Our fundraisers help offset costs for travel, accomodations, and equipment. For break trips, the affiliate requires an additional contribution from each student, and this cost is subsidized by UChicago Habitat as well.
This year we've been at it again: selling baked goods at Mandel Hall for the Chicago Presents Concert Series. We will continue this throughout the year, and years to come.
Two years ago, we had our biggest fundraising event yet. Chicago Habitat recieved a matching grant from State Farm. We spent the entire year raising $10,000 so that we could give double that amount to our affiliate in Gary, Indiana. It was an exciting process, and it definitely paid off.
