A fundraiser with a mission
The Women Build program has three goals:
- Engage women with Habitat’s mission of working in partnership with low income families to provide affordable housing.
- Teach women construction skills.
- Raise funds in support of Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership program.
Over the last 5 years Women Build has developed several new programs to help achieve the 3 goals. Volunteers interested in engaging with Women Build can participate in Women Build Women Build Week as well as the Adopt-a-Day program.
Calling all women Volunteers! We need your help to fund a Women’s Build Home!
Each Women Build Week participant is asked to help support the project financially as well as through volunteer labor. Participants volunteering for one day of the build are asked to raise a minimum of $250. Individuals interested in volunteering for multiple days are asked to raise a minimum of $250 per day.
Each participant receives a t-shirt, women who raise $500 or more receive a customized hardhat, participants who raise $750 or receive a pink tool belt and participants who raise $1000 or more receive a pink hammer, utilizing knife and measuring tape.
And it’s super simple to fund raise your contribution to Women’s Build Week!
Some Women’s Build Week History
Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s invite women to build alongside future homeowners during the 10th annual National Women Build Week, May 6 through 14. Pikes Peak Habitat is one of 300 Habitat organizations nationwide hosting Women Build projects during the week with support from Lowe’s, a longtime partner in the event.
National Women Build Week brings together women to devote at least one day to building decent and affordable housing in their local communities. Nearly 100,000 women from all 50 states have volunteered in previous years.
