Hope of Home Society
The “Hope of Home” refers to the power of every donation made to Habitat for Humanity. Every donor gives the hope of home, with all the security, stability and comfort that it brings, to local neighbors with each gift. Members of the Hope of Home Society have committed to generously leave a gift that will impact their neighbors beyond their own lifetime. These members have invested in the hope of home for future Habitat clients, as well as in their own hope to make a lasting impact. That is a beautiful investment in the hope of home.
In celebration of these future gifts, and as a small gesture of our appreciation, Frederick Habitat offers the following benefits to each member of the Hope of Home Society:
- Invitations to every construction site ceremony, including Groundbreakings, Affirmation Ceremonies and Home Dedications
- Priority opportunities to volunteer on build sites or have a personalized visit to a build site in action
- Invitation to an annual donor appreciation event
- Exclusive communication on current and upcoming projects
- Name recognition on our website
- Special memorial feature celebrating your gift when it is realized
Our deepest gratitude to these Hope of Home Society Members:
Dorothy L. Etzler, Founding Member
