6 Degrees of the Acre

You are invited to travel with CBA to the heart of the Acre on Thursday, June 29th at 4:30 p.m. We’ll be taking you on a “mini-vacation” to the historic St. Patrick’s Church for a fun, casual, outdoor event...and we would love your support! 

Coalition for a Better Acre is celebrating over 40 years of grassroots change to create a safe, welcoming, and abundant community while sustaining neighborhood diversity.  

 Since 1982, CBA has developed 529 affordable residential units housing hundreds in our historically disadvantaged neighborhoods. Programs have been created to foster economic self-sufficiency, leadership skills, and a healthy quality of life. CBA is exponentially growing to respond to the expressed needs of the community. We knock on doors, host neighborhood gatherings, make voices heard, and build lasting relationships that embrace the language and cultural differences of our community. 

The Acre is an anchor for many people, whether your ancestors grew up there, you played in North Common, or worked your first job – hence 6 Degrees of the Acre. You can strengthen your connection to CBA by sponsoring the 6 Degrees of the Acre event. 

It is important to note that CBA is one of a select few organizations who can offer sponsors the Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC). The MA Department of Housing and Community Development offers this special incentive as a tax credit valued at 50% of your gift of $1,000 or more. Sponsorship levels and CITC details are enclosed. 

Please know your support makes a difference for all members of the CBA family, from long-time residents to newcomers from around the globe. For more information on sponsorship opportunities, please contact Shamir Rivera-Quintal at info@cbacre.org or 978-483-0010. Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to seeing you on June 29th!
