Workplace Giving and Matching Gifts

Companies and employees can support Habitat for Humanity on and off the build site.

Each year thousands of employees are given the opportunity to direct a portion of their paycheck to the charities of their choice through workplace giving campaigns. You can help us serve more families in need of decent shelter by directing your workplace contribution to Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity.

Milwaukee Habitat is a donor choice agency for United Way of Greater Milwaukee and a member of Community Shares of Greater Milwaukee. Consider giving to Milwaukee Habitat through your workplace’s giving program.

  • To donate to Milwaukee Habitat during United Way’s annual campaign, write in our donor choice number: 49300.
  • Visit Community Shares to find out if your employer holds a Community Shares giving campaign.

Below are several other ways in which you can participate in the work of Habitat for Humanity through your workplace.

Matching gifts: Make a donation and double your impact. Many employers will match tax-deductible charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees and employees’ spouse. If you are not sure if your employer offers this option, please view our list of local companies that have a matching gift program, or inquire at your place of work.

State and local government employees: State or local government employees can donate to Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity through over 100 state and local workplace campaigns. Check to see if we are listed in your workplace campaign.

Thrivent Choice Dollars: Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity has recently been approved to become a participating organization in the Thrivent Choice program, which means Thrivent Choice Dollars® can be used to build homes, community and hope here in Milwaukee. If you are a Thrivent Financial for Lutherans member and are eligible to participate in this program, please consider directing your Thrivent Choice dollars to support Habitat’s mission.
