Why should you support Habitat Greater SF?
Your tax-deductible charitable donation will make a lasting impact on the lives of hard-working local families, providing the opportunity of homeownership and passing the keys to a brighter future. Because homeowner mortgage payments are used to help fund new partner family homes, each gift becomes a perpetual legacy of support.

Beyond Bricks and Mortar
Habitat homes provide far more than a roof overhead; they provide a foundation for families and children to succeed, becoming a stabilizing force for many local communities. Homeownership gives families the chance to establish financial security and roots in their communities—this is Habitat’s theory of change that we prove each and every day. Quality, steady housing provides the basis for educational success as well. For many families, homeownership means an end to frequent moves, which can cause children to fall behind in school and impact their social and emotional well-being.
We take stewardship of our donors’ contributions very seriously, which is why we’re proud that 82 cents of every dollar raised is used directly for program costs. Charity Navigator, an independent rating organization, has rated us four stars, their highest rating, for two consecutive years. They use strict standards to evaluate how responsible and efficient non-profits are with money. In addition to keeping our finances in order, we obtain an annual independent audit from a qualified accountant.
