Team Volunteering with Habitat Philadelphia is a chance for your organization to commit a day to working together in an exciting, learning-based environment—all while making an important contribution to Habitat’s mission of building homes in partnership with families in need. To learn more about the Team Volunteer Program, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215.765.6000 x10.
Join us to:
- Strengthen team spirit and sense of presence in the community
- Interact with coworkers from all levels of your organization
- Build the effectiveness of your organization through the camaraderie of building together
- Help provide the funds needed to build affordable homes in Philadelphia
- Experience the thrill of immediate, tangible results at a Habitat project site.
There are two ways for your team to volunteer at Habitat Philadelphia:
1. Sponsor a Team Build Day at a Construction or WHRP site
We provide volunteer build opportunities for teams that sponsor their build day with a financial contribution*, which covers the costs incurred by your team of 10 volunteers working with us for a day of construction work. (Teams of greater than 10 can consider sponsoring multiple build days, as our schedule allows.) Requested amounts are as follows:
Build Day on a homebuilding or home repair construction site: $2,500.
Service Build (reserved for non-profits, schools, service and faith groups): $500.
Why do we ask your team to donate? On average, each Habitat house costs $140,000 to build, and each WHRP project costs an average of $10,000. Individual and group contributions are our most important source of funding, and your donation helps us supply the materials, training and supervision needed for a successful Team Build Day. Funds can be raised by individuals, companies, or through matching funds and other grants, and we’re happy to offer ideas for raising funds through projects, activities and events.
*Your donation is fully tax-deductible. Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. (Tax ID: 42-1580163)
2. Team Volunteering at the ReStore
Teams can volunteer at the Habitat ReStore without a financial donation (although voluntary contributions are always appreciated). This is a great option for all groups, including those that aren’t able to raise funds for a Team Build Day on a construction site.
How does it work? The ReStore accepts donations of new and used building supplies, home goods, appliances, etc., and sells them to the public at greatly reduced prices. All revenue goes towards future homebuilding projects—which means that volunteering at the Restore directly helps us raise money to build more Habitat houses! Volunteers help process, organize and stock donations, and provide customer service to visitors.
