Habitat for Humanity

  1. If you don't know what they're about, they basically sell homes to financially lesser-off people for cheaper than market value. They get land donated to them, materials donated, and labor donated.

    These guys just came to my work asking for labor contribution. They claimed, and reinforced on their website, that they are a non-profit agency. But are they really? With all the donations.... They had to be making bank selling homes (even cheap homes) before the housing bubble popped.

    I guess my questions are: can these people inflate their salaries when "profits" increase so that they can claim none was made. Are there any other loop-holes "non-profits" can take?
  2. Ummm. I highly suggest you volunteer for a Habitat for Humanity build sometime to see what it's really about.

    Habitat Humanity has been an integral part in the rebuilding of New Orleans after Katrina. I volunteer at a build at least twice per semester.
