What does my gift do?

DIY Lowell aims to make projects and events happen through leveraging the expertise of Lowell’s citizens and organizations. Even our winning project ideas may have funding gaps. So we help to procure and provide anything that our project groups can’t raise directly – including municipal fees and licenses, materials such as paint or plantings, or printing and marketing for community events.

Our webspace and event spaces are often donated. Much of our marketing is possible through in-kind donations and grant funding. Our team of volunteers works with our Executive Director to support residents year-round through projects and through other leadership development. Your donation is essential to our shared civic efforts.

Is it tax-deductible?

Yes! Here’s how it works: Coalition for a Better Acre, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to resident empowerment and sustainable community revitalization for current and future residents of Lowell and the Merrimack Valley, is DIY Lowell’s “fiscal agent.” They accept donations on our behalf and oversee disbursement of funds for DIY Lowell’s expenses.

Donations to DIY Lowell count towards Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) program. Donations of $1,000 or more to CBA (including for DIY Lowell) are eligible to receive 50% of the amount of the donation back as a state tax credit. For questions or more information about CITC, contact
