Direct paycheck contributions

Many workplaces make it simple for employees to make one-time or ongoing donations directly through their paycheck. Ask your employer if your organization has a paycheck giving option.

Workplace giving campaigns

If your workplace participates in giving campaigns, you may be able to choose Greater Mattews Habitat to receive your donation. Here are giving campaigns that may allow you to designate Greater Matthews Habitat as the recipient of your contribution:

Benevity

YourCause

Federal, state, and local government employee campaigns

Corporate matching

Make your gift go even further.

Matching donations

Does your employer match charitable contributions made by employees? Many do! With a matching gift, your donation to Habitat might be doubled or even tripled in value. Gifts of stock are also eligible — just like any cash or credit card donation. This kind of employer match maximizes the impact you can have, making your donation go even further.

Matching volunteer hours

Have you volunteered with Greater Matthews Habitat recently? Your employer may choose to reward your community involvement by making a corporate donation based on the time you’ve invested with us. Ask your employer if they match volunteer hours. If they do, you’ll double your impact by swinging a hammer and funding the work being done onsite.

  • How do I get a house?
    Greater Matthews Habitat for Humanity does not give away homes. We provide a hand up, not a handout. You will be purchasing your home, and we work with you to make sure you have an affordable housing cost after purchasing the home. Each applicant must agree to partner with us in the program, which includes providing all documentation needed as well as attending homebuyer education classes and completing volunteer "HIP-hour" requirements.
  • Are Habitat homes free?
    No, Habitat homeowners purchase their home, and pay an affordable mortgage.
  • When will you accept applications again?
    At this time, we do not have a date set for our next application period.
  • How much does a Greater Matthews Habitat mortgage cost?
    Your mortgage payment (including principal, interest, taxes, and insurance) will be no more than 30% of your gross monthly income. This helps to ensure that you are able to continue making payments on your home while having enough remaining income to provide a healthy, stable life for you and your family.
  • What is meant by "ability to pay"?
    Must be able to afford monthly mortgage payments Debt-to-income ratio has to be lower than 13% Stable income of at least $45,000 a year but less than 80% of the AMI based on family size.
  • Do I need enough savings for a down payment?
    No. We consider the required 150 volunteer "HIP-hours" as down payment. However, you are required to cover closing costs.
  • What do you mean by "family"?
    Greater Matthews Habitat for Humanity understands that there are many types of families, and all are welcome to apply to our program. You determine who your family is. Just a few examples of family are: an individual applying alone, a married couple with children, a single parent, a non-married couple, or a family that includes aunts, uncles, or parents. Unless there are circumstances outside of your control, you must have lived with all the household members shown on your application for at least 6 months.

Ask your human resources department today about what opportunities you have for workplace giving!
