Land/ Real Estate Donations- Finding affordable land to build on is one of our greatest challenges. By making a charitable donation of land, you will help us by eliminating what is often one of the most expensive aspects of building a home. This will allow us to build more homes for deserving families.

Donated real estate may also be deducted as a charitable contribution. Please consult with your tax accountant to determine what tax benefits may be available.

Another option is to sell a building site to Habitat at a reduced price. A charitable contribution deduction may also be available in this situation, so please check with your accountant.
