Leave a Legacy


Legacy giving is a lasting gift to Habitat EBSV 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.”

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.
