business is interested in making in-kind contributions, please contact the Development Director.
Grocery gift card drives are a great way to help hungry Arkansans access nutrition for themselves and their families. And during the COVID-19 pandemic, grocery gift cards help the Alliance put food assistance directly in the hands of those who need it — but with minimal contact to ensure all those involved stay safe and health.If you or your organization is interested in doing a grocery gift card drive, please contact the Development Director.
There are many other ways to support the Alliance: while pumping your gas, shopping on Amazon, and more. Visit our CAUSE MARKETING page to learn more.
The safety of our staff, volunteers + supporters is of the utmost importance to the Alliance, and we are practicing CDC social distancing guidelines to help stop the spread of COVID-19. As a result, most of our special events have been cancelled or reimagined in virtual formats. As we navigate the future together, check back to our website for information on upcoming events and volunteer opportunities.
