In-kind donations of material and labor are always welcome. Many home sponsors will solicit in-kind donations to support the fundraising effort for the cost of the sponsorship. Other groups simply have access to contractors who would like to use their skills on the Habitat home. In-kind values vary and are determined by Habitat based on the cost savings we obtain.
The donation must be a complete package (e.g. HVAC, plumbing, electrical, etc). Only one of each package will be accepted. The work must be completed by a licensed journeyman and meet current, local, building codes. This work must also pass municipal and city inspections.
If donations that do not comply to the material takeoffs or plans are placed in the house, without prior approval, they may have to be removed and replaced. The cost of this would then be borne by the home sponsor.
A home may not be funded by in-kind donations alone. At least half of the sponsorship costs must be cash donations.
