Fund for Humanity Builds
The Fund for Humanity developed out of the concept of “partnership housing.” The concept centered on those in need of adequate shelter working side by side with volunteers to build decent, affordable houses. The houses would be built at no profit. New homeowners’ house payments would be combined with no-interest loans provided by supporters and money earned by fundraising which would then be used to build more homes. Today, The Fund for Humanity refers to a collection of funding sources, including: capital from loan sale programs, loan payoffs, monthly Habitat mortgage payments, unrestricted fundraising and net proceeds from the ReStore.
