Volunteer with a Group
Groups (3-8 people) are scheduled on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays all year. Sign up to reserve a group volunteer date by e-mailing Habitat or calling 608-255-1549 The construction schedule is usually set about two months out, so please call well ahead of time to reserve a date for your group.
Faith groups may wish to join an Apostles Build, where 12 faith communities join together to provide the volunteers and funds for one home. To learn more contact Habitat’s volunteer team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 608-438-7415 ext. 209
Large groups from businesses wishing to volunteer can consider partnering on a specific home over multiple days for a deeper partnership via sponsorship, a one-day one-of-a-kind large team building experience with a panel build in your parking lot, or our all new exciting and meaningful Team up for Habitat team building experience perfect for groups of up to 24 people.
We depend on the generosity of our donors and volunteers to help us keep services affordable for our partner families. The average cost of building a Habitat home in Dane County is $120,000. We fundraise every dollar. If you are able, we’d humbly ask your group to consider making a one-time tax deductible gift to help us cover the costs of materials, registration, insurance, and administration. It costs about $1,500 for materials per volunteer day. That works out to $188 per person. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated.
Host a Fundraiser
In addition to volunteers, we welcome your group’s assistance in helping us raise funds! Ideas include holding a supply drive for our wishlist items, host your own fundraiser to sponsor your build day, or help with our Thrivent Builds projects. We’ve had everyone from preschool groups collecting loose change and tools to a church holding a Friday Fish Fry. Email Aaron Mullins at email@example.com or call 608-255-1549 ext. 121 for more information or for help coordinating your event.
Cars for Homes Promotion
By placing door hangers on homes throughout the Dane County area, volunteer groups help promote Habitat’s Cars for Homes campaign. Proceeds from donated vehicles go to your local Habitat affiliate. Volunteer for two hours or a whole day, as a group of 4 or 40, east, west, wherever! Gather your friends, family members, church congregations, or youth groups and participate in neighborhood canvassing. Email Brenda Wehland at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 608-255-1549 ext.150 for more information.
