An important message from our accountant, Tim Montgomery:

Temporary Suspension of Limits on Charitable Contributions

In most cases, the amount of charitable cash contributions taxpayers can deduct on Schedule A as an itemized deduction is limited to a percentage (usually 60 percent) of the taxpayer’s adjusted gross income (AGI). Qualified contributions are not subject to this limitation. Individuals may deduct qualified contributions of up to 100 percent of their adjusted gross income. A corporation may deduct qualified contributions of up to 25 percent of its taxable income. Contributions that exceed that amount can carry over to the next tax year. To qualify, the contribution must be: 

  • a cash contribution;
  • made to a qualifying organization;
  • made during the calendar year 2020

Contributions of non-cash property do not qualify for this relief. Taxpayers may still claim non-cash contributions as a deduction, subject to the normal limits.

The Coronavirus Tax Relief and Economic Impact Payments page provides information about tax help for taxpayers, businesses, tax-exempt organizations and others – including health plans – affected by coronavirus (COVID-19).

Jonathan and Drew Scott, HGTV’s The “Property Brothers”, share why they love Habitat and how Habitat can build affordable housing – utilizing volunteers on the build (we typically have over 300 volunteers on each house!) and  making great purchasing decisions.

Homeownership has a great impact on both the family and the community!

> Family Impact

> Community Impact


Our Habitat houses are well-built, attractive, energy efficient and Energy Star! Habitat families report that their utility bills are usually 1/3rd of what they paid in their rental housing! Habitat home mortgage payments are typically $700,  whereas they used to pay $1000 – $1500 a month for their rental housing! So Habitat families save in many ways by BUYING their home instead of renting!!
