Donor poll demonstrates Habitat for Humanity’s sound stewardship
AMERICUS, Ga., May 3, 2004 – In a Donor Approval Poll conducted by Campbell Research, Inc., Habitat for Humanity was named one of five Christian ministries considered by donors to be "doing the best job."
The February 2004 poll surveyed Americans who have donated to Christian charities within the last two years to determine which organizations are considered best in accomplishing their faith-based mission.
Joining Habitat as 2004 Donor Approval Award winners are Focus on the Family, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Campus Crusade for Christ and Samaritan's Purse. Habitat for Humanity International won a similar honor in 2003.
"It is through donor support that the dream of a decent, affordable home has become a reality for hundreds of thousands of people across the world," said Millard Fuller, founder and president of Habitat for Humanity International.
"We take seriously our stewardship of financial contributions to the ministry and are humbled by how the Lord has multiplied these resources for our global work."
The 2004 Donor Approval Award Poll surveyed more than 630 contributors to Christian organizations. Campbell Research has conducted marketing research studies for nationally known donor-driven and member-driven organizations since 1990.
Habitat for Humanity International is a Christian ministry dedicated to eliminating poverty housing. Founded in 1976 by Millard Fuller, along with his wife, Linda, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliates in more than 3,000 communities in 92 nations have built and sold more than 150,000 homes to partner families with no-profit, zero-interest mortgages. www.habitat.org
