Thousand Beacons of Light Club (TBOL)
Become One of the 1000
Each time we build a home, we need a sponsorship of $50,000 in order to start the next one. This acts as the “seed” money to help us cover initial costs that won’t be covered by volunteers such as land prices, water and sewer hookup, and more.
Our goal is to have 1000 people that have pledged to donate $50.00 each time we finish a home so that we can raise $50,000 to start the next one!

Plan for the Future - How Will You Make a Difference?
Making a planned gift will have an impact that will be felt for generations to come, while also offering financial flexibility and tax benefits for you and the people you care about most. Join Habitat’s Legacy Society by including Habitat in your estate plans.
First, make arrangements to benefit Central Valley Habitat for Humanity beyond your lifetime. These arrangements might include a bequest in your will, or a plan that provides life income and income tax benefits, like a Charitable Gift Annuity. This can also be done by contributing to our Endowment with the Community Foundation of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County.
Second, let us know about your plans. It is not necessary to specify a dollar value for these plans, but having some idea of the details allows us to plan for the future and is appreciated.

Great Community Give
Be Part of a County-Wide Giving Day!
We participate in the area-wide giving day each year called the Great Community Give. The Give is spearheaded by the Community Foundation of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County.
Participating non-profit organizations in our area choose projects that we need funded and have one day in the spring each year to encourage donors to fund these projects.
The Great Community Give is an initiative of The Community Foundation and gives you the opportunity to sponsor and donate to your favorite local nonprofit.
All donations this day will be through www.greatcommunitygive.org and are tax-deductible. Help make Harrisonburg and Rockingham County’s biggest day of giving successful. Whether you donate $10, $20, $100 or more, it adds up to an incredible day of support for the nonprofits that meet needs, enrich our lives, and build a community we all enjoy.
