Your Gift Can Make Twice the Impact this GivingTuesday!
Our goal is to provide homes to families with incomes at or below 60% of the HUD area gross medium income. Due to their income level, these individuals are ineligible for traditional mortgages and would not be able to achieve homeownership.
Make a Habitat house truly a home for one of our families!
This GivingTuesday, East Cooper Habitat for Humanity has a committed match up to $20,000! Every dollar you donate will go towards this goal. It is urgent we help more low income families East of the Cooper River achieve homeownership and together we can reach this goal.
Ever wonder what your donation provides? It's more than just supplies, its an entirely new life for our families:
$25 buys a box of nails, providing strength and stability to the structure of a new home.
$50 buys a faucet for a family to wash dishes in their new kitchen after a shared meal.
$100 buys an interior door for a child to do homework in the quiet of their own room.
$250 can help landscape the yard where children and parents can garden and play.
$500 buys light fixtures throughout the home, brightening our families' lives.
As always, you can customize your gift to whatever amount you are comfortable giving because every donation matters in the mission to end housing insecurity in our community. Curious what else you can provide with your customized gift?
$15 provides a hard hat for our construction crew and volunteers to work safely.
$75 buys a bedroom window, bringing sunshine and fresh air into a home.
$300 provides tools for our construction efforts, ensuring that the build is just right.
$750 provides a refrigerator, allowing a family to eat fresher food.
$1,000 helps buy trusses for the roof, to give a new home support and security.
Studies have shown that there is a very strong correlation between homeownership and a
family’s ability to break the “cycle of poverty” in which many low income families find themselves. Every donation we receive helps our families break that cycle. A safe and
reliable home leads to improved employment stability, better health and better grades in school for children. With your help this GivingTuesday, we can transform more families and set them on a path for happier, healthier lives, starting with a safe roof over their heads.
