Building Fund

You and your organization have the opportunity to be a part of a family’s journey toward a new life. How involved is up to you. With a contribution through this program you may choose be a Event Sponsor, GMHFH Sponsor or House Sponsor.

The generosity and ongoing support of area businesses and organization have always made our success possible. Donations of cash, building materials, and other gifts-in-kind, as well as many hours of volunteer labor, come together to make dreams come true!

Becoming a member of the Habitat team means supporting our community. However you choose to get involved, we appreciate your support!


Gifts-In-Kind

Gifts-In-Kind are donations of goods, supplies or labor. These donations help with everything from support in the office to contractors on the building site. Gifts-In-Kind allow companies to support Habitat in a way that is meaningful to them. A large number of our corporate supporters do so through GIK donations. Some examples of Gifts-In-Kind include:

  • donations of building materials to complete a house
  • labor from contractors
  • gift cards for stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc.
  • services from industry professionals like engineers, lawyers, accountants
  • use of commercial spaces such as office space, halls or storage spaces
  • lunches for volunteers on build days

Please email fundraising@habitatmanchester.org or call the office at (603) 626-3944 to make a Gift In Kind donation!.


Monetary Donations

One of the easiest ways to support Habitat is through a monetary donation. Greater Manchester Habitat for Humanity is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, so your gift is tax-deductible. Your donations will help us give a hand up to people right here in the Greater Manchester area, allowing us to purchase materials needed to build a home. It also allows us to hire contractors to do specialized work such as electrical, plumbing and paving.

Almost all donations go directly into our housing projects. Your donation will truly have an impact and will go towards purchasing needed items like those listed in the Quick Gift Guide. You can donate online using our secure PayPal site, where you can contribute a one-time donation or set up a monthly payment to help us now and in the future. Or, you can send us a check in the mail at the address listed below:

GMHFH does many events throughout the year from small events such as pancake breakfasts to large events like Take a Hike for Humanity. With the support and sponsorships of local businesses, we are able to put more of the money raised toward our programs. Event Sponsorships range from $50 - $5000 depending on the scale of the event. Benefits typically include name and/or logo in marketing materials and Event programs and the right to promote your organization as a Habitat Event Sponsor.

In addition to monetary sponsorships, Gifts-In-Kind donations also make our events successful. Past event GIK donations have included items such as:

  • Raffle and auction items
  • Gift cards for stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc.
  • Use of commercial spaces like halls or private dining rooms
  • Food or grocery items

If you would like to be considered for an Event Sponsorship, please let us know, and we will contact you with opportunities.

Create Your Own

We realize that “one size doesn’t fit all”. We would be happy to design a program specifically for you. Pledges of $10,000 or more can be fulfilled in a single payment or over time. We would be happy to work with you on a plan. It takes many to make this happen, so think about other organizations that may join you on this road.

Corporate Team Building Days

Would you like to engage your employees in some hard labor, while also doing good? Consider signing up a group for a Corporate Team Build Day. Many businesses in the Greater Manchester area have participated in our Corporate Team Building Days. Community involvement plus employee engagement equals improved productivity. Corporate Team Building Days create an environment of caring and cooperation, build a balanced team, and increase the sense of community.

The cost of a Team Build Day with GMHFH is just your time and effort along with a small tax-deductible donation of $1500, which covers up to 15 participants. It’s an affordable team-building exercise that won’t strain your budget.
