Ways to Give


Ways to Support the Habitat for Humanity of NWI mission

Financial Gifts

Please use our secure online form to donate with a credit card or donate using Venmo or PayPal. If you prefer to make a donation over the phone, please call Wende Burbridge at 219-923-7265 ext. 1304. You may also mail your gift to us at 3777 Colfax Street, Gary, IN 46408.

Donate to the ReStore

You can donate used and new furniture, appliances, building materials and more to our ReStore. Visit the Restore website for more information.

Gifts of Stock

When you transfer appreciated assets to Habitat, you avoid paying capital gains tax and become eligible to take a charitable deduction for the entire donation amount if you itemize deductions and own the stock for at least one year. Using this online tool, it only takes a couple of minutes to access account information to share with a broker or fill out the forms online to complete the gift electronically. Learn more and get started.

Estate Gifts

With a planned gift to Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Indiana, you become part of our commitment to bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. We’ve partnered with FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through creating your legally valid estate plan at no cost. In just 20 minutes, this tool allows you to secure the future of your loved ones and the causes you care about — and create a charitable gift to Habitat that will help us partner with homebuyers and build affordable homes for years to come. Get started today!

Gifts of Land

If you own land you wish to sell or know of land parcels to recommend, please contact Dawn Michaels at 219-923-7265 ext. 1306 to begin the conversation.

Donate a Car or Boat

Gifts of used vehicles can build homes through Habitat’s Cars for Homes program. By designating Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Indiana as the recipient of the proceeds, you can help build homes in Lake County, Indiana.

In-kind Services and Materials

If you are interested in providing Habitat with new construction services or materials, please contact Wende Burbridge at 219-923-7263 ext. 1304.

ReStore Donations

If you are interested in donating gently-used building materials or have large-scale furniture donations, please contact our scheduler, Theresa at 219-972-3000.

Workplace Giving – Matching Gifts

Your employer may have a matching gift program. Talk to your Human Resources department or direct manager to find out.

IRA Giving 

Supporters 70.5 or older with a traditional IRA are eligible to donate Habitat directly from their IRAs without increasing their taxable incomes. These gifts are, in many cases, tax-free, regardless of whether or not you itemize deductions on your tax return. You can use this online tool to make your donation online, print out the forms you need to complete the gift offline, or learn more about the benefits of giving from your IRA.
