Bid to Build



On May 4, 2019, we celebrated 30 years of building communities, homes and hope in Washtenaw County during our Bid to Build Auction & Celebration at the University of Michigan North Campus Research Complex in Ann Arbor. Nearly 250 people attended the annual event, which featured delicious food and drinks, and a live and silent auction with hundreds of items and experiences from local businesses, artists and partners.

Planned Giving

Ways of Giving.JPG


A gift in your will or revocable trust can deliver a lasting gift to Habitat that will impact many lives to come. This can be a strong solution if you do not have the means to make your gift today, but would like to make a strong impact tomorrow.

Contact Laura Town at 734.882.2005 for more information.

charitable gift annuities

A charitable gift annuity is a way of giving to Habitat, while still receiving a lifetime stream of annual income. You transfer your cash or property to Habitat and we promise to make fixed payments to you for life, at a rate based on your age.

Contact Laura Town at 734.882.2005 for more information.



Direct your IRA plan administrator to distribute your preferred amount to Habitat. If you are 70 1/2 years old or older, this distribution is tax-free up to $100,000 for one calendar year.

Retirement plans

Naming Habitat as your retirement plan beneficiary is also a simple way of ensuring your impact. This can be a strong solution if you do not have the means to make your gift today, but would like to make a strong impact tomorrow.


Veterans Build

BUILDING THE future for local veterans

Veterans Build is an opportunity for local veterans and supporters to take a proactive step in building the future for local veterans by providing home ownership or critical repairs for existing homeowners.


Become an official 2019 Veterans Build sponsor and gain a closed volunteer day for 8 - 12 of your employees, friends or family to help with exterior repairs for local veterans. Veterans Build sponsors will be recognized on our website, signage on the build site and at the home dedication.

Contact James Hannah at to become a Veterans Build partner!


Women Build



Local women join together to build a home for a low-income, hardworking woman in the community and provide exterior repairs and clean up for local women in our community. In 2019, 15 teams of women joined together to raise roughly $58,000 to support renovation costs for the Women Build house and repairs for local women. 

Join us in 2019

We’ll kick off our Women Build planning in the winter of 2019, and begin building in March 2020, with exterior project days in May 2020.

Join us as a sponsor, volunteer, committee member or donor! Gather a group of 12 of your friends, co-workers or family and reach $75/person and get a closed volunteer day during March – May!

Contact Leah Borst at to learn more.

history & national impact

In 1991, a group of women in Charlotte, N.C.,  came together to build a stronger, safer community and completed the first women-built Habitat for Humanity house. With that event, the seeds for Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program were planted. Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley participated in its first women build program in 2009 and has been empowering women to address and help solve the housing crises in their own neighborhood.  Since that time Women Build has helped to complete numerous homes for low-income families in Washtenaw County.

Thank you to our 2019 Supporters
