20th Anniversary Habitat for Humanity video

In 2014, CIPH celebrated 20 years of support for Habitat for Humanity. Over that time our members have raised funds, donated product and built homes in support of their mission to build affordable housing and promote home ownership as a means of breaking the cycle of poverty. 

CIPH considers it a privilege to be able to advance this mission from coast to coast and is excited about the results that have been achieved over the last 20 years. We encourage all of our members to actively get involved as we recognize this milestone which is a salute to the compassion and community of our industry and our members.
For the campaign which began on January 1, 2014, CIPH is challenging out membership to raise $2,000,000.  There are three ways to contribute to this goal:


  1. Provide "product certificates" for products that can be used in Habitat homes across the country.
  2. Donate cash which is desperately needed to purchase land for Habitat homes – ALL MEMBERS who contribute $25,000 or more including a minimum of $5,000 in cash are considerer MAJOR Donors
  3. Donate obsolete/discontinued product to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore. All donations will be sold through a Habitat ReStore. Donors will receive a tax receipt for 50% of the retail value of the donation.
    Think Green – Think Habitat.
    Help divert this product from landfills.
