Habitat’s program is powered by the strength of our partnerships. Businesses small and large partner with Habitat for Humanity Capital District to make a tangible difference in our community. From project sponsorship to matching employee contributions, companies are making a significant difference by helping Habitat to build a safe and decent homes for families in need.
By partnering with Habitat, companies receive many valuable benefits, including local volunteer opportunities, access to Habitat for Humanity’s brand (valued at $3 billion) and strategic marketing exposure in the Capital District community. Corporate social responsibility programs allow sponsors to engage their employees in a meaningful teambuilding experience where they can help build homes in partnership with lower-income families. Companies are able to enhance their social return on investment by empowering families to be self-sufficient and building permanent solutions to the growing need for affordable housing in our region.
Project sponsorship is the perfect way for your company, school, foundation, faith group or club to support Habitat’s home building program. Your sponsorship will go directly toward our project construction costs, helping to build or rehabilitate affordable homes and strengthen neighborhoods in the Capital District.
