MVHH is responsible for raising all of the money necessary to construct affordable housing and maintain its operations. By partnering with volunteers and homeowners, we keep our construction costs down, but in today’s building climate it still costs between $125,000 – $150,000 to build one of our homes. We work very hard to keep our administrative overhead costs down, and over 85 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to construction and family services expenses. Our work of building decent affordable homes depends greatly on generous contributions, and the building support from individuals, corporations and local businesses, faith-based organizations, and youth groups.
There are many ways to donate to Merrimack Valley Habitat – and they are all easier than you may think! MVHH is a tax-exempt 501(c) organization and all contributions are tax-deductible.
Merrimack Valley Habitat is committed to our donors’ privacy. We will neither sell nor share any of our donor lists.

Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity is always looking for additional building sites. Without land on which to build, we cannot move on our mission to provide safe and decent housing for our partner families. If you have land to donate or know of any available parcels of land that could be purchased at a substantially reduced price, please call 978-681-8858 and ask for Sharon or email firstname.lastname@example.org
