Review for Habitat For Humanity Of Durham Inc, Durham, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering with Durham Habitat for over a decade. The organization continues to be extremely involved in local community development. The staff work with community members -- rather than providing a top-down, "hand out" series of initiatives -- to maximize the effectiveness and long term impact of the organization's efforts. The staff members exude passion for the Durham community and for social justice within it. The pluralistic approaches to programming and fundraising are inclusive to a diverse array of volunteers and donors.

With regards to fundraising specifically, Durham Habitat staff make the overhead expenses transparent and openly answer questions about allocation of donor dollars. The development team does an excellent job of ensuring all donors -- regardless of giving level -- feel needed, important, and valued. The organization does not over-solicit and is quite conscious of eschewing donor fatigue.

While I have not lived in Durham County for over five years, I continue to invest my time and financial resources in this Habitat chapter because of the tremendous work the entire Durham Habitat community continues to do.
