It takes all kinds of contributions to make what habitat does possible. Individuals, churches, businesses and contractors alike all share an important role in helping to build houses together with our sponsor families.
Supporting Habitat is a great way for your business to give back to the community and make a positive impact. Not only do we provide a unique volunteer opportunity for individuals, but it’s a great team-building experience as well. We can work with each company to help personalize your experience.
Businesses and organizations which actively partner with Habitat for Humanity of Madison & Clark Counties help provide us with a significant amount of materials, tools, professional talent and time each year. Their generous donations make it possible for us to work alongside volunteers and future homeowners to build Habitat homes in our community.
By sponsoring a home in Madison or Clark County, you are literally putting your faith into action! Your church’s impact goes beyond the homeowner, spreading throughout the entire community.
Our affiliate gives 10% of our unrestricted donations to help fund Habitat’s international building. For every home we build in Madison or Clark County, we build one in Haiti or another under-developed country.
INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY SPONSORSHIP
Sponsorships are not limited to just large organizations. Many individuals or families also wish to sponsor a home. Sponsoring a home provides a tangible opportunity to live out your faith and help a neighbor build a new life for their family. If this is your desire, we will partner you with a Habitat family to work alongside in building a home.

A sponsorship consists of providing monetary support (there are different levels of financial support) and volunteers to build a home. A build will last 8-12 weeks. Habitat will provide the construction leadership and promises to ensure a positive experience for everyone involved.
Your money goes towards helping families build and restore homes with habitat.
