Volunteer or Contribute

 You can begin by becoming a member. Members are encouraged to contribute to our campaigns, which include:

  • Youth Leadership Development
  • Land Acquisition and Development
  • Environmental and Wetland Protection

If you would like to volunteer with the North Gulfport Community Land Trust, we have many opportunities. We always have a number of projects underway from tutoring kids after school, to preparing a lot for development, to helping out in the office. It's easy and fun to volunteer. Please come and join us for a day or more!  We rely entirely on the contributions and grants and the good efforts of our many volunteers.  Please make your contribution today!

 

Buying Lots

We estimate that roughly 1/3 to 1/2 the lots in this community are vacant...and overgrown...and full of garbage...and have clouded titles... and all the necessary infrastructure to build a quality home for a North Gulfport family!

 We have found that we can purchase a parcel of land (a lot) for roughly $1/sq.ft. or $3,500 - $7,000. This is a lot that can be developed with a quality affordable house but because of title issues, is generally unmarketable. With our pro bono legal team, we are able to clear title on the lot, clean up the lot with our volunteers and build a home for our residents. It is a win for the homebuyer, the community and you (a tax deductible contribution).

Please consider making a contribution to the North Gulfport Community Land Trust and Buy a LOT for a LITTLE!
