Make a Donation Today

4,105 units are needed! Metro West CD strives to help the 22 towns in its target area to build and keep 10% of their housing stock affordable to low and moderate income households.

Here’s how you can help! Your donation of $1,000 or more helps Metro West CD provide essential programs and projects in our communities and you receive a $500 credit (or 50% of your gift) on your state income taxes.

Getting to 10% affordability in Metro West is no small undertaking, and we need your help to get there!

We all know someone who will benefit from more affordable housing in the Metro West area – Low and moderate income individuals and families: our aging parents, teachers in the local school system, our hairdresser, our friend, our kids who want to continue living in the community they grew up in.

Each $1,000 you invest in creating affordable housing with Metro West CD provides you with a $500 tax credit from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as well as the standard federal tax deduction.

For example:

  • Donation to Metro West CD – $1,000
  • Community Investment Tax Credit – ($500)
  • Federal tax deduction (at 35% tax bracket) – ($175)
  • Final out-of-pocket contribution – $325

Donations are used to staff our renter assistance programs, project pre-development analyses and public education and advocacy campaigns.
