Why donate to Habitat?

Virtually nowhere in the U.S. can a full-time minimum wage employee afford even a one-room apartment. At Habitat for Humanity, we know that having a home changes everything. The need for affordable housing is immense, and the lasting impact it can have on families is undeniable. We believe in a world where everyone has a quality place to live. A safe, affordable home offers families and individuals the opportunity to take care of themselves and build their own futures.

Corporate Sponsorship

Stryker-Team-Build.jpg

House Sponsorship

The ultimate in corporate assistance to HfHCC's low‑income building program is funding and building a Habitat house. Ideally, the corporation would donate, completely fund or solicit all the necessary building materials for the specified house. Volunteers from the corporation would be the primary work crew involved in the construction of the house. Variations on this option would include just financial support for construction of a complete house, or joining with another corporation in a partnership where each company would fund one‑half of the house.

Event Sponsorship

From time to time, Habitat sponsors events to raise funds to meet operating costs and purchase supplies. Companies can assist with such programs by agreeing to underwrite an event. Such sponsorships represent the opportunity for associated marketing and public relations. An event sponsor is asked to meet the budgeted out‑of‑pocket expenses involved with the event or a specific component of the event’s budget. In turn, the firm is listed in all event publicity as a sponsor.

If you have questions about becoming a sponsor or to make your donation by other means, please contact Liz Price, our Corporate & Donor Relations Director at

Build a legacy of hope!

Your planned gift can be the key that unlocks amazing opportunities and potential for families in our community. After decades of proven success, Habitat for Humanity of Chester County is ready to put your generosity to work, building a legacy of affordable homeownership for years to come.

"We were introduced to Habitat for Humanity in the 1980's through our church's involvement. Quickly we championed its mission and started our years of support by financial gifts and labor in home construction. Decent housing/home ownership is a hallmark of a strong and compassionate society. A Fall 2022 communication from Chester County Habitat lifted up "charitable gift annuities" (CGA) as a support option. Local staff skillfully and pleasantly walked us through the advantages and ease of establishing a CGA. We decided it was an ideal way to undergird Chester County Habitat beyond our lives, and secondarily, offered an attractive income return within our lifetimes along with some tax advantages. We feel blessed to be able to support HFHCC in this manner."

– The Boell's, December 2022

What is a tithe?

Habitat for Humanity is a global partnership with hundreds of affiliates pledged to help everyone wherever they are. Affiliates are required to contribute a portion of their incomes to international work so that we can build decent, affordable housing all over the world. 

Your generous donations help more than just our community, they help across the globe. With so many ways to donate, we can continue our mission because of you!

Advocate

Advocacy means supporting and promoting a cause you believe in.

At Habitat for Humanity, we advocate to change policies and systems so that we can eliminate barriers to adequate, affordable housing. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

What does it mean to "advocate"?

Building is part of the solution, but the less visible aspects of housing like laws, regulations, systems and rules about land and the built environment are critical components, too. Sustainable and inclusive policies and systems can promote access to decent housing, while others can create barriers. And those barriers make it harder to find land for construction, build a home or be able to afford a place to live.

Habitat’s approach to advocacy is based on decades of on-the-ground experience and policy expertise. From our deep understanding of housing and its central role in providing opportunities for families, we work to reform laws in a non-confrontational, nonpartisan way.

How can you advocate?

In 2019, Habitat for Humanity International launched a five-year campaign to mobilize local Habitat organizations, partners, volunteers and community members across the country. Through this Cost of Home campaign, we are finding the solutions and helping to create the policies that will allow 10 million individuals to have access to stable, affordable homes.

Cost of Home has already helped more than 6.45 million people access stable, affordable homes through our advocacy to influence policies at the local, state and federal level. But we haven’t reached our goal — yet. That’s why we need you to join us!
