By giving to Beaches Habitat, you are not only showing your support for the affordable housing cause in the Jacksonville Beaches – you are helping a family in need. Together we can eliminate substandard housing in our community.
We raise all our funds locally and receive no funding from Habitat for Humanity International. In fact, we support the efforts of Habitat for Humanity International by tithing 10% of all unrestricted donations to our sister affiliates in Haiti, Lisotho Africa and Nepal to go directly to build homes. To date this tithe has built more than 125 homes.
Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law and will be acknowledged with a letter you may use for those purposes.

Stock 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 Beaches Habitat for Humanity, you may diversify away from low-basis, long-term holdings into other assets that will better suit your current needs. If you would like to discuss a gift of stocks or bonds, please contact Mary Anne Christensen at (904) 595-5794.
Thank you for considering Beaches Habitat for Humanity as your charitable giving choice!
