VALSPAR is a driving force behind A Brush with Kindness , Habitat for Humanity’s exterior Home Preservation program transforming neighborhoods by painting home exteriors and providing minor repairs and landscaping in partnership with low-income, disabled and senior homeowners.
As Habitat’s national paint partner, Valspar provided Habitat affiliates with 2.2 million gallons of paint through 2014, bringing total cash and paint donations to more than $60 million since 2002. In 2015, the Valspar Corporation announced a five-year pledge of $36 million in paint and funding to support Habitat for Humanity’s affordable housing work.
THRIVENT FINANCIAL continues its support of Habitat for Humanity by committing $12 million in 2015 to the Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity partnership, which provides funding and volunteers to help construct or repair homes across the globe.
The funding will support the construction of 121 homes, the repair of up to 450 homes and 120 worldwide trips through the three Thrivent Builds programs: Thrivent Builds Homes, Thrivent Builds Worldwide and Thrivent Builds Repairs.
Since the partnership’s inception in 2005, Thrivent Financial and its members have committed $213 million and 4.4 million volunteer hours to help create safe, decent and affordable housing with 4,000 Habitat families in 34 countries around the world.
STATE FARM employees recently awarded Habitat for Humanity $270,000 in funding as part of the company’s annual Founder’s Day celebration. The new funding builds on $800,000 that State Farm donated to Habitat earlier this year for 30 grants to help youth work with local Habitat affiliates and families. This is the eighth year State Farm has been the national corporate sponsor of Habitat’s Youth Programs  which are designed to engage youth and young adults in the organization’s work to eliminate poverty housing.
State Farm has supported Habitat for Humanity since 1994 and has served as the national corporate sponsor of Habitat’s youth programs since 2007. To date, more than half a million young people have been involved in Habitat’s work and more than $40 million have been raised as a direct result of State Farm donations of $6.7 million.
