Campus Chapters

Organizational Structure

What is a campus chapter?

A campus chapter is a student-led, student-initiated organization on a high school or college campus that partners with the local Habitat affiliate.

Building

Campus chapters partner with Habitat affiliates to build and rehabilitate homes in partnership with Habitat homeowners. There are many ways a campus chapter can get involved with building:

  • Working locally with a partner affiliate
  • Participating in a Collegiate Challenge
  • Going on a Global Village trip

Fundraising

Campus chapters raise funds to support the work of local Habitat affiliates, contributing both to their local affiliates and to Habitat for Humanity’s global mission. Chapters may contribute through house sponsorship, the tithe program (donations to a Habitat for Humanity affiliate outside of the United States), general donation to Habitat for Humanity International and Collegiate Challenge Global Village.

Advocating

Campus chapter leaders and members are advocates for affordable housing, helping increase awareness of the problem of substandard housing and calling for action to initiate change.

Educating

Campus chapters educate others on their campuses and in their local communities about the mission and work of Habitat for Humanity. Many chapters offer speakers, do tabling and create other opportunities to inform their fellow students and members of their communities about the mission of Habitat.
