1000 Friends is the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts. Here's how it works:
1. Pledge to donate at least $50 semi-annually. Habitat will notify you each May and November to collect your pledge.
2. Combine that donation with 1000 people in the community.
3. This will generate enough funds to build one additional home.

Available at every level. You pick the level of involvement: Walls, Single-Day, Half-House, or Full-House Builds. Each choice offers the opportunity to invite employees, family, and friends to come out and lend a hand.
Our Habitat Stores accept new and gently-used furniture and building surplus (Freeland only) items. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Due to limited resources and storage capacity, please call or stop by to discuss any donations with the store manager in Oak Harbor (360.675.8733) and Freeland (360.331.6272).
The Employer Matching Gift programs are offered through many companies and could possibly double or triple the contributions made by employees and retirees. The process is simple: Ask if your company has a Match Gift Program. If so, obtain a Matching Gift form from your personnel office, complete the form, and return it to the Island County Habitat office with your contribution.
If you would like to make a gift to honor or remember a loved one, please mark the appropriate box on the online donation form, or include a note with your mailed-in donation.
A Charitable gift of stocks and bonds provides an opportunity for tax savings while generously sharing with others. The fastest and easiest way to do this is to have your broker complete an electronic transfer. It is important to contact our Executive Director (ED) 360.679.9444 regarding your gift. Our ED can guide you through the process to make the stock transfer via our secure broker.
Should you consider a gift to your local Island County Habitat in your will or living trust. Please contact our Executive Director at 360.679.9444.
Do you have an older car, truck, van, trailer, RV, or boat taking up valuable space in your garage or yard? Vehicle donations support Habitat's local and global mission of eliminating poverty housing and homelessness and as well as saving you time and energy of finding a buyer. By donating a car to our vehicle donation program, you can help Island County Habitat build homes in partnership with families in need of a hand up, not a hand out. It's quick and easy to donate automobiles, trucks, boats, RV's, motorcycles, construction equipment, and other vehicles. You may be eligible for a tax deduction. Consult your tax adviser or the IRS for details.
To donate a car, truck, boast or RV to Cars For Homes- Habitat's official car donation program, call 877.277.4344 toll free or visit www.carsforhomes.org and let us take care of the rest. It's a convenient way to support Island County Habitat and save more space in your driveway!
