Home sponsorships

Durham Habitat relies on generous neighbors, groups, faith communities, and businesses for each project’s start-up capital.  Our home sponsors partner with our homebuyers to purchase building materials and provide volunteer labor for new homes and home repairs.  For more information, click here.

Teambuilding activities

netappA $2,500 investment secures a special team building activity for your group. Durham Habitat offers the unique opportunity to build productive team relationships while building our local community.

Teams learn to appreciate varying skills sets while working together on Durham Habitat’s construction sites to build, rehab and repair homes in Durham. We can accommodate 10-20 volunteers per site and are happy to incorporate your organizations team building activities.

Playhouse Teambuilding is another unique way to build community with Durham Habitat. Teams of 15-30 volunteers transform a stack of building materials into a vibrant 5’ X 4’ playhouse. The playhouse is either raffled off or donated to a local non-profit chosen jointly by Habitat and the team.

Percent of sales promotions

For retailers and restaurants, choose a special shopping/dining time period (day, week, month) and a percentage of the net proceeds are donated to Durham Habitat.  This can also be done with the sale of a particular menu item or retail item; or just an overall donation can be made from proceeds received.

CEO Build

Top executives from the Triangle partner annually with Habitat for Humanity to help make the dream of home ownership a reality for deserving families in Chatham, Durham, Orange, and Wake counties.  In addition to providing a unique networking opportunity for area CEOs, the CEO Build project provides high corporate visibility and concrete opportunities for area companies to involve their employees in giving back to local communities.
