Hi, I'm Sarah and this semester I will be serving as the co-fundraising director. I am a senior in Global Studies and have been involved in Habitat since I was a junior in high school. In the past I have served as the concessions chair and the secretary for our RSO. Feel free to contact me with any questions, and I hope to see you at all of our events! Outside of Habitat I enjoy travelling, biking, and fixing things.

Hey, guys! I'm a sophomore in Architecture and I got involved in Habitat my freshman year by going on a trip to Louisiana to work with a chapter in Lafayette. I made some amazing friends and had a great time, which pushed me to pursue a leadership role in our chapter. I love binge-watching stuff on Netflix, hanging with friends and listening to almost any kind of music.

Hi! I am a sophomore majoring in Communication! I am so excited to be a concession chair for Habitat this year! I got involved with Habitat my freshman year after going on a spring collegiate challenge trip to South Carolina. I had the time of my life and would 10/10 recommend going on a trip. Besides Habitat, I like to kayak, swim and sleep!!

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.
