Philanthropic Giving

Financial contributions lead to long-term impact on the issues that mean the most to you, your employees, your customers, and our food systems.

Philanthropic giving is an investment in local leaders and a world where everyone has access to food.

Just like your organization, food banks require funding to invest in long-term impact. This can include food safety training for staff, enhancing staff benefits, purchasing logistics and transportation equipment to reach remote areas, procuring technology to quickly connect surplus products with communities, or launching a school feeding program.

Our teams will work together to build a philanthropic partnership that advances the important work of food banks and addresses the issues that mean the most to you and your employees and customers. The breadth of our Network provides opportunities to invest across multiple regions and deeply in local communities with high rates of food insecurity.

At John Deere, we’ve long known that equitable access to safe and nutritious food is the first requisite for a life well lived. We are proud to support The Global FoodBanking Network as it works to build and strengthen both food banks as well as the food systems on which millions depend for nourishment and dignity.”

Holistic Partnerships Deepen Impact and Strengthen Communities

Philanthropic giving looks different for each partner. We find that the most impactful partnerships incorporate a combination of:

  • Corporate grants: Financial contributions are an investment in hunger relief, waste reduction and climate change mitigation, community development, healthy children and families, and much more.
  • Employee engagement: Engage your employees by matching their philanthropic gifts, hosting a virtual food drive, volunteering, and more. Learn about employee engagement programs.
  • Product donations: No matter where your company sits in the supply chain, you can reduce waste and connect your safe, surplus product with communities around the world. Learn about product sourcing opportunities.
  • Cause marketing: Get your customers involved through a cause marketing campaign, in-person, or online.

Get started.
