Make a Financial Contribution
The BC Thanksgiving Food Drive’s first financial priority each year is securing resources to cover our operational expenses. We focus on this because the return on investment for those expenditures is substantial: every dollar spent on running our local collection events produces a return of between forty and fifty dollars worth of food support for our communities. For 2014, we estimate that our expenses will represent roughly 2% of the total value of donations we forward to food banks. As ever, none of our officers and volunteers are compensated in any way for the value of the labor they perform on behalf of the BCTFD project.
1. Charitable receipts for donations of $100 or more.
We offer charitable receipts for all donations to the BCTFD of $100 or more; receipts are issued in October of each year by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Canada Trust. As well, all groups and individuals making donations of $100 or more will receive a copy of our Annual Report. Donations to our operational fund are payable to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and should be mailed to:
Executive Director, BC Thanksgiving Food Drive
3338 Tennyson Crescent
North Vancouver, BC V7K 2A8
2. Want to donate directly to your food bank? You can give on the FBBC donation page.
While we are grateful for every financial contribution to our food banks, we remind you that the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive does not accept cash donations at doorsteps. If you would like to give financial support directly to your local food bank, please visit the Food Banks British Columbia donation page. There you may choose which food bank will receive your donation; you may also dedicate your gift as part of the our project by selecting “BC Thanksgiving Food Drive in the “How did you hear about us?” field at the bottom of the form.
