Build it Forward Legacy Society

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Greensboro’s Build It Forward Legacy Society was created to recognize the important role our donors play in continuing our mission of providing homes, communities and hope for Greensboro families into the future. We invite you to join our Build It Forward Legacy Society to provide more families with safe, secure and affordable housing by including Habitat Greensboro in your Will or Estate Plan.

“My  introduction to Habitat began as an office volunteer. As I got to know some of the Habitat homeowners, I learned how much having a stable home means to them. Home ownership plays such a major role for low-income families, shaping how they view themselves as community members and most importantly, giving their children the many benefits that a secure and safe home offers.  Observing first-hand the commitment and determination of the Habitat homeowners and volunteers, I decided to get more involved. I began donating and brought my family to volunteer on the construction site so they could see and appreciate the work that Habitat has been doing in Greensboro for 30 years.  My experiences with Habitat moved me to leave a lasting legacy by including Habitat Greensboro in my will.  I am proud to be a member of the Build It Forward Legacy Society and invite you to join me to ensure the future success of Habitat Greensboro!”
