Individual Donations

The Barrie Food Bank relies on personal, private and company donations of both financial donations and food to meet the dire needs of our community. We are a charitable organization serving the Barrie and Innisifil communities. Your donation allows us to provide food relief to those families and individuals in need. 

 

You have a few options for making a Financial Donation:

  • Donate on-line FINANCIAL funds and you will receive a tax receipt immediately by email
  • Donate SECURITIES including stocks, bonds, and mutual funds is the most efficient way to give charitably.         Since capital gains taxes don’t apply, you can give more and get more. 

Benefits of Donating Securities

Reduced Taxes: When you donate securities directly to a charity, capital gains tax is eliminated, allowing you to donate more.
