There are countless ways to support Habitat for Humanity Greater Peoria Area. With each house that is built, lives are transformed, faith is restored and a new type of self reliance replaces even the most grievous cycles of need. Please help us make a difference. Habitat is a Hand Up, not a Handout! To discuss any of these giving opportunities, please contact Lea Anne Schmidgall, Executive Director, at 309 676-6729, ext. 6 or by email at email@example.com.
A large percentage of donations to Habitat for Humanity Greater Peoria Area comes from individual
contributors. It takes a great deal of capital to make this mission work. Whether designating or utilizing
your gift to help build a house, acquire land, purchase equipment, or provide the services to equip our
families, you can be assured your gift will be used effectively and efficiently.
There are four different sponsor levels for your business, church or organization to help build a Habitat
house. From Day Sponsors to Whole House Sponsors, this is a perfect opportunity to directly interact
with and impact a family, as well as foster team building skills within your group.
Without land, there can be no "habitat." One of our greatest needs, we are always looking for affordable
land on which to build houses. There are two ways to help. First, you may want to consider a
designated gift to help us purchase the land we need to build houses for our partner families. Or, if you
own property that may be suitable for Habitat, you can donate or sell it at a reduced price to us with tax
benefits for you.
Contributions of new construction materials, professional building services, and used or new
equipment, tools, or vehicles are always welcome and help us to keep the cost of house building as low
You can create a legacy that will continue building a better future for families in our community for years
to come by remembering Habitat for Humanity Greater Peoria Area in your will or by making another type
of planned gift.
In an effort to be more self-sustaining, Habitat for Humanity Greater Peoria Area opened ReStore in
2005. ReStore relies on donations from individuals and businesses of both new and used building
materials, home furnishings, appliances, and other household improvement items. They are then sold
to the public at a fraction of retail cost. All proceeds support Habitat's mission. To donate any of these
items or to have them picked up, please call ReStore at 309 676-8402.
You may be able to double or triple your donation. Many area businesses and corporations match
employee or retiree gifts. Check with your company's human resources department.
