Legacy giving is a lasting gift to Habitat that impacts your local community for generations to come. Whether you write us into your will or trust, designate us as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or IRA, or set up a charitable gift annuity, you’ll be leaving a ripple effect of change felt far into the future. Together, we can create a plan that meets the needs of your family while making the greatest impact beyond your lifetime.
Here is some sample language to get you started: “I, [insert name], of [insert city, state, and zip], bequeath to Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley (tax ID number: 94-3053687), a nonprofit organization located at 2619 Broadway, Oakland, California 94612, [insert amount or percentage of estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

Many Bay Area companies allow their employees to give through the workplace. Workplace giving is an easy way to make a profound difference with regular contributions through payroll deductions and employee giving campaigns. These contributions add up to real change for local families. Your company may even match your donations and volunteer hours. Contact your employer to find out if they have an existing giving campaign and how you can direct your contribution to Habitat.
By donating appreciated stocks directly to Habitat, you will avoid paying the capital gains tax, receive a full tax deduction for the fair market trade value of your gift, and leave a deepened impact in your local community. Donating stock is an easy way to make a lasting difference.
By choosing to give on a monthly basis, you become a part of our Carpenter’s Club -- a special group of committed donors who give on a recurring basis. Monthly giving makes the greatest impact with your donation dollars by allowing us to better plan where your gift will do the most good. Carpenter’s Club members also receive a variety of different benefits throughout the year in appreciation for your commitment to affordable housing.

Habitat for Humanity ReStores turn your donations of furniture, home accessories, building materials, and appliances into affordable homeownership for Bay Area families. As Habitat’s home improvement and donation centers, ReStores sell your home good donations at a fraction of the retail price, keeping materials out of landfills and raising money to help us create a community where everyone have a decent place to live.
“Homeownership is important for my family because moving around is difficult with small children, and my kids need a stable, secure place to live.”
Bianca, Habitat Homeowner
