THANK YOU to all of the artists, donors, guests, and volunteers who made this year's ScanDesign Fall in Furniture Love Art Event such a wonderful success!
The world might celebrate Earth Day on April 22, 2013. But, every day is Earth Day at the Habitat for Humanity of Jacksonville ReStore!
You can help Mother Earth by donating furniture, construction material and appliances to the ReStore. These items are sold and the proceeds go toward building high quality affordable housing in Jacksonville. Find out more here.
Birdies for Charity
In 2012 The Players gave $6.5 million to local charities. THE PLAYERS Birdies for Charity program helps local nonprofits raise more dollars. Click here to find more information on how you can participate!

Give for Today

Give for Tomorrow


 Ways to invest today

 and improve tomorrow

 through Planned Giving 



Stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other appreciated securities may be donated to HabiJax as a gift now. A benefit of such a gift, beyond the charitable income tax deduction, is the avoidance of capital gains tax on the appreciation. 


The Future-
In addition to providing a current gift, securities may also be part of the planned giving process. Also, through a will, living trust, beneficiary designations on a life insurance policy and an IRA/401K, you can continue to support the mission of HabiJax beyond your lifetime. Your will can state specifically what you would like to donate and may include securities, a specific amount of money, a percentage of your estate or a specific asset or piece of property. Charitable bequests could reduce the amount of estate taxes your beneficiaries may owe.

Your Legacy gift will have an impact on the lives of future HabiJax homebuyers. 


Please consult with your financial planner or attorney to determine the best way to make your legacy gift to HabiJax. For additional information on planned giving, please contact Mary Kay O'Rourke at
