Just Two Weeks Left in 2014. Can You Help?

By on December 18, 2014

Please consider a year-end donation to Lawrence CommunityWorks to support the work we are doing turning vacant lots into beautiful homes, helping parents and youth taking leadership roles in their schools, helping immigrant families become proud home owners and learn English, and more. We welcome and appreciate donations of any size!


There is also a SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY for those who can stretch and give a little more. An investment in a community development corporation, like Lawrence CommunityWorks, not only supports the transformation of a community but also can return 50% of your donation via the Massachusetts Community Investment Tax Credits.

  • Open to all who file a tax return in Massachusetts – individual, corporations, or businesses
  • Credit is equal to 50% of the total qualified investment made by the taxpayer
  • Minimum investment of $1,000 and maximum investment of $1,000,000
  • Excess tax credit is REFUNDABLE – even if you owe no taxes or live out of state
  • Balance of the donation is still deductible on your federal taxes

More detail about the Tax Credit is here.

Please make checks payable to Lawrence CommunityWorks and mail to us:

Lawrence CommunityWorks
168 Newbury Street
Lawrence, MA 01841
Attn: Resource Development

Any questions, please give us a call 978-685-3115. We also accept credit cards over the phone.

A Celebration for our Adult Education Students, IDA Graduates and Recent Homeowners!
