Thrivent Financial contributes up to 50% of the funding for each home built through a Generosity Challenge Match—and Habitat NYC has been awarded $225,000. Churches involved in the program are challenged to raise the other 50% of the home cost through fundraising, gifting, and other activities they choose—with your help, we will raise the matching $225,000 for this special project.
Once a home is complete, it’s not just given away for free. Instead, Habitat NYC sells it to the family through an affordable mortgage. Then, the homeowner’s monthly mortgage payments, which they make directly to Habitat, are used to help build even more Habitat homes.
