Why should my business support Habitat for Humanity?

Habitat for Humanity has been changing lives in Edmonton and across northern Alberta for over 30 years. To date, we have transformed the future through over 840 affordable homeownership opportunities, and there are more on the way. We bring together individuals, small businesses, corporations, governments, and many other organizations and groups to place house keys into the hands of those who need a hand up through affordable home ownership.

Partnering with Habitat moves us closer to seeing a world where everyone has a decent place to live. When Habitat homeowners are ready to move on from the program, Habitat purchases the home back from the homeowner, who then uses their equity to purchase a home on the open market or to invest in other meaningful life goals. Habitat then provides another participant with the opportunity to own the home. Your gift to Habitat will serve those who need affordable housing for years down the road.

Here’s how your business can benefit from supporting Habitat Edmonton.

Team Building

Habitat Edmonton offers a one-of-a-kind team building experience. Your team will have the opportunity to get out of the office and onto a construction site, where you will be trained to safely perform construction tasks. While working together to build homes, you also get to know your colleagues in a different environment.

Sponsorships and Third Party Fundraisers

Sponsoring a Habitat Edmonton event, or hosting a third party fundraiser, brings your company’s or organization’s brand top-of-mind in the community, strengthening your reputation as a community-minded business.  Learn more.

Donating Product

Habitat runs a social enterprise named ReStore that accepts donations of new and gently-used building materials, furniture, appliances and more. All proceeds go to the Habitat program. Donating product to ReStore can benefit your business:

  • Reducing your environmental footprint
  • Reducing your waste disposal costs
  • Providing a charitable tax receipt
  • Providing recognition for your support in accordance with our donor recognition program

For more information about donating product to ReStore, please touch base with us.

Builder and Trades Program

In order to provide affordable home ownership, Habitat relies on developers, builders, and tradespeople to deliver our program. Whether it is land that is donated or discounted, or through our Builder and Trades program, your contribution will make a difference for those in need while highlighting your social impact. We would love to work with your business and learn how we can work together to build strength, stability and independence in our community. Learn more about the Builder and Trades Program.

We are grateful for the support of our partners. When you partner with Habitat Edmonton, you’re not only helping families, but your community and your organization as well.  Every donation, whether it is a gift of time, a product or support through sponsorship, ensures we can continue to provide affordable home ownership in our community.

We would love the opportunity to speak to you about how you can partner with us. community@hfh.org or 780-479-3566.
