Thank you for your interest in partnering with San Diego Habitat for Humanity! Corporate build days can be a fulfilling way to engage and enhance your team while giving back to the community in San Diego County. Please complete the Group Interest Form and a member of the San Diego Habitat team will reach out to discuss options and availability.
How do build days work?
San Diego Habitat is able to customize build experiences to accommodate groups of varying sizes and interests utilizing several different options and projects including new construction, neighborhood revitalization, veteran home repair, ReStores, and playhouses.
For an exclusive team-building day for a corporate partner, we request that companies draw upon their corporate giving portfolio to help us, financially or with in-kind support, to continue to build homes, communities, and hope! In return, we provide a rewarding team building experience and customized exposure for your company that goes beyond the build day. The requested contribution is determined by the size and scope of your build day.
We're ready to build. What now?
After completing our Group Interest Form, a member of the San Diego Habitat team will reach out to discuss options and availability. Once your company is ready to confirm a date and build day plan, our team will prepare a Memorandum of Understanding outlining all details for signature. We’ll also provide a customized event flyer with an online registration link for your team. Each team member must register and complete the San Diego Habitat liability waiver online.
