Thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, donors and corporate partners, Habitat for Humanity has provided simple, decent shelter for hundreds of thousands of families in need. Our corporate partners’ donations of funds or services help us to continue providing families with homes and the hope of a better life. We are grateful for their kind support.

The Thousand Islands Area Habitat for Humanity is grateful for the generous support of our local sponsors.

The Thousand Islands Area Habitat for Humanity sponsors a Corporate Sponsor Partnership. The intent to solicit donations to that support the operation of the affiliate. The main focus of these donations is for construction materials and professional construction labor. With these donations the house projects will be completed faster and reduce the purchase cost of a house, making it more affordable.

The affiliate is in need of professional services to operate the business side of the organization. These include donations to host Volunteer Appreciation Dinner and fund raising events. It is critical for us to have assistance from businesses to advertise our mission to those in the need of housing. A Business may sponsor creating and publish marketing materials.

In support for the donation received, the affiliate provides back various programs to publicly show our appreciation for their support. This includes listing them on our Website Sponsor page, postings on our Facebook page and if the donation exceeds $1,000, their company name would be included on T-Shirt given to each volunteer as well as listed on the 4’x8′ Construction sign at the construction site.
