Habitat for Humanity – Powhatan (HFHP) depends upon donations from individuals, corporations, churches and civic groups, grants from charitable organizations, and fundraisers such as our Valentine Gala and our annual golf tournament. HFHP is grateful for donations of cash, land, and new construction materials. Because HFHP is a 501(C)(3) organization, gifts qualify for all tax deductions allowed by the IRS for charitable contributions. If you have questions or would like to make a donation, contact our Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (804) 372-9755.

Fundraisers are another way that Powhatan Habitat raises funds. A recent example is our annual golf tournament that raised over $20,000 in September 2017.
Low cost acquisition of land is critical to the productivity of Habitat for Humanity – Powhatan (HFHP). The market value of building lots in Powhatan is approximately 40% of the cost of building the home. It would not be possible for HFHP to maintain its ambitious building schedule without acquiring building lots at an average cost well below market value. In the past, a combination of land gifts and purchases at tax sale auctions has made this possible.
The Powhatan Board of Supervisors has recognized the importance of land donation to organizations such as HFHP. In 2004, the BOS approved the division of one parcel of land for conveyance to an organization holding a valid 501(c)(3) designation from the Internal Revenue Service. Thus, any other rights for division that the land owner may have are not diminished by the gift.
HFHP will continue to depend upon the generosity of landowners to keep its average lot cost low. Please consider supporting Habitat for Humanity – Powhatan by a land gift.
HFHP accepts donations of new construction materials. With the opening of our new Habitat Store, we will have scheduled times when the Habitat Store is open to sell materials to the public. We welcome your construction materials. See the Habitat Store page for more information.
Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Some companies provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift. Please check with your company to see if it offers a matching gift program that will match your gift or volunteer hours.
