By identifying and soliciting In-Kind Donations (building materials and/or services) for your Habitat project, you will be able to reduce your final cash commitment. FCHH credits every In-Kind donation of goods or services toward your final sponsorship payment.
The most productive ways to solicit material and service donations are through personal contact and networking.
Please respect Habitat's "Do Not Solicit " list. These businesses are already supporting Flower City Habitat for Humanity.

If in doubt, please contact FCHH Construction Manager, Bill Bartlet:
(585) 546-1470 Ext. 307
All donated materials must be new.
Written statements as to the kinds and quantities of materials and/or services to be donated are necessary, so that Habitat can be aware of them and plan accordingly. (See sample Letter of Commitment.)
Major material deliveries must be coordinated with the construction schedule, as Habitat has little storage capacity. Call Bill Bartlett, Construction Manager, to make arrangements: (585) 546-1470, Ext. 307.
Dollar credit is earned only for the services for which Habitat currently contracts labor. A sponsor may earn dollar credit by soliciting a donation of excavation, driveway box-out or roofing services.
Close coordination with Habitat is essential to determine the suitability of potential material and service donations and the dollar value to be credited to your project.
The dollar value at which Habitat will assess donated materials and services is typically equal to wholesale cost.
Donations cannot be applied beyond the current sponsor year.
