Addressing the Future

Join the Carpenters’ Club
You can invest in your community without breaking your budget. Help Habitat for Humanity Thunder Bay partner with more low-income families by pledging your financial support each time we build a new home or renovate an existing house.
Join the Carpenters’ Club and pledge from $25 to $1,000 for each home we complete and dedicate. Your financial obligation will not exceed three homes per year. Your commitment can give our project that extra boost it needs to turn house plans into a dream home!
All the money raised by Club members will be designated for use exclusively to build Habitat homes for families, not for administrative or other expenses. You will receive one tax receipt for the combined total of your annual donations the following January.
Help us to Address the Future! Sign, detach and mail the below information to show your support. You will be reminded by phone or email two weeks prior to the dedication date - the date your contribution will be due. And, better yet, you will be invited to tour the home and meet the family at the home dedication!
Contact Habitat for Humanity Thunder Bay at 345-5520 if you have any questions.
