Support Our Work in DC and Abroad

DC Habitat’s mission is to provide decent, affordable homes for hard-working, low-income families. And the number of houses we build each year depends upon the money we raise.  Our sustainability relies on the vital combination of funds and volunteer labor provided by our supporters.

A team build in action.

A team build in action.

By partnering with DC Habitat, companies can work hand-in-hand with us to provide affordable shelter for those in need – both here in the Nation’s Capital and our partner locations in Central America.  In return, we provide our corporate partners with valuable benefits, including tax deductions, public relations efforts in conjunction with our well-established brand and team build opportunities that boost company morale.

In-Kind Contributions

DC Habitat also relies on the generous donation of in-kind materials to help us build more homes – ranging from construction materials to professional services to donated advertising space. Benefits are available depending upon the value of the in-kind contribution. Those in-kind donations valued at $50,000 or higher receive Community Partnerships Campaign benefits equivalent to half of the value of the in-kind donation.


Contact

For more information, or to become a DC Habitat sponsor, please contact the Marketing and Development Director by phone at (202) 882-4600 x223 or by email at Heather.Phibbs@dchabitat.org.

If your company is unable to commit the funds required for one of these sponsorship levels, you may want to consider getting involved in a single team build day. Learn more about these opportunities in our Volunteer section.
