Collecting on our Pledge
Housing is transformative: with a safe, decent and affordable home and a stable community, families can provide security for their children; their sense of dignity and pride grow; their health, physical safety, and emotional security improve; and their educational and job prospects increase.
In 2012, the Department of Medicine pledged to raise $60,000 in support of building a home for for the Ayite family in the Sunrise neighborhood — the nation’s first trailer park transformation without resident displacement. Thanks to countless Department of Medicine and others, the Ayites are settled in and our pledge is now due.
Through the generosity of other faculty and staff, we are already nearly 2/3 of the way to our goal. But, we still need to raise $23,000 before June. Your donation will help us fulfill our pledge and enable Habitat to continue transforming lives and communities.
Your contribution counts! Together, we can reach our goal, using these suggested guidelines: -
- Administrative & research staff (about 300 people): $25 per person
- Faculty (about 240 people) - choose your level:
- 100 faculty @ $35
- 50 faculty @ $75
- 50 faculty @ $50
- 40 faculty @ $100
