Habitat for Humanity Trenton and Weidel Real Estate Team Up To Help Families

One House at a Time

Pennington, NJ – You’ve probably heard of bake sales or car washes to raise money. Now, if you or someone you know is buying a house, that home purchase can help raise money for Habitat For Humanity Trenton.

Habitat for Humanity Trenton has teamed up with Weidel Real Estate through their new Community Partners program to help families one house at a time. Clients who enroll in the Community Partners Program are eligible to receive up to half a point of the purchase price of their home to donate to a Community Partner. Sellers are eligible to donate a portion of the commission to a Community Partner as well.  If the Client's employer provides matching funds for nonprofit donations, please let us know and Weidel will facilitate, if eligible, to make the donation all the more impactful.  Princeton Mortgage is also refunding their mortgage application fee to closing for buyers who donate through the Community Partners program.

“For the past 100 years, Weidel has been deeply rooted in the community and we believe strongly in the good work Habitat For Humanity Trenton does,” says Rich Weidel III, Director of Business Development at Weidel.

Habitat For Humanity Trenton’s vision is, “a community where everyone has a decent place to live.” Habitat advocates to improve access to decent and affordable shelter and supports a variety of funding models that enable families with limited resources to make needed improvements on their homes. Since the organization was founded in 1986, Habitat For Humanity Trenton has helped to repair and maintain an additional 250 homes in the greater Central Jersey region. 

If you or someone you know is house-hunting or if you would like more information,  or call 1-800-288-7653. Home buyers who choose Habitat For Humanity Trenton as their nonprofit designee through this new program will be able to say proudly, “I contributed so another could have an affordable place to live.”
