Double Your Donation! Community Investment Tax Credit 

Get half your donation back — take advantage of our Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) Program

We raised $200,000 in donations using all of our $100,000 in state tax credits for 2020! Stay tuned for 2021 when we get a new allocation of credits so you can get half your donation back through the CITC program for your 2021 gift.

As a certified Community Development Corporation, Wellspring receives Community Investment Tax Credits from the state of Massachusetts each year. Anyone giving a donation of $1,000 or more is eligible to receive half of that donation back in the form of a tax credit (if you owe state taxes) or cash if you don't owe state taxes. This applies to out-of-state folks as well. Contact Development Committee co-chair Kristan Bakker for credit availability.

Stock Donations

If you are fortunate enough to own non-cash assets (stocks, bonds, property), a great and easy way to support Wellspring is to donate stocks or bonds. These gifts don't incur the capital gains tax since you are transferring the asset, not selling it. NOTE: non-cash donations do not qualify for the Massachusetts CITC Program.

Let us know if you're interested. We work with Stakeholders Capital in Amherst, to handle donations of stocks and bonds to Wellspring Cooperative. They do this work pro bono, so we also want to acknowledge and deeply appreciate their generosity.
