What is a Gift-in-Kind donation?
When organizations donate goods or services, those donations are considered 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. We have the same construction and development costs as for-profit development companies. But as a non-profit organization, we rely on donations to get our housing projects off the ground and keep them affordable.
You can support our builds by donating new building materials, including drywall, lumber, nails, shingles or concrete. Other donation items might be safety equipment such as tools, steel-toed boots, hard hats, safety shoes, safety gloves and food for our our volunteers on our build sites. Donated skilled trades services might include HVAC, plumbing, bricklaying, landscaping, drywalling, roofing and more.
Donating to the ReStore is a great way to move discontinued or excess stock, deal with gently-used returns, and show your customers that you care about the environment and community. Donating these items not only gives Habitat product to fill our shelves, but also helps your company by clearing out your warehouse and avoiding paying to send items to the landfill.
Do I qualify for a charitable donation receipt?
You may qualify for a charitable donation receipt for the fair market value of your Gift-in-Kind donation.
Gifts of Service
We would not be able to create affordable housing without the donated and discounted services of local contracting companies. Gifts of services (time, skills, or work) do not qualify for a receipt. However, we may be able to issue an official receipt for income tax purposes if you provide a service to Habitat, Habitat pays for the service, and you then return the payment as a gift.
