When you support CBA, you are helping to make our communities a better place to live and work. Your donations go directly to help CBA develop affordable housing, prevent foreclosure of families' homes, clean up neighborhoods, reduce crime, convert vacant, drug-infested lots into community gardens, and so much more.

Double Your Money. Donate Today.

For a limited time, your donation counts double!

The Massachusetts Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) provides a 50% state tax credit for donations of $1,000 or more to CBA. If the credit exceeds your liability, the state refunds the balance of the credit. CBA has $80,000 in tax credits available for donors, who can be individuals, corporations, or nonprofits. Donations are also eligible for a federal charitable tax deduction.
