Nissan is now in its sixth year of contributing to Habitat for Humanity, the international non-profit organization focused on building affordable housing for those in need throughout the United States.
Nissan’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity began five years ago, following the devastation of the 2005 hurricane season. It started with an annual donation of $1 million dollars. By 2011 that dollar amount had more than doubled, with the company giving $2.5 million to support sustainability, building efforts, training and awareness. To date, Nissan has given a total of $7.5 million to Habitat projects and sponsored the construction of 50 homes.
In addition to monetary donations, Nissan assists the organization by donating vehicles and encouraging Nissan employees to volunteer. 5,000 Nissan employees have helped with construction projects since the partnership began; last year, Nissan donated 50 Titan trucks to support rebuilding efforts in the Gulf Coast region.
