Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC)

 The CITC program exists to increase private support of community development. The program gives donors who make a gift of $1,000 or more half of that gift back as a tax credit. If you do not have sufficient tax liability, the Commonwealth will issue a check for the balance of the credit to the donor. Individuals, businesses, and some foundations can take advantage of the tax credit.

Did you know that you can make your CITC donation from your IRA? Giving directly from your IRA is an easy way to support our work.

Want to space your giving out? Signing up to make a recurring gift of just $85 a month will allow you to participate in this program.

You can read more about the CITC here.
