Donate Land

Our housing programs are supported by donations. Land is no different. Our financial resources to purchase land are limited, so we rely upon gifts of land to assure the affordability of the houses that we build. Donating land can also have many tax benefits for the donor.

In most instances we can assist with the transaction at no costs to the donor and Habitat for Humanity will cover all the related expenses to make your gift a reality.

If you have land that you would like to donate our trained staff and attorney can assist you in structuring the gift to accommodate your needs. Your gift will help to create continued opportunities for affordable housing in the Greater Peoria Area

Please call our Executive Director Lea Anne Schmidgall at (309) 676-6729 x 6 to explore these options.

Do you own land in Peoria, Woodford, Tazwell, or Marshall County that you would like to donate?

We can accept plotted building lots, farm acreage, or raw land. Donations of land are 100% tax deductible.

Do you own a house in Peoria, Woodford, Tazwell, or Marshall County that you would like to donate?

The donation of an already constructed home is a special blessing. Many existing homes can be renovated to meet the needs of a low-income family much more quickly than it takes to build a new house. As part of our Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, we are actively seeking foreclosed upon and dilapidated homes that can be renovated – a double benefit, providing a home for a family in need while helping to restore blighted neighborhoods.

If you have a house that you would like to donate, but it would require that the house be relocated or moved, please call us to discuss the donation.

Do you own land or a house somewhere else that you would like to donate?

Land that is outside of Peoria, Woodford, Tazwell, or Marshall County can still be donated to support the critical work of eliminating substandard and poverty housing. We can use the funds from the sale of these properties to fund home-building, homeowner education, and program operations.

Do you have land  Peoria, Woodford, Tazwell, or Marshall County that you would like to sell to us at a discounted price?

We are always looking for affordable opportunities to purchase land for future house construction. The land must be modestly priced and suitable for house construction. We cannot purchase land that is in the floodplain and we cannot mediate heirship issues. The land must have clear and marketable title and be free of encumbrances.
