Habitat for Humanity works on a simple principle: that access to safe, decent and affordable housing is a basic human right, and that affordable homeownership not only strengthens families, it improves entire communities. And the need has never been greater.
When you support Habitat for Humanity with a donation, we never stop using your dollar – it is invested in homes, together with partner families’ mortgage payments to provide for future homes, making affordable homeownership an opportunity for more families. Your support is an investment in Canadian families, with an impact that can span generations.
We use volunteers and in-kind donations to keep building costs as low as possible, and our ReStore operation – which sells new and gently-used donated home furnishings and renovation materials – covers our administrative and fundraising costs, meaning that your donor dollar goes even further.

Your monthly donation provides consistent and stable funding that lets us make long term plans of building safe and affordable homes. It’s a gift of hope that will have an impact that lasts generations.
We pride ourselves on building affordably, effectively and efficiently. If you’re an experienced skilled trades professional or home builder, or have new material or land you’re interested in donating, please connect with us and help to keep our build costs low.
Whether you’re interested in giving back to your local community, motivating and engaging your group or team, or building awareness through a cause marketing initiative, we’ll work with you to create a customized partnership plan that meets your strategic giving objectives.
