Tithing is a biblical principle that calls on believers to return the first fruits of their bounty back to God. Habitat for Humanity encourages all United States affiliates to share resources across national borders to help meet the extreme need for housing globally and work toward a goal of tithing 10 percent of unrestricted income.
Our vision of “a world where everyone has a decent place to live” extends beyond Wake County. Affordability is a critical issue in Wake County. Globally, housing needs are more diverse, with challenges ranging from land tenure to access to safe drinking water. Habitat Wake's tithe of $3,652, 351 has built 859 homes outside the United States since forming in 1985. Habitat Wake ranks as one of the top 1,400 Habitat affiliates in global building.
Habitat Wake's tithe supports the construction of Habitat homes in Cambodia, Honduras and Malawi and organizes global village trips to at least one of those countries annually.
Your financial support also can help us build globally! A donation to the Global Impact Fund is invested directly into building a home in one of our partner countries -- Cambodia, Honduras or Malawi. Thank you for helping us achieve our vision of a world where everyone has a safe, decent place to live.
