Thank you for your interest in Essex County Habitat for Humanity. We take seriously our responsibility to our supporters and those counting on our help. Please know that each gift given helps a family in need of decent shelter.
ECHFH is responsible for raising all of the money necessary to construct affordable housing and maintain its operations. By partnering with volunteers and homeowners, we keep our construction costs down, but in today’s building climate, it still costs between $150,000 – $170,000 to build one of our homes. We work very hard to keep our administrative overhead costs down, and over 85 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to construction and family services expenses. Our work of building decent affordable homes depends greatly on generous contributions, and the building support from individuals, corporations and local businesses, faith-based organizations, and youth groups.
There are many ways to donate to Essex County Habitat – and they are all easier than you may think!
ECHFH is a tax-exempt 501(c) organization and all contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Essex County Habitat is committed to our donors’ privacy. We will neither sell nor share any of our donor lists.

Recently Essex County Habitat launched its Building Dreams Society, which provides individuals with an opportunity to make a legacy donation to the affiliate. This can be done several ways, but the most common donation is a bequest where you name Essex County Habitat for Humanity as a beneficiary in a will.
Other forms of planned gifts include donations of real estate, retirement plans, life insurance policies, and securities.

Essex County Habitat for Humanity is always looking for additional building sites. Without land on which to build, we cannot move on our mission to provide safe and decent housing for our partner families. If you have land to donate or know of any available parcels of land that could be purchased at a substantially reduced price, please call 978-681-8858 or email email@example.com.
