WHAT TO DO WITH OFFLINE DONATIONS: CASH OR CHECKS 

Since the event is virtual this year, you won't have a chance to bring your checks and cash donations with you to Boston Common to turn in to Project Bread. Here is what you should with donations you raise offline. 

Cash: We strongly encourage you not to mail cash. If possible, keep the cash yourself and write a check to Project Bread for the cash amount. 

Checks: Before you mail any checks to Project Bread, write your name in the memo line so we can credit your personal fundraiser. If it is a donation for your Team, and not your personal fundraiser, write your team name in the memo line so we can credit your team fundraiser (this is especially important for teams that are fundraising as part of The Commonwealth program).

  • Ask your donors to make checks payable to "Project Bread"

Mail Your Donations to Project Bread:

You can print out these Tally Cards to include when you mail checks to Project Bread to help us correctly credit them to your fundraiser - or team fundraiser.

  • Mail checks to:

Project Bread
145 Border Street
East Boston, MA 02128

Login to your Participant Center and add your Offline Gifts: This will update your fundraising total to accurately reflect how much you have raised!


Share your training, fundraising support on social media with #WalkforHunger and tag @projectbread. Let's inspire one another as we support our communities and neighbors facing hunger.
