Month to month, many families are faced with choosing between necessities like paying rent and buying food due to high housing costs. A monthly gift provides family's the opportunity to purchase a Habitat home -- and your impact is often greater over time.
“I used to give once at the end of the year until I learned about the monthly giving program. For me, giving a lump sum at Christmas time is financially harder than contributing a smaller amount on a monthly basis.”

“Giving once a month allows me to increase the amount of my donation overall in a more manageable way.”
Lots of things, like paying your insurance, is broken down to a monthly cost so it’s more manageable. A lot of us, especially those in our twenties, live paycheck to paycheck. If that’s you, then a donation will come more easily out of your paycheck than from your savings at the end of the year.
As a non-profit, one of the biggest things we depend on is consistency so that we can continue to help families. By becoming a monthly donor you are helping Habitat plan better while reducing administration costs related to payment processing and tax receipting and focus on fundraising less to help families more.
As a monthly donor you are building more strength and stability in partnership with families. We ask you to consider becoming one of these exceptional individuals, who we fondly call Habitat for Humanity Homies.
As a Homie, you will enjoy:
- The knowledge that your donation is put to work immediately.
- An annual statement provided for tax purposes.
- The ability to change or suspend your donation at any time.
- Automatic donation payment from your credit card or checking account.
