We cannot build affordable housing without your help

Habitat relies on support from individual, business, as well as foundation partners, lending your financial support directly results in the opportunity for low-income families to realize their dream of homeownership. As we continue in our mission to create a decent place to live for every Washington County resident, your continued support is appreciated.

Land Donations

Land acquisition is a costly piece of the home building process. A top priority of Habitat is to identify and secure land for future projects. You can help in the following ways:

  • Make a tax-deductible donation of a vacant lot to be turned into a forever home
  • Make a partial donation of land. That is – you make a tax-deductible donation of land and Habitat pays a percentage of the value of land.
  • Donate a house in need of renovation. Habitat considers donations or purchase of housed that need renovation.
  • Partner with Habitat on a “mixed income” development, which blends market-rate and Habitat homes.
  • Tell friends and associates that Habitat acquires vacant land and houses.

Cars for Homes

Have an old unneeded car, truck, boat, or other vehicle sitting in your driveway, or taking up space in your garage? Consider donating it to Habitat for Humanity through Cars for Homes.

Planned Giving

Tomorrow’s results are created by today’s dreamers. Many people dream of a way to help Habitat grow in the future.  Some find that a good way to accomplish that is to designate Habitat for Humanity of Washington County Maryland as the beneficiary of all or part of your estate, retirement plan, or life insurance policy.

As you plan gifts for family and friends, consider a gift that keeps on giving long after the wedding, anniversary, birthday, graduation, holiday, or other special events.
