If you are able to do so, we kindly invite you to make a donation of any amount to support our ongoing construction projects and the empowerment of individuals and communities in Monroe County. To explore the possibility of your donation being matched by your employer, please use the search tool below. It will provide you with information on whether your company participates in a matching gift program, as well as access to the necessary forms, guidelines, and instructions to submit a matching gift.

Giving Societies

The More Than Houses Society is critical to our affiliate. The generous pledges from the More Than Houses Society help us cover costs associated with family services, volunteer support, land purchases, infrastructure development, and more. Individual and group members make a long-term commitment to give at least $1,000 per year for five years.

The  S.H.E. Society, was created to honor and challenge women+ builders who commit to raise at least $1,000 per year for 5 years. Members of S.H.E. Society will be recognized throughout the year for their efforts to support future Women+ Build house sponsorships and homeowners. All members also receive their own coveted pink hard hat and stickers to commemorate their years of membership.

The Habitat Groundbreakers commit to donate a set amount for each new Habitat home dedicated in Monroe County, providing the funds to kick-start the next Habitat build.

Each Groundbreaker will be notified when a Habitat home in Monroe County is dedicated with a request to contribute $50 towards the next Habitat home. We are currently building 8-12 homes annually.

Help sustain Habitat’s work in Monroe County by becoming a monthly supporter!

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.

If you would like to discuss a gift of stocks or bonds, please email us or call 812.331.4069.

House Sponsorships

House Sponsorship Program

Through our Home Sponsorship program, companies help Habitat meet our two greatest needs—the need for funding and the need for volunteers.

There are a variety of different engagement levels – from a Legacy Builder who sponsors the full cost of construction and land o $150,000, to an adopt-a-day for a small group at $1,500.

All sponsorships include benefits such as social media and online recognition, inclusion in a local Bloomington advertisement and/or press release, and recognition in Habitat’s annual report and More Than Houses event.

Sponsors are the key to Habitat’s success. 

House sponsorships are a great way to foster team-building among your corporation, faith community, student group, and community group. You’ll enjoy a fun-filled day working alongside future homeowners and other community volunteers – creating a sense of unity among friends and neighbors. Our team will work with you to schedule ideal volunteer days on the construction site and/or our ReStore.

Building a home is a big investment, and your support makes it possible for our future homeowners. Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible support from donors like you, Habitat homes are sold to future homeowners and financed with affordable loans. As homeowners pay back their mortgage, the funds are reinvested in our program in order to offer future families an opportunity for homeownership.
