   Your gift of the amount you can afford keeps the work going! Give online,

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


Southwest Boston CDC is a 501(c)(3) organization. Our federal tax ID is 04-3562853. Your contribution is tax exempt to the fullest extent of the law.



What can you do with your gift?

$15: Help a local family address an urgent housing problem and stabilize their tenancy

$50: Give leadership training and education to a local teen who will preserve and sustain Hyde Park’s Urban Wild sites

$250: Develop a local leader who will join with  neighbors to take action on local issues that are important to them

$1,000:  Make our next offer to buy property for our next affordable housing development

Any amount larger or smaller: Know that you are invested and have a say in your community

Contributing members also vote 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 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.

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!
