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 affordable, safe and decent shelter.

Donations from individuals, corporations, foundations, churches, and local organizations all help provide the funding needed to build affordable housing for individuals and families throughout Essex County.  By partnering with volunteers and homeowners, we keep our construction costs down, but in today’s building climate, it still costs approximately $250,000 to build one of our homes.

We accomplish this while maintaining our commitment to fiscal responsibility and serving as trusted stewards of the organization.

For your tax purposes, all donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Essex County Habitat’s Tax ID Number is 22-2672831.

There are many ways to donate to Essex County Habitat – and they are all easier than you may think!

Should you have any questions, please reach out directly to our Director of Charitable Giving by email at or by phone at (978) 681-8858.

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.

Donate Land

Essex County Habitat is always looking for additional building sites. Without land on which to build, we cannot continue to provide affordable, safe, and decent housing for local low-income 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

Become a Sponsor

Building Supplies or Services
Did you know that Essex County Habitat for Humanity relies on donations of construction materials and services to help lower the cost of building and selling a home?

Do you have access to or know someone that could donate lumber, drywall, roofing, kitchen cabinets, windows and doors, insulation, or any other construction-related materials?

What about architects, engineers, plumbers, electricians, or any other services needed to build a home?

And don’t forget about our closings – attorneys and appraisers are always needed to help us with all the final paperwork to make our families’ dreams of homeownership come true.

If you can help, or know someone who may, please contact our Director of Charitable Giving at or (978) 681-8858.
