partnerships

ways to partner with us
Habitat for Humanity brings community partners together – including volunteers, individual donors, the private sector and governments – to help working, lower income families build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership. When you partner with us to build safe, decent homes, you are building more than just the walls and roof of a home together, you’re constructing a solid foundation for families in your community on which to build a better life for themselves and their children.

families 

In our partnerships with families, we offer them the chance to build a brighter future for themselves and their children by helping them build and buy an affordable home of their own. They pay a mortgage to Habitat for Humanity and help build their home, volunteering 500 hours on a variety of Habitat projects.

donors

Cash contributions from individual donors make them invested partners in our work to help families build a brighter future through affordable home ownership. We count on this support to help us pay for land, building materials and the tradespeople needed to construct safe, decent Habitat homes. Make a donation and become a partner with us today!


government

One of the biggest expenses we face is the cost of acquiring land on which to build our safe, decent, affordable homes. In every community in which we build, Habitat for Humanity seeks support from local municipalities to help us improve the affordability of the homes we’re building through:

  • Donations of unused government owned land
  • Reduced or waived land transfer & development taxes and fees
  • Access to low-cost financing or one-time investments in social infrastructure projects
  • Broadened public sector investments in social housing beyond rental units to include affordable home ownership models

Contact Habitat for Humanity Ontario Gateway North’s team if you would like to discuss any of these partnership options.
