A Message From Donna Bour-Purdy

This is the 16th year that women have been building homes with Flower City Habitat For Humanity within the city of Rochester neighborhoods. Since 2011, I've been honored to join hundreds of dedicated women in this journey to provide a Hand UP not a Hand Out to families that need just a little extra support.

The Women Build teams build one home per year from the ground up. Besides building, we also raise $75,000 to help with the costs of each home. I'm asking you to help support our home this year, located at 423 Jay Street in the JOSANA neighborhood. A multigenerational family will be purchasing this home when its completed.

Thank you for your consideration... Any amount will be helpful. You can donate online here, or ***TO DONATE BY CHECK: Make your check out to Flower City Habitat for Humanity. On the memo line, write Women Build, D. Bour-Purdy/SAWS2 Team. Send the check to: FCHH Women Build, 755 Culver Road, Rochester NY 14609.

Alternatively, i am selling handmade mittens made of recycled sweaters. Checkout my facebook page or send me an email at for pictures.

Thank you for your support!

About This Campaign

We are now fundraising for Flower City Habitat's 16th Women Build house, which will be built at 423 Jay Street!

The Women Build 2020 fundraising campaign has a different look this year. Large in-person events are much less likely to happen this year, so we need to rely more on creative fundraising – including small donations.

To help illustrate how impactful each donation is, we have compiled a “catalog” of some common materials that we use in building the Women Build house.

We have included example items in several donation ranges for you to consider. These are suggestions to help guide your donation, but you can always donate any amount that is comfortable for you.

We know that the global pandemic has had adverse effects on everyone. Please know that we will welcome donations in any amount. $5 and $10 gifts will help immensely. Your gift in any amount will help us buy all of the necessary construction materials and will enable Women Build teams to construct a lovely, safe, energy-efficient home for a hard-working family. We thank you for your support and generosity!

***TO HELP FUNDRAISE: Find your team, start a new team, or participate as an individual. Everyone sets their best fundraising and volunteering goals, and together we build a house!

Returning teams will have to create a new team page, but all returning individuals should login first with your existing account, then return to this campaign page (we suggest bookmarking this page).

**We will post a link here for volunteering when build days become available again.**

Questions? Email

***TO DONATE BY CHECK: Make your check out to Flower City Habitat for Humanity. On the memo line, write Women Build. If you wish to support a team or individual volunteer, please include their name after Women Build. Send the check to: FCHH Women Build, 755 Culver Road, Rochester NY 14609.

(NOTE: The dedication of 105 Holworthy Street has been postponed. We will update everyone when it is rescheduled.)
