  • Ninety-three percent say it is important for their companies to provide them with opportunities to become involved in social issues.
  • A partnership with Habitat for Humanity is an ideal way to make a meaningful connection to a worthy cause.
  • Partnering with Habitat allows companies and employees to fight poverty housing in areas which they care about most. Habitat for Humanity works in over 1,400 communities in the United States and in nearly 90 countries worldwide.

Investing in a Habitat family creates a brighter future for the children in Habitat homes.
Did you know that children who live in inadequate housing have lower educational achievement and are more likely to be impoverished and unemployed as adults? The good news is that, according to the Harvard Center on Housing, a dollar invested in housing has a greater impact on a child’s long-term well-being than a dollar invested in health or education. 

You can make the difference that breaks the cycle of poverty that cripples so many families. 
The Gift that Builds is a program that enables companies and employees to support the families that Habitat for Humanity serves. The program creates opportunities for employees to learn about the risks of substandard housing, donate in support of our work or volunteer as part of the solution.

Whether you want to start a new program or add Habitat to your company’s existing giving campaign, The Gift that Builds provides the tools you need. For more information, follow one of the links below:
