Fundraisers

Two of our main fundraisers are the Flag Program and the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, both of which owe their success to a dedicated group of volunteer workers. Participants in the Flag program pay a small annual fee to have an American flag placed in their yard on five holidays during the year. The ReStore sells donated new and used furniture, appliances, books, building supplies, and household items to the community at affordable prices.

Sponsoring A House

Each Habitat house in Bulloch County is sponsored by a group which contributes funding and usually provides some or most of the labor to build the house. The average cost for a Habitat house is about $60-70,000. The sponsorship amount is a minimum of $10,000. The sponsor fee is applied directly to materials and construction costs of sponsored house. The balance of costs comes from direct contributions, affiliate fund-raising projects and mortgage payments paid by current Habitat homeowners, and supporting sponsorships. Most sponsors provide all or some of the volunteer labor to build their sponsored house. Funding-only sponsorships are also welcome. Habitat will solicit additional volunteer labor as appropriate.

Potential Sponsors

Any organization is welcome to sponsor a Habitat house, including businesses, churches and civic groups. A sponsor may be a single organization, or a group of organizations that decides within its members how much each organization will raise. In addition to the satisfaction of helping the community, most groups report a greater sense of unity and personal growth among participants in the building project. Individuals may also sponsor homes, and memorial sponsorships are welcomed. Sponsors are asked to participate in groundbreaking or worksite blessing ceremonies, and dedication ceremonies upon completion of the house. Sponsors provide lunches for their volunteers on the work site. Sponsors are asked to provide crew leaders and other volunteer leaders for their house. Sponsors are asked to not make any gifts of clothing, furniture, etc. to homeowners while house is under construction.

Circle of Faith

Local churches, who understand our Christian mission, have been among our strongest supporters since our founding in 1991, helping us in ways large and small, as we have built our first 65 houses. Right now, four more families are waiting for the simple blessing of the opportunity to buy a home of their own that they can afford. The mission of Habitat for Humanity of Bulloch County is to provide that opportunity to these families – and to the many other families in need of simple, decent, housing. We invite all the churches in our community to join our mission through the Habitat Circle of Faith. Through this partnership, your church can support Habitat in the way that suits your congregation.
