SCC’s Social Equity Campaign Is in Full Swing

This is the time to make your pledge to SCC through the Social Equity Campaign in order to be eligible for the 2017 Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC). You’ll get 50% of your donation back as a state tax refund or credit (plus the deduction from your federal taxes). 

Since the first year of CITC in 2014, SCC has benefited enormously from the generosity of our donors to expand our work and our impact to connect people to jobs, affordable housing, and economic opportunities. We are committed to finding creative and robust approaches to making sure people of all incomes can thrive in Somerville.

Join Us for a House Event

Want to learn more? Several of our donors will be hosting Social Equity Campaign/CITC house parties at their homes this fall. Interested in going? Send an email Meridith, and she’ll connect you with an event. These are informal gatherings to meet others from the community, while learning more about SCC, the Social Equity Campaign and the mechanics of CITC, and enjoying great food, drinks and lively conversation.

Ready to Make a Donation?

You can make a pledge by contacting Meridith Levy via email, or call her at 617.766.5931, ext. 242. CITC eligibility requires a donation of $1,000 or more (but  the state return and federal deduction means that you can receive up to two-thirds (2/3) of the actual donation back as tax credit/refund or deduction). Once you’re ready to make the donation, you can mail a check in to SCC, 337 Somerville Avenue, Somerville, MA  02143. 

Be sure to include your contact information, and we’ll be in touch to set up an online account through the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD). DHCD can then process your tax credit information.

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.
