The Charitable Housing Agreement (“CHA” or“Agreement”) is a legally recorded contract initiated by the builder and between the seller and Homeful that records an agreement on the title of real property (“Participating Homesite”). This contract affords Homeful the right to collect the Fee — 0.001% of the gross sales price of a home — on the original sale (as defined in the CHA) and all subsequent sales of a Participating Homesite. Should you require a copy of the Agreement, please contact your Escrow Company and/or Title Company. If you are unable to obtain a copy of the CHA from your Escrow Company and/or Title Company, please email us at email@example.com (reference community name, tract & lot in the subject line).

Yes, all contributions made to Homeful are tax deductible.
