Did you know?

After volunteers and future homeowners work side-by-side to build a home, Habitat sells the home to a pre-qualified family using a 0%-interest mortgage. Mortgage payments are set below 30% of each family’s monthly income to ensure long term affordability. Because Habitat acts as the lender, 100% of the mortgage principal payments return to Habitat to help build more homes. Your initial investment gets “recycled” to keep building future Habitat homes.

Leave a Legacy, Change Lives

It takes a special kind of person to make plans for the benefit of unknown people in the unknowable future, and the Habitat for Humanity Legacy Society was designed to recognize these forward-thinking friends. We are always delighted to welcome new members to this exclusive group, and there are only two requirements for membership:

  1. Make arrangements to benefit Habitat for Humanity of the Mid-Willamette Valley beyond your lifetime. These arrangements might include a bequest in your will, or a plan that provides life income and income tax benefits, like a Charitable Gift Annuity.
  2. Let us know about your plans.  It is not necessary to specify a dollar value for these plans, but having some idea of the details allows us to plan for the future, and is appreciated.

While it is not possible for Habitat for Humanity to provide tax or legal advice, we do have access to the Planned Giving experts who can provide information using the latest planned giving software, and we will be happy to help you sort through your options in preparation for a visit to your professional advisers.

For more information please contact: 503-364-6642 ext. 111 or email: adena@salemhabitat.org.
