Partner with Habitat for Humanity GTA and create the change you want to see in your community.
ways to partner with us
Habitat for Humanity GTA brings community partners together – including volunteers, individual donors, the private sector and governments – to help working, lower income families build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership.
When you partner with us to build safe, decent homes, you are building more than just the walls and roof of a home together, you’re constructing a solid foundation for families in your community on which to build a better life for themselves and their children. Find out what partnership with Habitat for Humanity GTA is all about.
In our partnerships with families, we offer them the chance to build a brighter future for themselves and their children by helping them build and buy an affordable home of their own. They pay a mortgage to Habitat for Humanity GTA and help build their home, volunteering 500 hours of ‘sweat equity’ on a variety of Habitat projects.
We rely on the support of thousands of passionate and caring volunteers living and working in the Greater Toronto Area to help us year-round with building Habitat homes in your community, operating our ReStores and planning our fundraising events.
Partnership with Habitat for Humanity GTA means that you’re teaming up with one of the most trusted and recognized non-profit organizations in Canada and the U.S. We offer your firm the opportunity to build a visible legacy of your commitment to strengthening your community, while also engaging your employees in a unique team building opportunity through volunteering on our build sites.
Building homes is expensive, particularly in the hottest real estate market in Canada. On average, Habitat for Humanity GTA needs $300,000 to build a safe, decent and affordable home, and close to half of this is needed for land, government fees and development costs – all incurred before we even start building. We need your support to purchase the land and buy the building materials needed to enable our volunteers to build Habitat homes.
There are many ways for organizations to support Habitat for Humanity GTA. Choose the one that’s right for you. Connect with us to talk about a partnership opportunity that aligns with your company’s goals.
The cash contributions of individual donors and major givers make them invested partners in our work to help families build a brighter future through affordable homeownership.

One of the biggest expenses we face is the cost of acquiring land on which to build our safe, decent, affordable homes. In every community in which we build, Habitat for Humanity GTA seeks support from local municipalities to help us improve the affordability of the homes we’re building through:
• donations of unused government owned land
• reduced or waived land transfer & development taxes and fees
• Access to low-cost financing or one-time investments in social infrastructure projects
• Broadened public sector investments in social housing beyond rental units to include affordable homeownership models
Contact Habitat for Humanity GTA’s Land team if you would like to discuss any of these partnership options.
