A Message From Tracy Burkovich
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Women Build! I'm working with a great group of women, some from Gates Presbyterian Church along with my team Calico Hammers helping to raise $65,000 towards this years Women build house.
I served as Treasurer for the Women Build Steering Committee in the past which gave me a behind the scenes look as well to help build the program for the long term.
I always enjoy supporting Habitat and actually look forward to my days out of the office for some manual labor. Despite being sore the next day, the benefits last long after. This is especially true when driving in the Josana neighborhood & passing many houses that I have worked on. The prior owners take such pride that you can tell which are Habitat houses, not only from the great designs but also the continued care & upkeep.
Flower City Habitat believes in "a hand-up not a hand-out," so we'll be building alongside the Habitat family and other future homeowners. After earning their 450 hours of sweat-equity, they will pay an interest-free 30-year mortgage on their home.
The goal I've pledged will help reach our team goal & annual Women Build goal, please consider contributing so that we can improve the quality of life and neighborhoods in our own backyard.
About This Campaign
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.
