2016 Social Equity Campaign Surpasses Goal

We couldn’t be prouder to announce that Somerville Community Corporation raised $386,000 through our Social Equity Campaign this year, far surpassing our goal to raise $300,000 for an increase of 193% over our 2015 total of $200,000.

This reflects the tremendous generosity of our donors* and our leaders who helped us reach these goals. The money raised through the Social Equity Campaign directly funds SCC programs to move our Social Equity agenda forward. This means we can build more housing, place more job seekers onto a career path, help more people achieve long term financial stability, and engage more leaders to win campaign victories that benefit Somerville’s diverse community.

We thank you with our full hearts!

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
