Legacy Giving

Daniel J. Harney Legacy Society

There will always be hunger, but there is a way to ensure that our hungry neighbors will be fed in the future.
Be bold for your family and to your community – leave a legacy of hunger relief by becoming a member of the Daniel J. Harney Legacy Society.

Our founder, Daniel J. Harney, was a pioneer for change and left a legacy of hunger relief in Orange County. In 1978, Harney established Society of St. Vincent de Paul, which later became known as Second Harvest Food Bank. He accomplished his vision of ending hunger for those in need through inspiring the community around him to help create a positive impact. To keep his generous spirit alive, Second Harvest has established the Daniel J. Harney Legacy Society.

The Daniel J. Harney Legacy Society is designed to recognize and honor those who have decided to be bold and leave a legacy of hunger relief by making provisions for a future gift to Second Harvest.

What is Legacy Giving?

Legacy giving utilizes tax-advantaged giving so that the donor receives the benefit of using the tax savings to help Second Harvest in its mission to end hunger. There are several ways you can do this including, adding Second Harvest in your will; naming Second Harvest as a beneficiary of a retirement or savings account, life insurance policy, or charitable trust; or making an outright gift to our endowment fund.
