Habitat’s Impact Partners are companies, foundations, government agencies and faith-based organizations. They are groups who have answered the call to fund Habitat’s work of building safe and affordable housing in the Capital District.
Impact Partners know that stronger neighborhoods aren’t created by simply building four walls and a roof. Rather, they know that community change happens when the families inside those homes are supported and empowered to build strength, stability and self-reliance for a better future.
Habitat Impact Partners commit to one calendar year of giving, either through monthly contributions or a one-time donation. Each gift is used to support the services within the Habitat program: new construction, complete renovation, pre-purchase counseling, financial education, community engagement, advocacy and service referrals.
In the past, Habitat only measured success through the number of houses that were built and sold each year. We now recognize that a more holistic approach is needed in order to accurately reflect our shared role as true agents of community change. We have committed to fundraising for and reporting on all of the services that make up the Habitat program. Impact Partners understand that with more funding, Habitat can serve more families. Additionally, they know that planned, unrestricted funding allows Habitat to spend less time raising money and more time improving the services that result in a stronger overall program.

Become an Impact Partner
Donating as a company or organization is a strong symbol of social citizenship and responsibility. You’ll also be making a powerful statement as a business, philanthropic, public service or faith leader that you believe everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to call home.
2018 Impact Partnership Commitments
By investing in Habitat on an annual basis, Impact Partners communicate that they believe in Habitat’s vision - a world where everyone has a decent place to live – and that they trust Habitat’s ability to execute that vision locally. Impact Partners are recognized for their partnership throughout the year, rather than just for specific construction projects, and are invited to celebrate the many ways that their support impacts families and communities.
Impact partners will receive:
- A quarterly newsletter
- Exclusive invitation to a mid-year gathering
- Site tours, upon request
- Electronic copy of Habitat’s annual report, including mention
- Invitation to the annual Impact Partner Breakfast
- Recognition on social media platforms
- Recognition on Habitat’s website, habitatcd.org
