We are asking those who love our valley to consider making an investment in the future of the community. Chelan Valley Housing Trust needs your help to build attainable homes for our community’s wage earners. Your donation becomes a permanent investment in the community and is tax deductible. To donate, click here.

Gift Property: Leverage your land for GOOD!

If you own surplus or underutilized property in the Chelan / Manson area, please consider selling it at below market pricing to CVHT. Donating your land offers you an income tax deduction for its full appraised value, lets you avoid any capital gains taxes, and eliminates property taxes on that parcel. Selling your land at below market pricing gives you income from the sale plus the tax-reducing benefits of a donation, while eliminating property taxes on that parcel. Finally, you’ll make a difference in someone’s life and the lives of future generations. Land acquisition represents one third of the cost of creating housing. Your donation will help make an attainable home for some deserving member of the community. To find out more, please email

Become a Voting Member

Get in on the action! Each member can nominate new Board Directors, vote to elect new Directors, serve as a Director or Volunteer, vote on membership dues annually and the sale of land, and review annual financial reporting for the organization. With your input we will build homes that matter to YOU and your community! Thank you for becoming a member and being part of the solution.
