Waiver of Liability
This Waiver of Liability (the “Waiver”) executed on this ____day of ____________, 20__, by
________________(the “Volunteer”) in favor of HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF SAN
ANTONIO, INC., a nonprofit corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of
Texas, USA, and Habitat for Humanity International, Inc. in Americus, GA, and both of their
directors, officers, employees, and agents (collectively, “Habitat”).
I, the Volunteer, desire to work as a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and engage in the
activities related to being a volunteer for a work project.
I hereby freely and voluntarily, without duress, execute this Waiver under the following terms:
1. Waiver and Release. I, the Volunteer, release and forever discharge and hold harmless Habitat and its successors and assigns
from any and all liability, claims, and demands of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, which arise or may hereafter
arise from my volunteer work with Habitat.
I understand and acknowledge that this Waiver discharges Habitat from any liability or claim that I, the Volunteer, may have
against Habitat with respect to bodily injury, personal injury, illness, death, or property damage that may result from my
participation on the Habitat work site. I also understand that Habitat does not assume any responsibility for or obligation to
provide financial assistance or other assistance, including but not limited to medical, health or disability insurance, in the event of
injury, illness, death or property damage.
2. Insurance. I, the Volunteer, understand that I expressly waive any such claim for compensation or liability on the part of
Habitat beyond what may be offered freely by the representative of Habitat in the event of such injury or medical expense.
3. Medical Treatment. I hereby release and forever discharge Habitat from any claim whatsoever which arises or may hereafter
arise on account of any first-aid treatment or other medical services rendered in connection with an emergency during my time
with Habitat.
4. Assumption of the Risk. I understand that my time with Habitat may include activities that may be hazardous to me,
including, but not limited to, construction activities, loading and unloading of heavy equipment and materials, and local
transportation to and from the work sites. I hereby expressly and specifically assume the risk of injury or harm in these activities
and release Habitat from all liability for injury, illness, death, or property damage resulting from the activities of my time with
5. Photographic Release. I grant and convey unto Habitat all right, title, and interest in any and all photographic images and
video or audio recordings made by Habitat during my work for Habitat, including, but not limited to, any royalties, proceeds, or
other benefits derived from such photographs or recordings.
6. Other. I expressly agree that this Waiver is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the State of
Texas in the United States of America, and that this Waiver shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of
the State of Texas. I agree that in the event that any clause or provision of this Waiver shall be held to be invalid by any court of
competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such clause or provision shall not otherwise affect the remaining provisions of this
Release which shall continue to be enforceable.
