Ways to Give
To make a contribution online, go to our donation page and enter the name of the rider you'd like to support. From there, follow the prompts to complete the process. You'll automatically receive a tax acknowledgment once the donation has been made.
Donate By Check
Please make checks payable to the PMC and mail them to our office address: 77 4th Avenue, Needham, MA 02494. Be sure to include a note with the rider's name so we know whose account to credit. Any donations that are $250 or more will automatically receive a tax acknowledgment. For any donations less than that, you may email us to request one.

Donor Advised Funds
Donor advised funds (DAFs) are an increasingly popular charitable vehicle, whereby individuals set aside money to be granted to charitable organizations. Let your sponsors know that they can support your ride through a DAF grant. In addition, if the DAF is with Fidelity, the grant can be initiated by clicking on the DAF button on our check out page. Click here to learn more about DAFs. In Fidelity's Geography of Giving Report, Boston ranks #1 for giving to health care and the PMC holds the #1 spot within that sector.
Making gifts of appreciated securities or other assets is most efficiently and easily accomplished by first liquidating the asset in a donor advised fund (DAF), then make a donation grant. If a sponsor would like donate stock but does not have a donor advised fund (DAF), please have them contact Michele.
Donors can make a tax-free gift to the PMC directly from their IRA. IRA gift distributions are excluded from taxable income and qualify for the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) each year. To benefit from the IRA rollover legislation, a donor needs to:
- Be age 70 1/2 or older
- Give any amount up to $100,000 from their IRA
- Transfer funds directly from a traditional or rollover IRA to the PMC
