An integral part of Habitat for Humanity is fundraising – after all, nails aren’t free!
To sponsor a house build through Lafayette Habitat for Humanity, the Purdue Habitat chapter must raise $55,000 every year. We have several events each year to help us accomplish this goal:
- Bucket 100 Bicycle Tour: This 2-day bike ride from Purdue to IU is entirely student run. The most recent Bucket 100 raised almost $14,000 and was held October 17th and 18th, 2015.
- Cover Indiana Bicycle Tour: This 7 day bike ride, organized by Lafayette Habitat for Humanity, starts from Lafayette the Sunday after finals week and tours the Southern part of Indiana. This year, the Cover Indiana is May 8th – May 14th, 2017.
In addition to our annual events and programs, PUHFH also relies on individual donors from the Purdue and Lafayette community who donate to our cause. We are continually working to develop this base of donors to help supplement our fundraising efforts.
If you would like to donate to the Purdue Student Chapter, contact Samaah Al-Najjar, VP of Fundraising, at firstname.lastname@example.org. All donations go directly to the $55,000 building sponsorship costs through Lafayette Habitat for Humanity.
