In Kind Gifts

Gifts of Land

As the need for affordable housing continues to grow, securing land for homes for the families on our waiting list becomes more challenging. If you are aware of a parcel of land in the county that may be available, we’d like to talk to you.

When we’re able, we purchase land at fair appraisal value. You can help create affordable housing in our community by contacting us if you know of available property or are interested in donating or selling property.

Email us or call 812-331-4069 for more information.

You can set up your payment through a credit card or a bank account transfer and your donation will be charged or transferred around the same time each month. We will send you an annual giving receipt for tax purposes in January each year.

Stock & Bond Gifts

A charitable gift of stock or bonds can help make the dream of homeownership a reality for deserving family while also providing tax savings for you.

A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation.
