Designated overseas contributions

Habitat Bangladesh wishes to express a special thank-you and gratitude to all our Tithe partners and global donors. From FY 2005 - FY 2008, Habitat Bangladesh received US$191,500 as Designated Tithe Donations from different US Habitat affiliates. As Tithe contributions we received US$69,723 in FY 2007/2008 alone.

Habitat Bangladesh received another US$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 FY 2008. While Macomb County, Orange County and Gwinnett County remain HFHI-Bangladesh’s 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 children.

Sincere thanks to our Tithe partners for their sustained support of Habitat Bangladesh:
