Fundraise

Fundraising for Greater Matthews Habitat for Humanity is a unique opportunity to take a proactive step in serving our community. By sharing your passion and goal with your friends and family or coworkers you can double your impact to increase donations and awareness.


Having an event is fun: you can do something that holds special meaning for you. It's flexible: you can fundraise on your own time, and in your own unique way. And it's super easy: essentially, any funds beyond your break-even amount will go towards helping individuals in our community who need it most. So, explore your hobbies, find a particular need in your neighborhood. Whatever your plan, we encourage you to think locally, doing good right where you live.

Crowdfunding, Facebook Fundraisers

Set up your personal fundraising page with GMHFH and send emails to family, texts to friends, and share your fundraiser through social media.

Tournaments

Sports tournaments, gaming events, or “a-thons”s

Ask family members, neighbors, or friends to sponsor participants to run, walk, spin, bowl, read, dance, or golf. Choose activities that your group would find unique or fun!
