Become a Sponsor

DC Habitat’s mission is to provide decent, affordable homes for hard-working, low-income families. The number of houses we build each year depends on the money we raise, and our corporate partnerships are critical to helping us close the gap for hard-working families across the District. We partner with businesses, faith-based groups, community organizations, and partner families to build brighter futures for local families and help them attain the dream of homeownership. We build homes year round and there are many of sponsorship levels to choose from! We hope you’ll join us to build a DC where everyone has a safe, decent place to live.

Who are we supporting?

When you become a DC Habitat sponsor, you're helping us create affordable homeownership opportunities for local families who live in cramped, unsafe, or unaffordable housing. Every Habitat homeowner pays a low- or no-interest mortgage, property taxes, and puts in 200-300 hours of “sweat equity” labor helping build their home and completing financial literacy and homeownership classes before moving into their own home. We partner closely with our homeowners to ensure they will be successful homeowners who can build brighter futures and help their families to thrive.

What are the benefits?

As a sponsor, you'll have the opportunity to participate in team building opportunities with your employees (why do trust falls for a day, when you can participate in a team-building activity where you actually build something!); receive recognition for your support in press releases, annual reports, local publications, and signage; and attend home dedications where you'll see first-hand how you're making a difference when you watch families cut the ribbons on their homes. You'll also be strengthening your local community, making your neighborhoods better, and showing your commitment to an important cause.
