WHY DONATEBuild something that matters and give to a non-profit organization with high marks for fiscal management, accountability, and transparency.
When you donate locally, your gift will continue to grow right here in Flathead County!
Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to call home. We know decent, affordable housing can create transformational change for individuals, families, and communities. Sadly, here in the Flathead Valley, decent and affordable housing is unreachable for far too many families. Together we can make a difference.
Families are waiting and volunteers are willing. When you give to Habitat for Humanity of Flathead Valley, you’re building something that matters and you’re giving to a non-profit organization with high marks for fiscal management, accountability, and transparency, so you know that your dollars are used wisely and efficiently to fund our local programs. Here’s what your support can build.
Quality housing has a huge impact on health. Families in substandard housing can be exposed to toxic substances. Parents and children can suffer from asthma, leading to missed work and school. When housing is unaffordable, families are unable to save for the unexpected and may put off seeking medical treatment that they can’t afford. Homeowners are healthier and happier when they no longer face the stress of living in unstable and unaffordable housing.
Homeownership is a path to the middle class that helps break the cycle of poverty. Families with quality, affordable housing can begin to create a safety net and build savings for their children’s education (or their own), retirement, and the future. When you give to Habitat Flathead, you’re not providing a temporary solution or treating a symptom—you’re permanently changing the trajectory of local families’ lives.
When you give to Habitat Flathead, you give a hand up, not a handout, empowering local families to change their lives and make their dream of homeownership a reality. Our homeowners partner with us every step of the way, completing financial education training, spending 300 to 500+ hours of sweat equity helping to build their own homes, and paying an affordable mortgage.
Homeowners work diligently to build and improve their communities. They are 16% more likely to belong to parent-teacher organizations, 28% more likely to repair and maintain their homes, and 28% more likely to vote. Homeownership is also a huge driver of local economies—one job is created for every two homes sold and for each home purchased, $60,000 in direct and indirect spending occurs in the economy.
