Fundraising Guide

The 2020 PMC Fundraising Guide is available to help all riders run a successful fundraising campaign. 

When you register for the PMC, you are signing up for a fundraising mission first and a bike ride second. 100% of every dollar you raise will go to Dana-Farber, providing their doctors and researchers with the resources to discover cures for all cancers.

PMC Brand Kit & Fact Sheet

Use PMC logos to fundraise and promote your participation; any other use requires the express written consent to the Pan-Mass Challenge.

Download the PMC Fact Sheet and learn about the Pan-Mass Challenge, the bike-a-thon that raises more money for charity than any other single athletic fundraising event in the country.

Depositing Check Donations

The PMC accepts checks made out to the Pan-Mass Challenge, PMC, Jimmy Fund and/or Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. If a check is made out to you, endorse it and sign it over to the PMC. Write your egift ID on the memo line of the check.

Mobile Deposit

Mobile deposit in the PMC App is the fastest way to deposit checks. Your fundraising total will update immediately. Download the PMC app for iOS or Android

Mail Deposits

Mail checks with special requests* to the PMC office (include your egift ID on the envelope and the memo line of the check):

Your name and egift ID
Pan-Mass Challenge
77 4th Ave
Needham, MA 02494

*Examples of special request checks include:

  • Matching gifts forms
  • In honor or in memory donations requesting a tribute letter
  • Checks to be split among several riders

Do not mail cash. If a sponsor gives you cash, write a personal check and make note of the donor’s name and address or make an online donation in the donor’s name.

The PMC has made a sustainable decision to no longer mail deposit labels to riders.

Restricted Funds

Restricted Funds

PMC fundraising represents more than 43 percent of Dana-Farber‘s total annual unrestricted funds, but only 70 percent of our total gift is unrestricted. Unrestricted donations are vital to many critical, yet underfunded, functions and initiatives.

Some PMC riders and teams, motivated by personal experience, choose to raise restricted funds. Restricted info must be submitted annually by July 15.

If you do not know the above information, please contact Rebecca Shortle at DFCI.
Please note:

  • DFCI allocates 10 percent of all restricted funds to support their faculty research fund to advance Dana-Farber’s research mission.
  • Individual donor gifts may not be restricted.
  • Inform your donors of your restricted fundraising.
  • A rider’s fundraising may only be restricted to a single restricted fund.
