The involvement of local business community is critical to the mission of Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley. From financial support to volunteer labor, donated materials to skilled labor - corporations and businesses play an integral role in everything Habitat can accomplish.
Habitat has identified various ways businesses can get involved:
The average Habitat house costs $90,000, with another $50,000 needed for land and infrastructure. Businesses can choose to offer financial support through a one-time donation, sponsoring the entire home, or anything in between
- Adopt-A-Day: Every home St. Vrain Habitat builds requires more than 2,500 hours of volunteer labor. An organization can commit workers to a single day of work, a particular phase of the building project, or any number of days throughout the build. Every build day, we spend on average $2,500 for materials. We ask that companies prayerfully consider the Adopt-A-Day program to help cover the cost of materials used in a day's work.
- House for a House: With a $5,000 donation, your company can help fund the construction of a home here in the St. Vrain Valley. Sometimes this gift can be used to sponsor the construction of an entire home built overseas in one of our partner countries. This helps Habitat reach the goal of building two houses internationally for every house built locally. With the House for a House Sponsorship, you gain 2 volunteer build days with up to 12 people per day. You will also receive public recognition for your contribution.
- Foundation Sponsorship: By contributing $10,000 to Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley, you help to pay for the construction materials needed for two weeks of construction for one Habitat home. Funds can be raised by individuals, companies or through other grants. As a Foundation Sponsor, you gain 5 dedicated volunteer build days with up to 12 people per day. You will also receive Habitat T-shirts and sponsorship recognition in several outlets.
- Full Home Sponsorship: This is the greatest commitment a business can make. An approximate $80,000 sponsorship can be undertaken by a single business or a group of businesses working together to provide all of the finances for a single home. In exchange for this gift, Habitat will guarantee your employees 20-30 dedicated team building days of your choice on the construction site. Your company will also be rewarded with public recognition at Habitat events and receive increased visibility in a variety of digital and print publications.
With any one of these sponsorship levels, your organization will gain visibility as a community supporter in a variety of outlets. Also, by giving back, you are helping ensure that everyone has a safe, decent, and affordable place to live in the St. Vrain Valley. To see a list of our current partners click here.
