It takes a lot of resources to build homes and communities, but when you jump in with a donation of an item or service we would otherwise have to pay for, you make our mission that much more of a reality. Our needs are far and wide – if you’ve got a good or service, chances are we can put it to good use. Plus, you’ll get the benefits of tax-deductibility from your donation.

Gifts of Land and Homes

If you have a parcel of land or a vacant home you’d like to donate, we think you are just the tops. We work in geographically concentrated areas; if your property falls within one of our areas, we will be happy to consider it for mission delivery. If it doesn’t, we may still be able to accept the donation by working with a non-profit partner who works to sell the property and return a portion of the proceeds to our programs. Your donation in the second case would still be tax-deductible and still have a huge impact on the advancement of our work in Chicago.

Gifts of Furniture, Home Goods, Building Materials, etc.

ReStore is our home improvement resale store that accepts a wide range of donated goods and sells them to the public at a discounted price. We then use the proceeds to help fund our programs and work in Chicago. If you have home goods or improvement items you’re looking to give away, consider a tax-deductible donation to ReStore.
