You can invest in your community by joining SWBCDC…



When you join SWBCDC — with a gift of any amount — you keep the work going.             Please consider giving online today.

Or, send your check to SWBCDC, 11 Fairmount Ave #101, Hyde Park, MA 02136


Give $10, $25, $50, $150, $500 — or the amount you can afford — in order to:

Train youth to preserve and sustain our Hyde Park Urban Wild sites

Invest in affordable housing development and preservation in Hyde Park and Roslindale

Develop local leaders who are working on better transit, affordable housing, better green spaces — and to have a say in local decisions

Know that you are involved and have a say in your community

(plus, paid members can vote in elections for the Board of Directors at the annual meeting in the fall)


If you can make a larger gift, your gift will go twice as far!

swbcd_citc-info_20161203-cropped-pdfWith our Community Investment Tax Credits (CITC) you will receive a 50% refund back on your state taxes for any gift of at least $1,000.

If you give $1,000, you’ll get $500 back from the state. If you give $5,000, you’ll get $2,500 back! And you can also claim your total gift on your total gift on your itemized federal taxes. Your gift goes far to invest in the community — but has a smaller impact on your wallet.

Any donor can receive the CITC credit: individuals, businesses, foundations, and other non-profits.

After you make your donation, you complete a 2-minute online form that you file with your taxes. It’s that easy.

Learn more about CITC from the Mass Association of CDCs.

Of course, contributions of less than $1,000 are also essential. If you can give $10, $50, $150 — or any other amount — you will help strengthen your community.

Please give today! Thanks!
