It takes a lot of resources to build homes and communities, but with a donation of an item or service, you can help sustain our mission.


For gifts of land and homes contact:


For gifts of furniture, appliances, home goods or other items that do not align with our construction needs, please visit our ReStore Donation webpage.


Goods and Services We Accept

Click the blue options below to see more details.

Attorneys, accountants, graphic designers, landscaping professionals and financial counselors are just a few examples of those who have contributed their time and resources to help further Habitat Chicago’s mission. 


We will also consider donations of subcontractor services, including: 

  • Earthwork, sewer, and water installation

  • Concrete

  • Plumbing

  • HVAC

  • Electrical work

We are happy to consider a parcel of land or vacant home in the West Pullman, Greater Grand Crossing, or Austin neighborhoods of Chicago. 


If your property does not fall within these area, 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.

We accept many types of building materials, supplies, and tool donations:

  • Dimensional lumber
  • Insulation
  • Sheathing material
  • Exterior drywall
  • Tongue and groove decking
  • Shingles
  • Coated nails
  • Drywall screws
  • Milwaukee tools
  • Fencing Windows
  • Siding
  • Scaffolding
  • Landscaping (sod, topsoil, mulch)


However, not all donations can be used on the build site due to bulk purchasing agreements, ongoing in-kind donor relationships, and maintaining continuity and construction standards. We will work with you to determine your donation’s suitability to be used on the build site.
