Gifts and in-kind donations of all sorts have helped us further our work, and brought opportunity and resources to families in need of a decent place to call home. Contributions large and small continue to make a difference, and we believe there is something every company can give to allow us to help even more families build better futures.
What are in-kind donations?
When organizations donate goods or services, those donations are considered gifts-in-kind. Habitat accepts large quantities of in-kind gifts like building materials, furniture, appliances and more. Our corporate partnerships help make our work at Habitat possible.
One of our most valued gifts-in-kind are the materials used to build homes. For example, in each one of the homes we build in Cabarrus County we require approximately 150 pounds of nails and 400 two-by-fours. With the average Habitat house of 1,200 square feet and three bedrooms, these numbers add up fast—so donations of building materials from corporate manufacturers are welcome!
Additionally, in some cases, retailers with overstock items donate those goods. Donations like these are usually sold in our Habitat ReStore home improvement stores, with the proceeds benefiting Habitat for Humanity. We have received donations from nationwide restaurant chain remodels, going out of business events and everything in between.
We enjoy working with corporations who want to donate building materials for home construction or overstock items for resale, so don’t hesitate to contact us about your desired donation.
