Your company can contribute to the well-being of needy families in the Griffin area. Contributions of funds, supplies, and volunteers can be designated for a specific family - for example, a family with special access needs, with small children, or with senior citizens. GAHFH will provide receipts for tax-deductible donations and in-kind services and will recognize your generosity and commitment in our GAHFH Hall of Fame and at GAHFH events.

When our community neighbors save money on housing and learn sustainable financial management habits, they become your customers and contribute to the economy foundation of the Griffin area. A typical GAHFH homeowner frees up more than$500 a month of their income from housing expenditures to support their families. They learn about home maintenance and wealth0building to sustain the change. Can you contribute to this work?


Our volunteers and donors support this work because they share our vision of a world where, with strength, stability and self-reliance, everyone in the Griffin area has a place to live and financial education as a foundation of their sustainable well-being. Still, everyone likes to eb acknowledged and celebrated. Consider contributing discount coupons or gift certificates to your business or for your products as rewards for volunteers, donors, and the GAHFH homeowners who are contributing their sweat equity to build their own home and those of their neighbors. Please contact Dr. Marguerite Weber to get the conversation started.​​

​​Sustaining Donor

Griffin Area Habitat for Humanity (GAHFH) builds and repairs homes to sell to qualified families at no profit. We are community builders joining hard-working families in need of decent, affordable housing with dedicated volunteers and donors to ensure every neighbor has a safe, decent place to live. At GAHFH, we help low-income neighbors to improve their lives and those of their families with opportunities to purchase decent, affordable homes with a no-interest mortgage for the cost of their home.


​While homeowner mortgage payments are the foundation of GAHFH's stability, the rising costs of land, building supplies and tools, expenses for licensed building trades contractors, and necessary operating expenses require the support of members, local businesses, and foundations.


​Please consider a generous gift to this work as every dollar matters. There are many ways you can support the work of building a world where, with strength, stability, and self-reliance, everyone in the Griffin area has a quality place to live and financial education as a foundation of their sustainable well-being.
