Habitat depends on our business partners to build affordable homes as event sponsors, in-kind donors and team builders.
Habitat’s Team Builders program provides an opportunity for businesses to participate in a hands-on team building session for employees while supporting the mission and work of Loudoun Habitat for Humanity. On the build site, volunteers work with our construction staff and partner families at various phases of construction for new construction and renovation. Activities range from framing and landscaping to flooring and painting. In addition to making a valuable contribution toward the home building goals of the affiliate, construction volunteers have fun and engage with Habitat communities through this enriching experience. Teams work together on-site to build interpersonal communication skills and confidence while contributing efforts towards building a home for a deserving family.
With a group of 10 – 15 volunteers, and a donation of $5,000, Team Builders experience a day of service planned specifically for their group. Your financial contribution helps with the cost of building affordable homes. Team Builders is a very popular program and can take several months to schedule. To become a Loudoun Habitat Team Builders partner, contact Kari Murphy, Habitat Development Manager.
Past Team Builders include Bank of America, Dulles Area of Realtor Association, Fairway Mortgage, Oracle, Sciolex, Tata Communications, Travelers Insurance, Wells Fargo, Xerox.
ReStore Team Builders
For businesses that would like to sponsor a team build but the $5000 donation is too high, consider a ReStore team build. Groups of 15 or less can come in after store hours during the week or on a Sunday to work on a variety of projects including painting, building, remodeling and stocking inventory. There is no donation required for a ReStore team build and your efforts help Habitat keep prices low in the ReStore which means more money to help build homes. Contact the store manager to learn more.
Habitat host two major events each year where local businesses can support the mission as an event sponsor. The Capital Steps show in November and the Masquerade Ball held in March are widely attended events that provide several marketing opportunities for business sponsors. As a sponsor, your business will be associated with the Habitat brand (an internationally recongnized non-profit) plus, your employees can attend these events to have fun and engage in the Habitat mission. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities, contact Kari Murphy, Habitat Development Manager.

Building a house requires lumber, nails, doors, windows, electric systems, heating and air conditioning, roofing – and the list goes on. When local businesses provide the materials, tools and expertise needed for house construction, Habitat is able to provide an affordable house to a partner family. Join our list of in-kind donors that include Anderson Mechancial, Beckstrom Electric, Kane Landscaping, Loudoun Valley Roofing, M.E. Flow, River’s Edge Landscaping to name just a few. Without these businesses, Habitat would not be able to build and rehab homes in Loudoun County. Contact Construction Manager Bud Green to see how your business can become an in-kind donor.
