Planned Giving


When you make a planned gift to Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver in your estate or long-term financial plans, you help ensure that we'll be here — committed to decent and affordable homeownership — for many years to come.

I knew Habitat would cherish and steward a legacy gift as much as instant cash. I wanted to make a larger financial difference that I knew I couldn’t do with a traditional gift.” - Doris Stipech, former Habitat Metro Denver Board member and long-time Habitat supporter
