Getting Started:

It’s never too early to start thinking about your financial future, and making a planned gift is one of the most effective ways you can make a lasting impact. For U.S. supporters, GFN has partnered with FreeWill to help you write a legally valid will or trust, completely free, in under 20 minutes. If you’re not located in the U.S., or if you’d prefer to finalize your will or trust with an attorney, you can still use the tool to create a list of documented wishes.


Sample Will Language:

Legal name: The Global FoodBanking Network
Address: 70 E. Lake Street, Suite 1200, Chicago, IL 60601

Tax ID: 20-4268851
