All Garland Area Habitat for Humanity donations are tax-deductible, as allowed by law, and will be acknowledged with a letter you may use for those purposes. We take our responsibility to our contributors, and to those counting on our help, very seriously by being wise stewards of any funds entrusted to us.

Leave a Gift In Your Will
As you plan for your future please consider how you can continue to have an impact in our community. Do you have a will? A will is a legal document that distributes your property and the assets of your estate to the individuals and charities of your choice. Garland Area Habitat for Humanity would like to ask you to consider making a legacy gift that is an expression of the material and spiritual values that you have acquired in your lifetime. We would like to send some information to you, or schedule a personal visit with no obligation on your part. For more information about making a gift to the Garland Area Habitat for Humanity through your will, please call 972-272-8530 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many of our partners support Habitat through planned gifts, which may qualify for significant tax deductions. Giving options include bequests, charitable gift annuities, and charitable remainder trusts.
Stocks and Bond Gifts
A charitable gift of stocks or bonds provides an opportunity for tax savings while generously sharing with others. A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation. In addition to helping GAHFH, you may diversify away from low-basis, long-term holdings into other assets that will better suit your current needs.
