Fundraise for Habitat Singapore
A major part of supporting Habitat includes fundraising to keep our work going. All fundraising efforts are directed to Habitat Singapore's general fund to support our local volunteering programmes, unless otherwise stated. Contributions are pooled together with gifts from other donors and distributed to meet the most urgent needs on the ground.
Fundraising efforts can also be directed towards subsiding the cost of your own Global Village trip or support a team that is going for a trip.
There are many ways to go about fundraising, and it can be done online or offline, or a combination of both. If you're not sure where to start, we've curated a list of fundraising ideas that have been carried out by previous supporters to help you get started!
9 Ways To Put The 'Fun' in Fundraising
Meet Our Supporter Role Models
Thomas Lim, HomeWorks Champion
Thomas has been a HomeWorks Champion for the last 4 years, serving in at least 1 HomeWorks session every month.
"I’ve been doing this volunteer work for the past 4.5 years. I have done more than 40 units and there’s a lot more to go. The reason why I keep up with this volunteer work is I’ve done a lot of volunteering work before but I definitely see this as (having) a much greater impact. And every homeowner deserves a decent home and most importantly, a hygienic place to live in."
Sharon Cheah, Global Village Team Leader
With 8 build experiences under her belt - half of which she led as team leader - Sharon has been one of Habitat Singapore's most active Global Village supporter.
"As a team leader, I have more freedom to go to countries I wanted to build in and work around my own schedule. Rather than waiting for the rare open teams to open up, it was easier to just get things started instead! It's been such a joy to see different team members come and work together for a common good."
Jessica Khoo, Carousell Fundraiser
Jessica's journey with Habitat Singapore started when she first joined as a Global Village and Project HomeWorks volunteer. Since May 2018, she has raised $550 from her Carousell sales in support of Habitat's work.
"[V]olunteering provides me with the opportunity to meet people and make new friends and at the same time giving back to the community in a meaningful way. By meaningful, I mean doing more than just cutting cheques to charities. I am thankful to be able to contribute and make a difference in the lives of the many families, children and elderly that I’ve come into contact with through the years."
