Cars for Homes


Donate your old car to Habitat for Humanity of Trenton and help fund a new affordable home! Your used car or truck might just help a family build the home and life they have dreamed about. All vehicles are welcome. Care for Homes accepts cars, trucks, boats, RVs, motorcycles and construction equipment. Vehicles are accepted whether they run or not. Please visit our Cars for Homes page for more information. For any questions about donating a vehicle, contact Lacreda Riley at or call 609-393-8009 x226



Stocks and Bonds:


A charitable gift of stocks or bonds provides an opportunity for tax savings while generously sharing with others.  A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made.  If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation.  I addition to helping HFH of Trenton, you may diversify away from low-basis, long-term holdings into other assets that will better suit your current needs.  If you would like to discuss a gift of stocks or bonds, please call Lacreda Riley in our Development office at or call 609-393-8009 x226​ 



Property and Homes:

thumb_property.jpgWe can’t build homes without land to build on, so HFH of Trenton will accept donations of property and homes.  Please note that not all homes or property may be appropriate for our purposes.  If that is the case, we may be willing to sell or auction off the property and use the proceeds to build homes, or we may have to decline the offer.  Donating or discounting land to HFH of Trenton is an excellent way to help us build homes particularly in the area in which we live.  Tax benefits can be an excellent fit for some donors. To learn more, please contact Lacreda Riley at or call 609-393-8009 x226​ 



Building Materials and Tools


HFH of Trenton can use most kinds of building materials.  All materials must be in excellent condition.  We will provide a receipt indicating the materials or tools donated.  It is up to you to assess the value of the donation for tax purposes. If you can contribute any building materials or tools, please contact our Construction Coordinator, Dan Santa Lucia at or call 609-393-8009 x260​ 





Gifts in Kind:


Material gifts and donated services are always appreciated. Both gifts are tax-deductible. If you are interested in giving a gift of windows, doors, cabinets, paint, wood trim, or other essentials, please contact our construction coordinator Dan Santa Lucia at 609-393-8009 x260. We are also grateful for skilled construction services such as certified plumbers, electricians, dry wall installers, and HVAC installers.  If you have a service to offer our construction staff, please contact Dan Santa Lucia at or call 609-393-8009 x260
