In Kind Giving


Donations are a huge part of Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity, and In-Kind donations are just as important as monetary ones.

What are in-kind contributions?

Goods like computers, software, new building material and office equipment
Services like meeting space, photocopy and mail services and administrative/financial support

Expertise like legal, tax or business advice; marketing and strategic planning.

Real Estate


With the high cost of land and homes in Ocean County, property acquisition has always been the greatest challenge we face. Without land, we cannot build and if we cannot build, we cannot achieve our goal of eliminating poverty housing and homelessness.

A charitable gift of land or of an existing home enables us to continue helping families in need and it provides you, the donor, with an opportunity for tax savings. A gift of real estate owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. Additionally, if the real estate has appreciated, you avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation.

If you would like to donate real estate, please contact Diana Giulianio at
