State Farm, a Habitat for Humanity partner since 1994, is donating $800,000 to Habitat to engage youth in home construction, neighborhood revitalization and disaster recovery activities. The funding will support more than 25 projects across the country.
Many of the projects will engage Habitat for Humanity chapters on high school and college campuses in raising matching funding amounts. Youth volunteers have raised an additional $40 million as part of this partnership component. Several additional projects will support youth efforts to help families impacted by disasters.
With more than $7.5 million in donations, State Farm has served as Habitat’s primary national corporate sponsor of Habitat’s youth programs since 2007. Local offices contribute more than $500,000 annually to Habitat affiliates across the United States and for the past two years, State Farm employees have awarded Habitat funds in honor of its Founder’s Day.
TD Ameritrade continues its commitment to Habitat by supporting eight build events across the U.S. in 2015.
TD Ameritrade employees, clients, families and friends will come together to work side by side with Habitat partner homeowners to help build or renovate their homes.
Since 2011, TD Ameritrade employees have volunteered more than 28,000 hours to help build or renovate homes. Last year, employees volunteered more than 6,400 hours with Habitat affiliates in eight cities.
