The Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) provides a 50% tax credit against Commonwealth of Massachusetts tax liability. If you do not have sufficient tax liability, the credit is refundable, and the Commonwealth will issue you a check for the balance of the credit. The minimum donation is $1,000, which may seem like a lot, but you get $500 back, even though SCC receives the full $1000!

When you become a part of the Social Equity campaign, you are investing in our Community Investment Plan. These unrestricted donations are incredibly valuable to SCC, providing flexible capital to seed new programs, fill funding gaps and leverage other resources. 


  • Considerable Tax Savings
  • Open to individuals and Corporations anywhere in the U.S. – tell your friends & family!
  • Investing in your community for real social equity impact

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.
