Each gift you make helps a family in need of decent shelter. All Bay Area-Houston Habitat for Humanity donations are tax-deductible, as allowed by law, and will be acknowledged with a letter you may use for those purposes. We take our responsibility to our contributors, and to those counting on our help, very seriously by being wise stewards of any funds entrusted to us.
We raise all of our funds locally and receive no funding from Habitat for Humanity International. We support the efforts of Habitat for Humanity International by tithing 10% of all donations, unless the donation is requested to be used specifically in Galveston and Southeast Harris Counties

Employer Matching Gift Programs -Thousands of companies have Matching Gift programs which double, or even triple individual, tax-deductible contributions made by their employees. Ask your personnel office about your company’s Matching Gift program.
Planned Giving – Many of our partners support Habitat through planned gifts, which may qualify for significant tax deductions. Giving options include bequests, charitable gift annuities, and charitable remainder trusts.
Stocks and Bond Gifts – A charitable gift of stocks or bonds provides an opportunity for tax savings while generously sharing with others. A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation. In addition to helping BAHFH, you may diversify away from low-basis, long-term holdings into other assets that will better suit your current needs.
