Make A Gift
As a nonprofit, we depend on people like you for the funds we need to provide our free service. ExtraFood is a highly efficient organization: In 2017, 92% of our expenditures were devoted to program expenses.
We still have far more requests for food than we have supply, and we can do so much more with your support:
- A gift of $100 equips two ExtraFood volunteers with the tools they need – insulated delivery bag, ice packs, and transportation – to pick up donated food and deliver it for people in need.
- A gift of $1,000 allows us to deliver food for 180 people over the course of a month.
- A gift of $2,500 enables us to recruit, train, schedule, and manage 12 volunteers to pick up and deliver 500 pounds of food every week for a year.
Will you join with us to expand food recovery in Marin and help us get more food to more people in need?

TD Ameritrade cannot legally disclose the identity of stock contributors to us–so we will only know the source of your gift if you notify us. Thank you!
Are You 70 1/2 or Older?
Thanks to legislation passed in late 2015, the IRA Charitable Rollover allows taxpayers age 70.5 and older to make tax-free charitable gifts up to $100,000 per year directly from their IRAs to any qualified charity. This distribution is tax-free and can be very helpful for individuals with Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs). RMDs are ordinarily included in an individual's gross income and taxed as such, but by making a gift directly from an IRA to a charity, the gift is counted as part of the RMD but not counted as taxable income. For those eligible for the IRA Charitable Rollover, this may be the most tax-efficient way to make a gift in support of ExtraFood.org. We encourage you to consult with your financial advisor or attorney for confirmation of your eligibility and how you may take advantage of this opportunity.
You can make a gift in memory of someone you care about. Or, you can make a gift in honor of someone. If you wish, we'll mail an acknowledgement to a person of your choice. To make a tribute gift, please email Marv Zauderer and give him your honoree's first and last name, the name and address of the person (if you wish) to whom you'd like us to mail an acknowledgment letter, the reason for your tribute, and the amount of your gift. Then click on the Donate button above to make your donation, or send us a check or stock as noted above. Thank you!
ExtraFood.org is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization with Federal Tax ID 46-4025887. Gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. We'll send you an acknowledgement letter for tax purposes.
