Monthly giving 

As a member of the Carpenter's Club, you will help us build all year long.

Your monthly Carpenter's Club gift guarantees Habitat regular and predictable funds, which allows us to better plan our construction schedule and to make commitments to new homebuilding projects in our community. 

The Carpenter's Club helps us meet the Capital District's housing need efficiently and effectively. Since we know we can count on receiving your support every month, we are able to minimize our fundraising costs. After your initial donation, identical payments will be repeated on the same day of each subsequent month. You can manage or cancel your recurring donations.

The benefits of joining the Carpenter's Club:

It's convenient. Each month your gift is automatically transferred from your credit card or bank account to Habitat. There are no checks to write or letters to mail. You will receive a year-end tax receipt for your cumulative contributions. 

Easy on your budget. You can make smaller, more manageable monthly gifts that, when added up over the course of a year, have a huge impact. 

You're always in control. You can increase, decrease, or stop your gift at any time through your online donor dashboard or by calling our office.

Brings you closer to the families and neighborhoods we serve. As a Carpenter's Club member, you are invited to join us on the build site for hands-on construction and house tours. You will also receive an exclusive quarterly update, The Carpenter's Corner, full of images and articles about Habitat's work in the Capital District and around the world.
