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 Habitat for Humanity, you may diversify away from low-basis, long-term holdings into other assets that will better suit your current needs.

Habitat-SCC has a few house sites waiting to be built on? We could use some help maintaining these lots! Our adopt-a-lot program is a great volunteer opportunity for youth groups as well as families looking to help keep our community clean…and to ensure that Habitat families have a beautiful yard when the time is right to build and then move in. Each group will be assigned its own lot. Some lots have houses that will be renovated or demolished; others are vacant. We ask that volunteer groups commit to keeping their lots clean and mowed during the Spring, Summer and Fall. You must be able to provide your own equipment. If this seems like a lot of work, considering sharing the responsibility with another group, family or a neighbor. Our current lots are in Plano and Wylie. If you would like more information on this program or have decided to adopt-a-lot, please contact Sid Buniff at 972.398.0634, ext. 104.
