It’s a valuable source of funding that means Habitat for Humanity will be able to meet the housing needs of future generations.
How does that make a difference? After moving into their safe, stable Habitat home, 47% of Habitat homeowners in Southern Alberta report that their children are doing better in school.

Your estate is heavily taxed after you pass – up to 25%. Leaving a donation in your will can reduce the tax owed by your estate considerably.
The exact value of the tax credits for your charitable donation will be calculated based on your income in the year the donation is claimed.
Your estate will receive a donation receipt for the amount of your gift, reducing – or even eliminating – final taxes.
That means that the amount left to your loved ones won’t be diminished due to the tax credit your gift provides.
