Affordable homes, and more than houses.
Since 1981 more than 1,000 families have partnered with Pensacola Habitat to make their dreams of homeownership a possibility.
While ensuring access to affordable homes is central to Pensacola Habitat’s mission, it is just one of many ways the organization is working to build communities. Pensacola Habitat for Humanity’s neighborhood revitalization efforts improve existing homes and neighborhoods in lower income communities. Free little libraries create pockets for literacy in communities where books are not always available. And the ReStore provides a green alternative to the disposal of building supplies.
There are many, many ways you can choose to give to help Pensacola Habitat for Humanity. Put a check in the mail, donate online, volunteer, donate supplies to the ReStore, make a gift in honor of a dear friend or in memory of a relative, bake cookies for visiting college students, or sponsor a home! By giving to Habitat, you are not only making a difference in one family’s life, you are investing in our community and making it a better place to live. Thank you for your commitment.
Invest in your community.
By supporting Pensacola Habitat for Humanity, you can not only help a deserving family realize the dream of homeownership; you can also invest in our community and making it a better place to live. Every dollar given by our individual donors goes directly into one of our important programs.
Your organization can partner with Habitat to accomplish great things.
Organizations that contribute at least $75,000 can become sponsors. Habitat offers special project opportunities to sponsors; these projects engage constituents, congregants, clients or employees, and can include signage and other on-site recognition. Pensacola Habitat designs these engagements so that the unique Habitat model becomes part of the shared knowledge and experience of teams in the sponsoring organizations.
Organizations are encouraged to develop a plan to raise the roof on a Habitat home. Within your own organizations or in combination with other churches and organizations, your group can contribute the individual components needed to sponsor a full home.

A covenant is a commitment to the mission of Habitat for Humanity at whatever level a church feels comfortable.

Community Tax Credit Sponsorship
Companies can contribute up to $200,000 per State of Florida corporate entity to Habitat for Humanity and receive a $1 for $1 refund on their sales tax receipts. In a nutshell, the contribution is one-half the cost of a home (less the land value). $200,000 would allow Pensacola Habitat to build four houses within this program. The organization has built over 100 tax credit homes since adopting the program in 2002; in fact, Pensacola Habitat built 38 tax credit homes in 2013.
An interested business should commit to the number of houses they wish to sponsor for the following year in the fall or no later than April 1. Click here to learn more about this important program.

Your Stuff Can Build Homes
When you donate your gently-used items to a Habitat ReStore, you’re doing two amazing things: you’re helping to change lives by making affordable homeownership a reality, and you’re also keeping perfectly usable items from needlessly going to waste in a landfill.
