Core Mission Support

Our Funding Model

Core Mission Support re-visions how we talk about expenses. It helps express the true value of things and people. These expenses are typically viewed as “overhead.” In actuality, it takes Rebuild Upstate an average of $6,000 to repair one home, all inclusive.

Each staff member and resource is important to sustaining a healthy and vibrant organization. it takes more than lumber and screws to fully support the low-income homeowners we serve. By revisioning our expenses, we can communicate the true value of all our resources.

Direct Program Expenses

Core Support: Finance, HR, & Board
