Invest in a brighter future.
We live in a great community but the need for affordable housing is at an all-time high in Brantford, Brant County and Norfolk County. At Habitat Heartland Brant-Norfolk, we bring communities together to build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership. We’ve seen the transformative power of homeownership for a better life, but we can’t do this work alone. We need support from caring and generous people like you to donate funds and gifts-in-kind of land and material. There are so many ways in which you can help support a better, brighter future. Every donation, no matter what the size, is an investment in strengthening your community and changing the future for children and families. Your donation will help us make a safe, decent home a reality for local families. Thank you for your generous support!
Our ReStores help us to cover our administrative and fundraising costs, meaning that your donations can go directly to supporting homes for families.
The easiest and fastest way to make a donation is to use our online platform. You can even choose precisely where you’d like your donations to go, and know that you were directly supporting the builds in your community.
Through our platform we also offer – and encourage – the option to become a monthly donor. When you become a monthly donor, your gift provides consistent and stable funding that lets us make long term plans for building safe and affordable homes.
If you prefer to make your donation by cheque, please mail or visit us at 80 Morton Ave East, Brantford Ontario N3R 7J7

Help us bring hope to future generations of families in housing need. Through your support, you make it possible for Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario Brant-Norfolk Chapter to reach families in your community who need hope and a helping hand. By giving through your estate or long-term financial plans, you forge a life legacy and ensure that later generations have access to decent, safe and affordable housing.
Anyone may make a planned gift in support of Habitat for Humanity — all it requires is careful consideration of your personal needs and choosing a planned giving vehicle that works best for you.

Bequests – Maximizing Your Gift

The amount of your bequest is 100% deductible against your income in the year of your death and can be credited against income in the year prior to death, thus reducing your estate’s tax burden.
