Reasons to Give


Every gift makes a difference. Every dollar helps Habitat build homes, community and hope here in the Capital District. Here are some of the reasons we think a gift to Habitat is a wise investment.

Lasting Impact

Your tax-deductible charitable donation will make a lasting impact on the lives of local families in need of good housing. Because we reinvest all of our home sales back into our homebuilding program, each gift you make becomes an ongoing legacy of support. The homes that Habitat builds are affordable and sustainable, meaning that they provide Habitat homeowners with stability and savings far into the future.

An Organization You Can Trust


At Habitat for Humanity Capital District, we accept every donation with humble gratitude and make every effort to use donor dollars wisely with a strong sense of fiscal responsibility. We strive to use contributions efficiently and effectively, investing the vast majority of donor dollars (90%) into our homebuilding and programs. Habitat for Humanity Capital District is a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business and a GuideStar Exchange Silver Level Participant, which is awarded in recognition of our commitment to accountability and transparency.
