DONOR ADVISED FUNDS  

Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) provide you with an immediate tax deduction, while allowing you to recommend gifts to charitable organizations on your own timeline.  

If you would like to direct a gift to LuMind IDSC, your fund manager will need to know the following information:

EMPLOYER MATCHING GIFTS  

Many employers offer matching gift programs that match charitable contributions made by their employees. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar. Your company may even triple your donation! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses and/or partners. 

If your company is eligible, instructions on how to request a matching gift from your employer will be sent to you.  

Please mail all gifts and forms to: 

LuMind IDSC Foundation 

Attn: Development Office
20 Mall Road, Suite 200
Burlington, MA 01803-4126 

Have any other questions about matching gifts? Email dev@lumindidsc.org and a member of our Development Team will reach out to you.

WORKPLACE GIVING  

LuMind IDSC participates in workplace giving. Workplace giving allows the employee to make a donation via a payroll deduction. It can be one-time or a recurring gift. Ask your Human Resource department to see how you can designate LuMind IDSC to receive your charitable donation through your workplace.  

Have more questions about workplace giving or other ways to give? Please email dev@lumindidsc.org and member of our Development Team will reach out to you.

DONATE STOCK 

We welcome your donations of stocks. A gift of stock may provide more benefits than a cash gift. When you make a gift of stock to LuMind IDSC, you eliminate the capital gains tax that would be due upon selling the stock and receive tax-savings and benefits while also supporting our mission.  

For those who wish to electronically transfer funds to LuMind IDSC, please follow the instructions outlined below.  

  •  Receiving Bank Firm: Fidelity
  •  Federal Tax ID: 37-1483975

 If you wish to receive a tax receipt, please instruct your broker to share your name and address with LuMind IDSC at the time of transfer.  Have further questions about gifts of stock? Contact Michelle Petronio, Chief Development Officer at mpetronio@lumindidsc.org.

QUALIFIED CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTION 

Donors aged 70 ½ years or older can still receive tax benefits using the IRA Charitable Rollover (also known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution or QCD). QCD’s avoid income tax on the distribution and satisfy the annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for donors aged 72 and older. Your IRA administrator can help you make a charitable distribution from your IRA.  

Have further questions about QCD’s or other ways to give? Contact Michelle Petronio, Chief Development Officer at mpetronio@lumindidsc.org.

PLANNED GIVING

For more information and to discuss planned giving, contact Anthony Padgett, Senior Director of Philanthropy at apadgett@lumindidsc.org.
