In-Kind Giving

Donating products or services is a great way to support Habitat’s work without writing a check.

Donate land

Land is the first step in building affordable houses, so we are always looking for buildable land in Buncombe County.

Donate new construction materials/tools/services

Contributions of new construction materials, tools, and professional services help us keep the cost of house building as low as possible.
