We believe in developing mutually beneficial partnerships with companies interested in supporting affordable homeownership opportunities.

Whether you want to bring a cause to your office, bring your team to an experience, or bring attention to your brand, we’ll work with you to provide an experience that achieves your goals and allows your company to unite philanthropic, marketing, and human resources investments.

There are many ways to partner with Habitat, but all have the same result: your team can rally around a cause that impacts them and their families, and, by working together, we build homes, communities, and hope that will last for generations in San Diego County.

Gifts-in-kind make a difference

Donated products are essential for construction of San Diego Habitat homes and the continued operation of our discount home improvement retail centers — the ReStores. If your company has construction materials, home improvement items, furniture, or appliances you’d be willing to donate, those items are considered equal to a monetary contribution, and our team would be happy to provide a partnership package and benefits that align with your donation.

Make your donation work even harder

San Diego Habitat also offers opportunities to invest in our builds and our mortgage holdings! Our Homebuilding Investment Fund allows companies to provide upfront construction project capital funding and receive a modest return on the investment when homes are sold. Also, our banking partners can maximize Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) credits by purchasing San Diego Habitat mortgages and allowing us to leverage those funds to build homes.

Together, we can both build stronger brands — while we build a better world.

Frequently Asked Questions

Safe, decent, affordable housing has the power to transform lives. When a family is able to afford their home, the family unit is stronger and more stable. Most affordable housing organizations focus on providing rentals. San Diego Habitat for Humanity’s model goes a step further.

San Diego Habitat invests in bringing the community together to create affordable homeownership where the low and middle-income families we serve are able to purchase, own, and grow equity through affordable housing. Your company’s contribution makes this possible.

Homeownership is transformative. Studies demonstrate that family health improves, their economic mobility increases, they have the ability to remain secure in the face of difficulties, and their children are able to build stronger, more stable futures. Homeownership for these families builds stability that lasts for generations and breaks the cycle of poverty that often plagues families earning low and middle-income wages.
