MEND is a non-profit, church-based and mission-driven organization which exist to provide a community service by renting our apartments to our clients at “below-market rents” so that the apartments are “affordable” to individuals and families in need.
MEND is recognized by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a public charity under section 509(a)(1) of the IRS code and as a tax exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. Contributions to MEND are tax deductible under section 170 of the IRS code.
Every year MEND and the Friends of MEND must raise funds to fill the gap between the income we receive from our below-market rents and the expenses that we incur to keep the doors open and the lights on. MEND’s longevity is in no small part due to the tremendous generosity of charitable donors who have been so kind to us over the last 45 years.
The Friends of MEND, is a wholly-owned fundraising affiliate of MEND for the sole purpose of obtaining charitable contributions to support our affordable housing mission well into the future.
Friends of MEND is governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of local citizens who volunteer their time and effort. It is a New Jersey nonprofit organization recognized by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a tax exempt organization under section 170 of the IRS code.
Please support MEND and the Friends of MEND today with your tax-deductible contribution so that we may continue our mission of providing affordable housing for senior citizens, person with disabilities, individuals and families.
