The Chatham Habitat for Humanity Land Bank
A new concept in giving
Now, for the first time, you can specifically donate 100% of a gift to just land acquisition and development through our new Land Bank. No administrative costs or any other costs will ever come out of these funds. In addition, we at Habitat will be setting aside a percent of moneys from mortgage payments and other sources of revenue for the Land Bank. It is our intent to match at a minimum dollar for every dollar donated for the next year. Thus, we will double all Land Bank donations received from our community partners…the great friends and supporters of Chatham Habitat for Humanity. One goal is to build our assets to help finance significantly increased growth in our ability to partner with families to build safe, affordable houses in Chatham County. In the very short term, we will be purchasing one of the few remaining large parcels of land within the town of Pittsboro. This will provide us with an inventory of building lots for 5 years or more at an extremely reasonable cost. The other goal is to ensure donor giving can go directly toward land acquisition and development and nothing else. 100% guaranteed. It’s simple, secure, and without question as to where the money is used.
