DONOR FAQ and Policy

“What a blessing our little home has been to my daughter
and I. She worked very hard and graduated class valedictorian.
Then she went to the University of Michigan and graduated
with honors. Now she’s at Columbia Law!”

Donor Policy
 

How can I donate?

There are many ways to donate. Since you’re already on our website, the easiest way may be to donate online. You can also donate by mail or in person.
Please make checks payable to Habitat for Humanity of Kent County and deliver to 425 Pleasant St. SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.

Can I donate something other than money?

Certainly! Habitat Kent is always in need of materials, services and land for our building projects. These gifts-in-kind keep construction costs low and homeowner mortgages affordable. Click here to learn more about donating gifts-in-kind.
You can also donate building supplies and home improvement items—everything from tools to appliances to furniture—at our Habitat ReStores. Your ReStore donations will be sold to the public at discount prices and proceeds will support our home builds. Click here to learn more about ReStore.

What percentage of my gift actually funds Habitat houses?

We’re committed to using your gift to support our mission. Last year we spent 89% of revenue on construction, rehab, and renovation program costs. That means 9 cents of every dime you give will be spent on building homes and building hope.

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Yes, we send an acknowledgement letter for each gift received with the information needed to claim a deduction on your tax return.

Can I donate towards a specific house or project?

Yes. When you donate, you can specify your gift for a particular special build or initiative. You can also sponsor a house by giving to and working on that house. House sponsorships can cover a single day of service or fund an entire house.

Can I make Habitat a part of my will?

Yes, there are many options for planned and deferred giving. We would be happy to discuss those options with your personally. Please contact Barbara Benda at (616) 588-5229.

I’ve heard some employers match donations. Does that apply to me?

Many generous employers do match charitable donations. To learn more about matching gifts and to see if your employer offers this service, click here.
