Cornerstone Society

Habitat’s Cornerstone Giving Society is the vital foundation upon which Habitat can build more affordable homes in the greater Portland region. While Habitat homes are not made of stone nor are they monumental, they are hugely consequential in the communities where we build.

Cornerstone: noun. A marker serving as the starting place in the construction of a monumental structure made of stone or of masonry 

Cornerstone Society members are donors who provide significant financial means for Habitat to be able to buy land and materials, mobilize volunteers, and provide affordable mortgages to people across Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties. 

If your philanthropic plans allow, please consider an annual gift at a level to qualify for Cornerstone Society membership. See below to learn more about the impact you can make and the benefits you can receive as a member.
