Your donation will make a difference for hungry people. I want to personally thank those who contributed to our summer matching gift campaign. I am happy to report that Bread for the World raised over $180,000—surpassing our goal of $150,000!
An additional matching gift was made by a generous member, and now a total of $175,000 will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
I am grateful to everyone who participated in the campaign, which raised a total of $355,000 overall—a significant boost to Bread’s efforts to protect funding for programs that are vital for hungry people.
Thank you for your generosity and for making this campaign an overwhelming success!

Bread for the World is so close to reaching our summer match campaign goal of $150,000. Generous Bread members like you have already given more than $147,000! Can you donate right now to help us reach the goal by midnight?
The entire $150,000 will be matched dollar-for-dollar if we can raise just $3,000 more. That's only $10 from 300 people!
Ten dollars is less than you'd spend on eating out for dinner—will you be one of the 300 and help hungry people with a donation? With everyone's support, this will make a huge impact for millions of hungry people all over the world.
Thank you for giving generously.

This is a difficult time for hungry people. Bread is fighting a detrimental farm bill proposal that the House Agriculture Committee is voting on this week. Will you please give today to help us double our efforts to defend hungry people?
This bill poses a huge threat. Your gift will help us fight against:
- Deep cuts to SNAP (formerly the food stamp program) that could kick 2 to 3 million people off the program.
- SNAP cuts that will lead to nearly 300,000 kids losing free school meals.
- Cuts to international food aid — which reached more than 66 million people last year.
If you make a donation now, it will be doubled as part of our Summer Match Campaign. Your gift, matched dollar-for-dollar, will help defend these programs for millions of people.
Don't wait — the House Ag Committee will vote this week and the deadline for your gift to be matched is July 20.
