Why should you support Habitat Greater SF?

Lasting Impact

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.

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. Quality, steady housing provides the basis for educational success as homeownership means an end to frequent moves, which can cause children to fall behind in school and impact their social and emotional well-being

An Organization You Can Trust

For the third year in a row, Habitat Greater San Francisco received a 4-star Charity Navigator rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency. This year, approximately 87 cents of every dollar contributed goes directly into home construction and other program services. Only 11% of the charities rated have received 3 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that we outperform most organizations in the United States. To read more about how we invest your generous gifts, please reference our 2013 Annual Report and audited financials.
