volunteer. buy. thrive.
Habitat’s common sense approach works. Lifting a family out of poverty and setting them on a course for success doesn’t happen overnight, but it can be done with your help. Your unrestricted support gives Habitat Lehigh Valley the ability to use funds when and where they are most needed, and where they can be leveraged for strongest impact. Your unrestricted dollars keep our mission moving by funding such expenses as:
SHARED SERVICES that sustain the key programmatic work of our affiliate including volunteer management, construction supervision, family services,accounting technology ,general staffing, facilities and overall management of the organization.
CAPACITY BUILDING that drives Habitat Lehigh Valley and accelerates our mission, not only in the Lehigh Valley area, but worldwide. Unrestricted dollars enable us to expand our services to more deserving families through such programs as the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative and more specifically our newly launched “Brush with Kindness” program.
Please remember to support us during the year with your generous donations as well as through United Way and company matching programs.
Contributions to the Annual Fund make up a significant portion of the funding for Habitat LV. In 2016 these funds equated to 15% of the overall budget. Your support of the Annual fund will ensure that you get newsletters and updates on our progress.
