A Historic Partnership

As Habitat for Humanity Canada’s largest philanthropic partner, The Home Depot Canada (THDC) and The Home Depot Canada Foundation (THDCF) set the standard for corporate philanthropy in Canada. More than any other corporate partner, THDC recognizes the challenge of securing mission-based funding for Habitat for Humanity while continuing to help more families find a safe and decent place to live.

Since 1996, THDC and THDCF have donated more than $47 million in cash and product donations to support Habitat for Humanity programs in Canada.  In 2012, THDC and THDCF donated more $9.3 million in cash and gift-in-kind, the single largest annual contribution in Habitat for Humanity’s Canadian history. 

For its philanthropic leadership around the principle that safe and affordable housing is a basic human necessity and in conjunction its partnership with Habitat for Humanity Canada, The Home Depot Canada and The Home Depot Canada Foundation were recognized in 2013 as Outstanding Corporation of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Greater Toronto Chapter.
Through their new philanthropic initiative, The Orange Door Project, THDCF has committed $10M pledge to support renovation and repair projects and programs that provide vulnerable and homeless youth with access to safe, stable housing and support services.
