Women Build 2023 - Our 19th house! logo
Women Build 2023 is here and we are building a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath, new home at 535 Hayward Avenue! Women raise the funds to build this house and we volunteer to construct it. Please read these instructions to participate:

To support us financially: Online donations can be made using the button to the right. Note that when making an online donation, the amount added to the fundraising thermometer is the total donation minus credit card processing fees. Please consider opting to cover these processing fees in the online donation checkout so that your full donation goes towards our fundraising goal.

Alternatively, donations can be made via check to Greater Rochester Habitat for Humanity at 755 Culver Road, Rochester, NY 14609. To ensure your donation is credited correctly, please include "Women Build" and the name of the team and/or participant you are supporting in the check memo. Thank you for supporting our 2023 build!

To volunteer for construction:

Women Build teams are central to the Women Build program, it's how we raise money for a new Habitat home each year, and it's how we schedule most of the construction shifts on this house!

To participate in Women Build 2023, please follow the instructions below to create or join a team. Volunteering instructions will be sent to registered team members, giving them first opportunity at reserving construction days.

Join or start a team:

Returning teams: Scroll down to see if your team page has been created. If it is, click the "participate as an individual" button near the top right, then join your team (on the following page). If you don't see your team page yet, email your team leader and ask them to set it up.

New team leaders: Are you starting a new team this year? Simply click the "register your team" button to create your team page, then share it with your team members so that they can join.

Fundraising goals: Not sure about how big of a goal to set? We recommend starting with a goal of $200 as an individual (and a corresponding team goal of $200 per person on your team). This is an attainable goal for most people and many will beat their goal, adding to the enthusiasm and momentum!
