Chenango County Habitat for Humanity

DONATIONS:

How you can give

All of the following are ways for you to give to CCHH. Taking time to consider 'what' to give, as well as the 'how' and 'when', can make your valuable gifts more meaningful, and will assist you in meeting your personal planning goals too.

Time
Your valuable time is one of our most important assets. To volunteer, click here to go get a printable form (PDF, requires free reader from Adobe), fill it out, and send it on in to us per form directions.

Money
We love receiving your donations because that means we can build more houses, obtain more land, etc. Please consider providing donations regularly, on a monthly basis for instance, quarterly, semi-annually or annually. You may like establishing a contract with yourself that you'll provide a given amount on a given basis, and then send us a copy. Cash and checks are always welcome. In any case, we deeply appreciate that you make provision for us.

Car Donations

Do you have an older car, truck, van, trailer, RV or boat taking up valuable space in your driveway?

Car donations support Habitat for Humanity’s local and global mission of eliminating poverty housing and homelessness and save you the time and energy of finding a buyer.
By donating a car to our vehicle donation program, you can help Habitat for Humanity of Chenango County build houses in partnership with families in need of a hand up, not a hand out. Your donated vehicle will help us build the next home and/or small work project..

It is quick and easy to donate automobiles, trucks, boats, RV’s, motorcycles, construction equipment and other vehicles ~ running or not! Plus, you may be eligible for a tax deduction. (Consult your tax advisor or the IRS for details.)

For more information on how to donate a car, truck, boat or RV to Cars for Homes™ - Habitat’s official car donation program, call (877) 277-4344 toll free or visit www.carsforhomes.org. A car donation is a convenient way to support Habitat for Humanity of Chenango County and create more space in your driveway!

Non-cash Gifting

Examples of choices others have chosen in making provision for CCHH are:

  • Securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds)
  • Real Estate
  • Retirement Plans
  • Life Insurance policies.

One of these choices may be an appealing alternative for you. It may also permit you to enjoy what may be greater tax savings than deductions provided through gifts of money. We can also provide you with forms to transfer securities, examples for choosing what works best for you…that is, cash giving vs. stocks and possible tax savings. Gifting appreciated property generally allows you greater tax savings than cash, due to bypassing capital gains tax. Gifting depreciated property generally works better for you in saving taxes by selling it first and then giving cash. You may enjoy tax deductions greater than the asset value of the property. You can provide for us in your wills, gift annuities, and trusts ((living or charitable). We recommend your working closely with your financial advisor, and then contacting us.

For more information on this, contact Kathy Knudsen at (607) 639-1176.

Events
CCHH is chosen by faith-based groups to benefit from dinners they have held, or quilter's who offer their talents and skills in beautiful creations for auctions. Habitat will long be remembered for their annual Valentine's Day Red Carnation Fund Drive, but it has been discontinued.

Corporate Participation
CCHH welcomes the donations we've begun receiving from corporations and employers in Chenango County and adjacent counties. This is helping us move ahead faster than we had before, and is a continued direction for us. Corporations and employers provide funds, and as well have community service departments that provide capable and competent volunteers for builds. Companies often provide matching dollars for their volunteer's hours.
We look forward to continued growth with them all.
