Donate Materials and Services

Help build more homes

Your contribution of building materials, contractor, or other professional services can help us provide safe, decent and affordable homes for hardworking, low-income families.

This includes materials such as lumber, insulation, doors and windows, and services such as dry wall finishing, plumbing, and electrical. 

In addition to the satisfaction of knowing that your donation of materials and services builds homes for deserving families, your donation may be tax deductible.

What are Gifts In-Kind?

A Gift In-Kind is a tax-deductible gift of materials, services and/or labor that has monetary value to Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity.

Examples of Gifts In-Kind include:

  • A donation of shingles that Habitat would have otherwise had to purchase

  • A plumber donating materials and his/her time to install the plumbing

  • A donation of a survey of a building lot

How are Gifts In-Kind valued and accounted for?

  • Donors submit a breakdown of costs, services and/or materials

  • Donor will receive a thank you letter acknowledging the tax-deductible donation with a tax receipt

  • Habitat accounts for Gifts In-Kind in its bookkeeping by assigning a value for what it would have to pay for the materials or services

  • The donor is responsible for assigning a fair market value to the Gift In-Kind for his or her own tax purposes.
