Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a flexible charitable giving vehicle administered by a third party, such as a financial service company or community foundation. Donors transfer cash or other assets to the DAF and receive an immediate tax deduction. They are then able to recommend how that money is granted to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity, including Manet Community Health Center.

It’s easy to make a gift to Manet through your DAF. If you have an account with Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon, access the DAF Direct link to make a gift conveniently from your account.

When notifying your donor-advised fund administrator about your grant to Manet, please provide the following information:

Manet Community Health Center
P.O. Box 411107
Boston, MA 02241-1107

Manet Community Health Center is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, Tax ID # 04-2646695.

Please notify Michelle Duggan, Director of Development, at mduggan@manetchc.org or (617) 404-4115, of your grant recommendation so we can track your donation.

IRA Charitable Rollover

Use your traditional IRA to make a charitable gift this year.

IRA Charitable Rollovers allow individuals over age 70 ½ to directly transfer up to $100,000 per year from an IRA account to qualified charities. This transfer counts toward the required minimum distribution (RMD) rule for IRA accounts, and such distributions are free of both income and estate taxes.

While the 2019 Secure Act raised the RMD age to 72, donors may still make qualified charitable distribution gifts starting at age 70 ½.

Please notify Michelle Duggan, Director of Development, at mduggan@manetchc.org or (617) 404-4115 when you direct the rollover so we can look for the check from your IRA administrator. We can also provide a sample letter you can send to your plan provider to initiate a rollover.

Planned Giving

With a planned gift to Manet Community Health Center, you can combine your desire to give to charity with your financial and estate planning goals. Including Manet in your will or trust – or any other planned gift – advances Manet’s mission of ensuring high-quality, comprehensive health care is accessible to all and makes a long-term impact on the well-being of our communities. No gift has a more lasting impact.
