Legacy Giving

Legacy Giving

Did you know that 72% of all Americans support the work of charities each year, but only 5.7% remember nonprofit organizations in their will or estate plans? Most people say they were never asked, or didn’t think about it.

Everyone can make an impact, regardless of income, and each gift furthers IFCS’ mission to serve our neighbors for generations to come. Will you help us look to the next fifty years and prepare for continued success in alleviating hunger in the communities of Colorado?

Corporate Giving

Support from community and corporate partners is a major component in IFCS’ collaborative work to alleviate hunger. We are always looking for new partners to work with us and help provide resources that support IFCS’ response to ongoing needs in our community.
