Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) are very effective charitable giving vehicles whereby donors set aside money to be granted to charitable organizations. You can support a PMC rider with a DAF grant. When processing a DAF grant through a charitable giving account, search for the PMC by tax ID (04-2746912). The PMC typically receives DAF grant checks within two weeks and credits a rider’s fundraising immediately upon receipt.
Double your donation! When applying for a company match, search for the Pan-Mass Challenge by tax ID (04-2746912). Complete your company’s online process or send paper matching forms with your check or online donation receipt to the PMC office at 77 4th Ave., Needham, MA 02494. Once we confirm receipt of the original donation, we apply the match to the rider’s fundraising account.
In addition to matches, many employers have grant programs based on volunteer hours or other criteria.

When you donate appreciated securities, both the gift amount and charitable deduction are the fair market value of the stock and there is no capital gains tax.
