Letter from the Chief Development Officer: End-of-Year Contributions

As the end of each calendar year approaches, many people make additional contributions to their favorite charity to both support the mission and enhance their own financial profile for the year’s tax return.


If you find yourself in that situation, we hope you will give serious consideration to a Year End Gift to Knoxville Habitat for Humanity.  Our organization continues to be successful because of the generosity of so many individuals, companies, churches, civic clubs, and other groups in the Knox County community, and each gift – regardless of size – is important in enabling us to pursue our ministry and mission as we enter our second quarter century of service in this area.


We understand times are challenging at present.  We feel the strain as much as anyone.  If you can find room for an additional gift in your personal budget, we promise to use it wisely to fulfill the goal of building simple, decent affordable housing for low income families who want to embrace their small part of the American Dream:  homeownership.


In this month of the wonderful American tradition of families gathering to give thanks for their blessings, we at Knoxville Habitat for Humanity offer a special thank you for those who are a part of our extended “Habitat family.”


Have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving.


Robert A. (Archie) Ellis, Jr.
