A Smart Investment

Your Donations Go Further With Home Preservation

It costs an average of $100,000 to build a new, volunteer-built affordable housing unit. Rebuild Upstate’s average cost to repair an existing home is $4,000. For the same investment as one new affordable housing unit, Rebuild Upstate can repair and rehabilitate 25 existing homes.

Repairing homes protects communities and offers sustainable housing at a lower cost than new construction.

It Takes More Than Lumber and Screws to

Support Low-Income Homeowners

When you sponsor a home or project, your contribution supports repairs for the homeowner by filling various funding gaps.

The details and funding needs of each home we serve are as unique as the homeowners inside. In fact, many of our funding partners only cover a portion of our actual costs for each home, which leaves Rebuild Upstate to raise money to fill in the gaps for a successful Build Day.

Your sponsorship can help fund:

Financial literacy training for your homeowner and customized referrals to other agencies to help meet the holistic needs of each homeowner

Individualized home assessments and project planning expenses

Necessary things like gas for delivering trailers and equipment to and from each project

Tool repair and replacement, so our tools continue to work safely

Safety materials such as gloves, goggles, and up to date first aid kits in each trailer to ensure a safe environment for the homeowner and volunteers working on the home

Materials for additional work identified as a need but not covered by another funding agency
