Homeowners Impact Fund Update


Update on the Homeowners Impact Fund

In 2020, the Homeowners Impact Fund was launched in the Charlotte area. The vision is for everyone involved in a real estate transaction to give a minimum $10 donation in celebration of the home closing. Together, this would raise over $2,400,000 per year in the Charlotte area alone to be given to reputable 501(c)3 organizations to help support the homeless in our community. Over $85,000 was raised in 2020 and given to Safe Alliance, Urban Ministry, and Charlotte Family Housing. The money was used for rent subsidies and those who need short-term and long-term assistance in housing.

Did You Know?

59% of Americans are 1 paycheck away from being homeless. Rising costs of housing and lower wages are just a glimpse into the homeless crisis in our community. A donation of $1,000 can provide fresh new linens for 20 families; $2,500 can provide 1 day of meals for 400+ people in emergency homeless shelters; $5,000 can provide 1 month of shelter services for 50 families; $10,000 can provide 90 nights at a domestic violence shelter for a survivor and child; $15,000 can provide 1 year of support services and rental support for someone who was chronically homeless to be in permanent supportive housing.

Become A Supporter

In 2021, we have launched the corporate and individual partnership giving levels. How can you help? Become a sponsor, share the HIF with others, talk to your company about becoming a supporter. If we all give a little, together it will add up to a lot. There are many levels of partnerships available to support our local neighbors. See the many options on our website here.
