Many companies in the New River Valley and throughout the U.S. provide matching gifts to increase the impact of their employees and retirees gifts. In addition to matching employees monetary donations, some companies match volunteer hours with monetary donations.
Please check with your employer to see if it has a matching gift program.
Making a planned gift to Habitat for Humanity of New River Valley is an investment in the future of our community. Your gift will help ensure that low-income, working people in our community who seek to realize the dream of homeownership will always have somewhere to turn.
A planned gift also can provide tax benefits. Bequests, charitable trusts, gifts of life insurance, and gifts of retirement benefits may each have beneficial tax consequences to you or your heirs.
We will be happy to talk with you about making a planned gift to Habitat. Please email info@HabitatNRV.org or call 540-381-1144 with any questions you may have. And remember, it is important to consult your attorney, financial planner or tax professional whenever you are making a decision about a charitable planned gift.
