Hit it out of the park for Habitat!

Take me out to the ball game, take me out to the crowd…

Since 2012 Consumers Energy Foundation has been helping local Habitat for Humanity chapters in Michigan hit “home runs” for families through their support of the Home Run for Habitat Campaign. This annual campaign helps local Habitat for Humanity chapters raise money through social media during the Tiger’s baseball season. For every two dollars raised by a local Habitat for Humanity, Consumers Energy Foundation will match a dollar for the local Habitat chapter. Not only does Consumers Energy Foundation match $100,000 for local Habitat for Humanity chapters, they also advertise the campaign throughout the season.

You can support your local Habitat for Humanity chapter by visiting www.homerunforhabitat.net. We hope you will give, since every dollar goes farther with the match. Donations to Habitat for Humanity help to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter for your neighbors. Decent and affordable shelter is something we all need in our lives.

In the last 5 years, Consumers Energy Foundation has matched $550,000 to the $847,000 raised by local Habitat chapters. This funding is critical to helping families buy their first home or keep their home in local communities. Habitat for Humanity of Michigan is extremely grateful to Consumers Energy Foundation for their commitment to the local Habitat for Humanity chapters and making home a reality for so many families across Michigan.
