Each Habitat affiliate is “born” when it signs a covenant with Habitat for Humanity International, pledging, among other things, to “give forward” 10% of eligible gifts to the international work of our global organization. This commitment to tithe results in millions of dollars provided by affiliates throughout the U.S. for thousands of building projects around the world.
Yet, the actual dollar amount is secondary to the spirit in which the tithe is given. That can either mean designating the dollars given for work in a particular country, or sending the money to the general “tithe pool” at HFHI (where 100% is then distributed to Habitat’s worldwide work).
At Central Minnesota Habitat for Humanity, we currently choose to partner with Habitat International for builds in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Paraguay, and Nicaragua. In total, our contributions have, so far, built over 97 homes in those locations!
Thank you for helping us support affordable housing, not just in Central Minnesota but across the world.
