Putting the FUN in Fundraising- ideas for the Faith Build


Fundraising can certainly be a challenge, but why not make it a fun challenge for all who are involved?

Teamwork is key!

Try to assemble a fundraising idea team- and then share your ideas with Habitat who will share ideas with ALL churches involved!

You don’t have to break the bank to raise funding

Start small with a fundraising challenge:

Can each congregant donate $1.00 to the Faith Build Habitat collection?

Can each congregant be challenged to ask 1 friend of family member to donate $1.00?

If each person donates $1.00 themselves and $1.00 from a friend or family that is a GREAT kick off to your efforts!

If people respond to that challenge, try weekly challenges of fundraising $5.00 or asking 5 friends or family.

Come up with a fun twist: “We have 55 congregants, can each of you donate .55 per day for 55 days?” Small amounts grow quickly and not too overwhelming when broken down.

Involve Youth

Many churches have asked how youth who are too young to be on an active worksite can help the Faith Build- why not have them help fundraise?

Start small: Habitat can custom design a collection box for your church so that youth can collect change for the Faith Build- if you want a challenge create a calendar using items that relate to being in a home “place 5 cents for every light switch in your home”. This activity will help children connect what they are raising to building a home, and help them realize how much they have in their own lives.

Have a bake sale- children love to help in the baking, decorating and let’s be honest “taste testing” of baked goods! This type of activity is fun, incorporates families working together and everyone wins because the donors get a sweet treat!

Do you have teens looking to help raise funds? What about a babysitting night at church? Teens (and a few adult supervisors) volunteer their services, a minimal baby-sitting cost is determined and funds raised can be donated to the Faith Build.

Collect Change

Did you know that a 5 gallon water jug can hold approximately 38,000 pennies? That’s $388!

Want to create a challenge fill the 5 gallon bucket with quarters- you can raise over $4,000!
