Why Invest in SCC?

Despite all the development Somerville has seen in the past couple of decades, the changes pale in comparison to the transformation expected with 18 million square feet of new development slated, 30,000 new jobs projected and six new train stops arriving in the City in the next 10 to 20 years. The need to preserve diversity and affordability in our community has never been greater.

SCC’s members, board and staff are on the front lines of this effort to ensure development without displacement.

Your donation to SCC helps ensure that as Somerville changes, all of its residents benefit – from longtime renters and homeowners to new immigrants attracted to this diverse, dynamic community. 

You can support SCC in the following ways: 

Make a One-Time or

Donate to the Social Equity Campaign-CITC

At SCC, we understand that income, expenses and giving priorities inform your annual nonprofit donations. And we appreciate each that we receive.

If you are able to donate $300 or more, please consider making your investment in Somerville Community Corporation through our Social Equity Campaign and the Community Investment Tax Credit. 

Donations allow us to maintain our current work and expand our initiatives in new and varied areas. And Community Investment Tax Credits made to SCC through our Social Equity Campaign multiply that impact.

Additionally, the program gives you the opportunity to give to a good cause while you get at least 50% (and you may receive as much as two-thirds, a full 2/3) of your donation back! Learn more.

Making your donation online is quick and easy. If you prefer, you may also send a check (payable to Somerville Community Corporation) to 337 Somerville Ave., 2nd Floor, Somerville, MA 02143.

We are grateful for your support!
