every team can build strength, stability and independence


Habitat for Humanity Build Days are the perfect opportunity for teams to come together and show their strength for an incredible cause

Your group members will be outfitted with hardhats and power tools and will work with an experienced team of Crew Leaders.

Whether they’ve never swung a hammer or are seasoned pros, we have all the tools, safety training and instruction they’ll need. All they’ll have to bring is themselves and we’ll take care of the rest!

If you're looking for our individual volunteer opportunities, you can find more information here.

What your group gets:

  • A day on a Habitat for Humanity build site
  • Discovery of your inner construction pro and a glimpse into the home building process
  • A day of team-building with members of your group
  • The opportunity to take action to address the challenge of affordable housing facing thousands of families right here in Calgary
  • The chance meet and learn about Habitat homeowners

What your group gives:

  • A fundraising pledge
  • Corporate and business group fundraising minimum: $5,000
  • Community and non-profit group fundraising minimum: $1,500

Your financial contribution helps us pay for the land, materials and expert trades that we need to complete each build project. We’re tremendously grateful for volunteers who give their time, but we would not be able to build without financial support.

You’ll get access to our online system to build a custom team fundraising page. Your team members will get to engage their entire network of family and friends in their work with Habitat and tax receipts will automatically be issued for each donation. We’ll give you all the tips and tricks to make even a first-time fundraiser feel like an experienced pro.

And, as a participating charity in the 2019 Shaw Charity Classic, every donation to the Build Day Program prior to September 2 will be matched up to 50% through Shaw Birdies for Kids, presented by AltaLink, making your fundraising efforts go even further.



“This was an awesome experience and I wish it on everyone!”
