There is a $5 minimum donation an individual can make online. There is no maximum donation an individual can make, however, only the first $1,000 of the donation made by an individual will be matched, no matter how many times or forms of payment used. The Bank of America Charitable Foundation will match up to a total of $1.5 million for donations to Give A Meal. Local food banks anticipate receiving matching gifts from the campaign in the Spring of 2018.
