Habitat County Habitat for Humanity is a well-respected nonprofit which has continued to serve the community since its founding in 1989. We have been able to do so through the generosity of numerous individuals, faith groups, businesses, and foundations, as well as through the monthly mortgage payments made by our Habitat homeowners.
We are committed to keeping overhead costs to a minimum and to maximizing our donors’ contributions. We have one 3/4-time employee (our Executive Director) + a PT independent contractor who helps to supervise our worksite. All other work is performed by our dedicated volunteers.
We endeavor to be the best possible stewards of the outstanding financial commitments made by our donors and partners to accomplish our mission. The links below (click on the icons) have been provided in the interest of transparency. We also welcome your questions, knowing that making a donation—at any level—can be a complex and difficult decision.
IRS Group Exemption Information: As noted at the bottom of each page of our website, Hancock County Habitat for Humanity, with employer identification number 01-0443774, is considered a subordinate under the group tax exemption umbrella of Habitat for Humanity International, Inc. (“HFHI”) under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The group exemption number assigned to HFHI, our parent organization, by the IRS is 8545, and their EIN is 91-1914868.
Our organization doesn’t appear on the IRS’s Exempt Organizations Select Check site [https://www.irs.gov/charities-non-profits/exempt-organizations-select-check] as we are a subordinate under Habitat for Humanity International and fall under their group exemption number, searchable by their EIN. (A few other Maine affiliates actually do appear separately, which can get a bit confusing!)
All donations made to Hancock County Habitat for Humanity are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Donations made by constituents in our service area through our parent organization, HFHI, do not necessarily funnel their way back to our local affiliate, but rather must be designated specifically to us and are then sent after HFHI takes an 11% administrative fee out of the donation. Please consider donating locally and directly. Thank you!
