We at Habitat Bangladesh, express special thank-you and gratitude to all our Tithe partners and global donors. From FY 2005 - FY 2008, Habitat Bangladesh received USD191,500 as Designated Tithe Donations from different US Habitat affiliates. As Tithe contributions we received USD 69,723 in FY 2007/2008 alone.
Habitat Bangladesh received another USD 6,185 in donations globally from individual donors and companies from December 2007 to June 2008.
Designated donations and individual contributions have exponentially increased during the last fiscal year. While Macomb County, Orange County and Gwinnett County remains our largest donors, HFH Victoria made a significant effort to encourage the students of Trinity school, aged from 3 - 14 years, to raise funds for HFHI Bangladesh. Though the contributions were small, the efforts were huge and we were certainly inspired seeing the compassion of these young kids.
Sincere thanks to our Tithe partners for their sustained support of Habitat Bangladesh:
Habitat Bangladesh also acknowledges all its local donors, Global Village and local volunteers for their tireless effort in supporting Habitat's house building activities for the low income people.
During the 1st quarter of current fiscal year or July-September 2008 the local fundraising stands at USD 11,900. Congratulations to our volunteers for Building Homes and Changing Lives through Habitat Bangladesh.
