The added value of tithing

The goal of Habitat for Humanity is to eliminate poverty housing worldwide. The tithe program was created to give affiliates a way to impact Habitat´s global ministry in addition to impacting the need in their local communities. Tithing gives affiliates an opportunity to share their resources with developing countries throughout the world, and to have both a global and a local homebuilding program. By supporting Habitat´s work outside of the U. S., your affiliate or campus chapter can make it possible to achieve a world where someday, everyone will have a good place to call home.

This is what you can do

Establish a tithe partnership with countries in Africa & the Middle East. The tithe program can be an exciting addition to your local homebuilding program. Use your tithe as a way to promote the impact your affiliate is having on substandard housing globally. 100% of tithe gifts are sent to the country your affiliate designates to.

For almost all countries in Africa & the Middle East, raising money locally is very difficult or impossible therefore tithe is often the major contributor to overall funds raised for their programs. Your tithe can help us maintain and grow our programs and serve more needy families on the other side of the world.
