Invest in Your Community

Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C. provides decent, affordable homes to families in need. Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity has built and sold over 300,000 houses worldwide for more than 1.5 million people. Your tax-deductible donation is an investment in our community that will change the course of families’ lives for generations. And as our homebuyers repay their 25-year, interest-free mortgages, the returns go directly into the Fund for Humanity to keep building more homes. There are so many ways to contribute as an individual. Scroll down to learn more about how you can support Habitat’s work.

Workplace Giving

Workplace giving campaigns are easy ways for employees to give regularly to the non-profits they support. Here are just a few of the advantages:

  • Convenience: Your donation is deducted automatically from each paycheck so you don’t have to remember to give!
  • Tax Benefits: All donation made through workplace giving programs are tax deductible, just like other charitable donations.
  • It’s easy to give more! By making a small donation every time you receive a paycheck, you can donate more and have a greater overall impact. A $40 donation deducted from your paycheck twice a month adds up to an annual donation of almost $1000!
  • Matching Gifts: Some employers offer to match your contributions, making your donation go twice as far.
  • Cost-efficient: Workplace giving is more cost-effective and efficient for charities to raise funds than other fundraising methods. Your donation enables charities to spend more time and resources on services and programs rather than elaborate fundraising.
