Give to the Boys
Make an impact and provide a Mayhew boy with a good start on the future.
Give to the Annual Fund
Annual Fund gifts have an immediate impact at Mayhew. These contributions are deposited and fully spent in the same year to support all aspects of our program, covering the cost of the residential summer experience for the 10-12 year old boys, the Link Up adventure trips, outreach visits and school-year mentoring for all of the boys, and more.
As a tuition-free program, Mayhew relies on the generosity of many to provide the boys with this transformative program.
Your Gift At Work:
Covers the average cost of a community visit for two boys and his outreach worker, which could include a meal out, tickets to a museum, a pass to visit a local YMCA, equipment rentals, a new boardgame for the group, and more.
Pays the starting salary of a boy for a week of summer employment as kitchen staff or as a CIT on the island.
Covers the cost of serving approximately 285 meals during the summer session on the island.
Covers tuition for a boy to participate in community outreach visits with a full-time staff member throughout the school year.
Gifts of Stock
Giving appreciated stock is an excellent way to support Mayhew while receiving favorable tax treatment – you can give more at the same net cost of making a cash gift! By donating appreciated stock that has been held for more than a year directly to Mayhew, you can avoid paying capital gains taxes that would normally be due upon sale.
Securities held by your broker or bank may be delivered by wire through the Depository Trust Company (DTC) to our brokerage account.

Give through a Donor Advised Fund
A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a centralized vehicle for charitable giving. DAFs allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. Most DAFs can be established with gifts of appreciated securities and other assets in addition to cash.
If you already have a DAF, simply request a grant distribution through your DAF sponsor. Be sure to use Mayhew’s Federal EIN # 23-7423042. If your DAF is at Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon Charitable Gift Fund you maybe be able to direct a grant to Mayhew through the DAF Direct online portal
When you make a Donor Advised Fund gift, it’s possible that the sponsoring organization will not share your information with us. Please send us a note at email@example.com or call 603-744-6131 when you’ve made a gift so we can make sure to thank you and ensure that your gift is used how you intend.
Consider making a planned gift by designating Mayhew as a successor-in-interest on your Donor-Advised Fund. Naming Mayhew as a successor-in-interest is an easy process, like making a beneficiary designation. When you make a planned gift to Mayhew you join other dedicated donors in the Mayhew Legacy Society.
