Workplace Giving


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.

Stock Donations

Donate a Car


Donating your vehicle is a great way to free up valuable space in your driveway while giving back to your community. Habitat’s Cars for Homes program makes donating your cars, trucks, RV’s, vans, SUV’s, boats, and motorcycles easy -- even if they don’t run!
