There is an enormous need in the southern Berkshires for housing that is affordable for our local employees and for new jobs for our younger generation. Take advantage of these outstanding tax benefits with a donation to CDCSB to support our work in affordable housing and job creation and make a difference in the lives of fellow community members.

Land Donations

Identifying appropriate land is paramount to developing smart affordable housing in the southern Berkshires. The CDCSB has worked closely with towns and open space organizations to locate available and appropriate sites for housing. Two great success stories are:

  • the Stockbridge Land Trust identified and secured the Pinewoods site for 30 housing units
  • the Town of Great Barrington identified and donated the Hillside Avenue housing site for ten units

Similar to land trusts, donations of real estate to the CDC for affordable housing development are tax deductible. Please contact us with your ideas or for more information.

Planned Gifts

For information about making a bequest or a planned gift to the CDC of South Berkshire, please call the Director of Development at 413-528-7788 for further information or a personal meeting.

All donations to the CDCSB are fully tax deductible.

Gifts in kind are also gratefully accepted.

Equity Investing

Invest locally.
Invest for the planet.
Invest for a solid financial return.

CDCSB projects are an excellent opportunity for triple bottom line investing. Your equity will go to work locally, building “green” and low-carbon footprint development for healthy and sustainable communities, and your investment will yield a real financial return. Join us in creating a sustainable future today.

Today’s opportunity: 100 Bridge Street redevelopment project, the former New England Log Home Site.
