Women Build 2023
March 25rd - April 1st
This will be our 24th year of Women Build and we hope you can join us! We will be building a home for Fernando & Alejandra on Wadmalaw Island! In order to reach our goal we need your help.
This year we hope to raise $75,000!
Women Build is an annual fundraiser where women in the community come together for a week to build a home for a hardworking Habitat Partner Family. The funds raised will be put toward building materials and making this home a reality!
This year we are building for Alejandra & Fernando on Wadmalaw Island. When asked what this project will mean to them, Alejandra said "This Habitat house will mean we have a place to call home - a place we can grow our family once we begin to have children."
To reach our goal this year we are offering three ways to actively participate in this event:
Option 1: Create a Fundraising Page
Peer-to-peer fundraising is when individuals organize personal campaigns to collect donations from their peers. You will be given tools to share this fundraiser with your contacts on social media and via email. For more information, check out this video!
** $50 minimum required to build. $250 in funds raised includes unlimited build shifts. If you don't meet the $250 goal, that's ok! We hope you will try to help us raise as much as possible!
Prizes for any fundraiser over $500, daily top fundraiser, and overall top fundraiser!!
Option 3: Sponsorship
Sponsorships allow us to reach our fundraising goal! Levels range from $500 - $20,000 and come with varying levels of benefits. All sponsors receive build shifts, logo visibility, marketing partnership, and Women Build t-shirts. Please contact Kristen@seaislandhabitat.org if you have questions about becoming a sponsor!
We need your help to reach our goal of $75,000 to make a home for Alejandra & Fernando!!
🔨 We need all skill levels. If you have a smile and can hold a hammer, we need your help. Our friendly staff will be on site to show you how to use every tool you're comfortable with.
🔨 Bring your friends. We welcome individuals and groups and Women Build is a great team-building experience.
🔨 Sponsor Women Build. Contribute much-needed financial support as a sponsor. Receive recognition in our Women Build publicity and on our hugely popular t-shirts.
For decades, Women Build volunteers from all walks of life have come together to build stronger, safer communities. During this week, women make a difference by helping build a decent and affordable home for a family that needs a hand up, not a handout.
Partner families contribute sweat equity and receive an affordable mortgage.
This year's Women Build will build a home for our partner family - Fernando and Alejandra! They will be with us on the job site every day during Women Build - helping build their new home and working towards their 400 hours of sweat equity.
Not comfortable with a hammer? We also need help in our hospitality tent to register participants, pass out snacks and water, keep an eye out for people who may need encouragement, and mention anything that needs attention to one of our staff. If interested, select Hospitality when you register for your desired shift(s) and we will get back to you.
