Hi Everyone, My name is Greg Stroot and I am a Junior in Mechanical Engineering. I first joined Habitat last year and was first introduced through it from my cousin, who runs the chapter at Western Kentucky University. Outside of Habitat, I enjoy hiking, biking, flow arts, math, and pretty much anything outside

Hey guys, I'm Grace and this year I am a Co-Fundraising Director for Habitat for Humanity! I am a Junior in ACES, primarily studying international trade and policy! I became involved in Habitat freshman year when I went on an amazing Collegiate Challenge trip to South Carolina. If you ever have any questions feel free to reach out and I hope to see you at all our events, especially at our fundraisers! Outside of Habitat, I love napping and hanging out with friends!

Hi friends! I'm Jamie and I'm happy to be the Buildathon Chair this year! I am currently a Senior in Architecture minoring in Sustainability, Energy, and the Environment. I discovered what an amazing organization Habitat is on a Collegiate Challenge trip to Texas last winter break. I love the team-building opportunities and hands-on experiences that builds offer! When I can find the time, I enjoy traveling with friends, trying new foods, hiking, and going to cafes.

What Does This Committee Do?

Fundraising is one of the most fundamental aspects of Habitat for Humanity.  In order to build a home, there must be financial means of doing so. The average house in Champaign County costs approximately $65,000 to build. Our goal is to raise that amount over the course of two years in order to fund a home-build every other year. It is the role of fundraising directors to create and organize fundraising events throughout the semester in order to meet the obligations of the present house and plan for a future one. Fundraising will run about 5-8 events per semester.
 
Fundraising directors work closely together and are in charge of all internal fundraising events for Habitat for Humanity. Responsibilities include planning and making preparations for events such as canning, Assembly Hall, Bergner's Community Day Sale, and other events.
 
We are always looking for new fundraising opportunities. If you have any ideas or would like to get involved in planning for events, please email or see either fundraising director during office hours.
