4 Last Minute Tax Deductions that will Build Hope, Lives & Communities



The end of the year is quickly approaching and as we say goodbye to the holidays and pack up the Christmas lights, tax season starts knocking on our doors. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles works everyday on and off the build site to fight the affordable housing crisis, and you can help too!

Here are 4 last minute tax deductions to consider, all of which give back to your community.
  1. Give a Monetary Gift.  Any donation amount helps us continue to build hope, lives and communities. Your donation will help purchase new building materials such as nails and screws or food and drinks to keep our volunteers healthy and hydrated while they work.  You can donate online, in person, or by mail. All of the information you need is here.  
  2. Gift-in-Kind Donation.  Donate the materials and services needed to help us build and renovate homes. Examples of items include: skilled professionals in the areas of plumbing, HVAC, and electrical; new construction materials such as siding, roofing materials, electrical supplies; food and drink donations for our special events.  For more information on how to make a gift in-kind donation, please contact our Development Manager.
  3. ReStore Donations.  With two locations, the ReStore sells donated materials including new and gently used furniture, appliances, lumber, hardware, vintage and unique items to the public. You will receive an In-Kind donation form listing all of your donated items and the funds made from items sold in the ReStores are used in many different ways, including: purchasing new materials for homes, landscaping on build sites, and basic business needs.  For more information on donating to the ReStore, please visit our website.
  4. Cars For Homes.  When you donate a car, truck, boat or RV through Cars for Homes, the net proceeds of your vehicle donation will help families build decent, affordable shelter within the local community. It’s quick and easy to donate by calling 1-877-277-HFHI (4344) or online at www.carsforhomes.org. Be sure to let them know the donation is for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.


Partner with us and empower your organization or yourself by giving back to your community and finish out the year knowing you made an impact.
