Women Build 2018 - Fundraising

About This Campaign

Construction on the 14th Women Build house will start in May 2018, and fundraising is going on now. Help us build!

To help fundraise: Start your own team or join a public team today! We raise most of the money online, but we'll also invite you to our Women Build events. When you click participate as an individual, you will be given the option to join a team.

We currently have one public team: "All The Single Ladies". Young, not-so-young, single, married, complicated... this team is open to anyone! Join to build with other women and make new Habitat friends!

To help build: Construction volunteering begins on May 8 and you can get on the schedule now. To schedule or sign-up visit Women Build 2018 - Build Days page.

Teams set their own fundraising and building goals, and together we build a house! Team goals should grow with the size of your team. We generally recommend a goal of $200 raised per person and one build day for every 5-6 people.

    Thank you, generous recent donors! Thanks to you, I've met my $600 goal - so I will raise it in order to work additional days!
    August 8 - I worked a very full day, helping at a second house in the morning (shoveling dirt into the excavation, and then using circular saw and miter saw to cut foam insulation) and then the Women Build house all afternoon. Erwin guided our group of 6 women as we raised the first wall; framed the second wall, and raised it into place; and did the initial framing of a third wall. What an amazing feeling to stand back at the end of the day and see the house taking shape! August 11 there is an official Women Build "Raising the Wall"event at the house - I'll be there to celebrate all the women who have been working together, and to meet the homeowner.
    Thanks again to all!

    Melissa Matson always gives 110% in any project she is involved in. This is indeed a worthy cause and I am happy to contribute.

    August 4 - Happily hammering on the Women Build house, tolerating the 90-degree heat! Worked with
    wonderful people - Erwin was a great leader and teacher; it was fantastic to work again with Pam and Jim (we'd done the warehouse organizing earlier in the year); and Aisha was a strong co-worker. I'm looking forward to some more Build days soon!
