Donate now for COVID19 relief & anti-racism arts organizing!
Nuestra Comunidad is helping Roxbury address two pandemics–COVID19 and racism. Your donation will help continue our food access work in 2020. Nuestra in two months provided 8,605 meals, using $63,880 in in-kind donations to help address food insecurity. We identified households least able to get enough food with 3,412 wellness calls, made by a team of volunteers and staff. Through these calls, we also referred 206 households to rental assistance agencies. In order to help sustain minority-owned businesses most impacted by the COVID19 crisis, Nuestra helped secure $23,000 in grants for businesses in Nubian Square.
Donating now can also support Nuestra’s Black Lives Matters arts initiative. In summer 2020 local artists will create significant arts statements in highly visible locations in Roxbury. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to see these in progress!
Any amount is welcome. If you donate $1,000 or more, the Massachusetts Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) provides a 50% state tax credit for donations to Nuestra Comunidad of more than $1000. If the credit exceeds your liability, then the state issues a payment for the balance of the credit. Donors can be individuals, corporations, or nonprofits. The full value of donations are also eligible for a federal charitable tax deduction.
To qualify for a 2020 tax credit, gifts must be received by December 31st. Be a critical part of meeting our neighbors’ immediate needs, giving local artists a venue and voice, catalyzing minority businesses in Nubian Square and keeping profit in Roxbury. Make your donation today and expand its impact.
