Featured Fundraisers

Durham Habitat relies on generous neighbors, groups, faith communities, and businesses for each project’s start-up capital. Our home sponsors partner with our homebuyers to purchase building materials and provide volunteer labor for new homes and home repairs.

In-kind gifts

Durham Habitat relies on the generosity of in-kind donors to further our mission.

Real estate gifts

Donating real estate to Durham Habitat provides tax benefits for the donor and helps us build more homes. These properties will be used to either build new Durham Habitat homes or will be sold to raise funds for home building.
