Third Party Fundraising

Coordinate a Third Party Fundraiser-Give Back to Families in Your Community!

 

Hosting a Third Party Fundraiser is a great way to give back to your community! When you donate money to Habitat Montco you not only increase awareness of the critical lack of affordable housing options that are available to families in your neighborhood, you also contribute to the solution by making it possible for those low-income families to purchase a safe and stable place to call home. 

In the past, Habitat Montco has partnered with organizations like the International Furnishings and Design Association of Philadelphia, Corpus Christi School in Lansdale, PA, and even West Norriton Elementary to host third party fundraisers. Donations received from these exciting events have assisted Habitat Montco in completing build and rehabilitation projects in Glenside, Bridgeport, Hatfield, Upper Dublin, Lower Pottsgrove, Norristown and Pottstown. By hosting Third Party Fundraisers to benefit Habitat Montco, you are truly making a difference in Montgomery County!

FAQs

What is a Third Party Fundraiser?

Hosting a Third Party Fundraiser is just another fun way for you to get involved and serve more families in your community. Generally, a Third Party Fundraising event is orchestrated by a business, organization, or any other group who wants to help support Habitat for Humanity's work in their community. Event hosts designate a certain percentage of all proceeds raised during the event to be donated back to the organization of choice - in this case, Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County!

What will the money we raise go toward?

In the upcoming year, Habitat Montco looks forward to a wave of new projects we'll be undertaking in both Montgomery and Delaware Counties.  Starting July 2017, we will be opening up two additional ReStores, expanding our Neighborhood Revitalization zone into Delaware County, hosting three "Rock the Block" community clean-up events, and much, much more! All donations received from third party fundraisers will support the execution of these great events. 

When is the best time to submit my event proposal?

Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County receives many requests year round from organizations, companies, and individuals who are interested in coordinating a Third Party Fundraising event to benefit families in our community.  To ensure that we have enough time to consider, approve, and/or provide each applicant with the resources needed to make each event successful, we ask that all proposals be submitted at least 6 weeks prior to the proposed event date. Once decisions are reached, applicants will be contacted with the status of their applications. 

How much is each Third Party Event Fundraiser expected to donate to Habitat? 

Third Party Event coordinator is responsible for determining how much of the event proceeds will be donated back to Habitat for Humanity. This amount is to be clearly stated on all promotional materials for the event. The minimum donation amount is 20% of all proceeds.

What are some ideas of Third Party Fundraisers that I could do to support Habitat for Humanity?

Get creative! In the past, our supporters have raised funds through organized dress-down days, school-wide spirit events, and even 'upcycling" second hand furniture to be auctioned away at dinner parties. Don't be shy-experiment when it comes to planning your fundraiser!  To further assist you, we have even included a page of ideas at the very end of the enclosed application form. Be sure to take a look!
