You believe in family and community. You believe in doing your part to help create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Habitat brings together people from all walks of life. For more than 35 years, President and Mrs. Carter have been our most famous and dedicated volunteers. As inaugural Habitat Humanitarians, they are champions and strong voices for affordable, decent housing for all. Their work — and the work of others like them — has drawn individuals like you to embrace our mission in many different ways.
The people you’ll read about below believe in the same thing that you do, and they’ve taken the step to act on their values by making a gift in a will, trust or other account to participate in Habitat’s work after their lifetime. Meet some of our donors who are partnering with families as they build stronger and more stable lives.
