Last year was the inaugural Give STL Day Event, and Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis (HFHSL) was proud to be one of 500 regional non-profits who participated in this very successful event. In 2014, the event raised over $3,000 for HFHSL and $1.1million total for worthy organizations throughout our community.
Give STL Day 2015 will take place on Tuesday, May 5th from 12:00am to 11:59pm. HFHSL joins with almost 800 other non-profits who are taking part in this event…so the competition will be fierce! We need your help to make this year’s event even more successful than last year’s.
What can you do to help?
HFHSL is responsible for raising over 95% of our own funding to build and rehab homes in St. Louis City and County. Your participation in Give STL Day goes a long way in helping us in our continuing mission to build a community where everyone has a decent place to live. Thank you in advance for your part in making Give STL Day a big success for HFHSL and the entire St. Louis philanthropic community!

A Midnight to Midnight Giving Event on May 5!
The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. Prize money will be made available throughout the day to amplify donations - woo-hoo! For twenty minutes starting at 6AM, 10AM, 12PM, 6PM, and 11PM, every donation will receive a partial match from a pool of $20,000.
The $20,000 will be split against all donations, up to $500, made during that time. This will allow each donation to receive some matching funds. Based on last year’s numbers, it would have equaled $.13 per dollar donated. For example, from 6:00-6:20am, if you donate $100, an extra $13.00 would be added to your gift to increase the support you have given Habitat STL! Once the day is over, we will find out what share of the $20,000 we will receive.
More than 750 nonprofits will be participating so we need your support!
Habitat STL's goal is simple: to raise more money than we did last year in order to increase our impact in the community. We intend to continue our work in partnering with families to break the cycle of poverty and build a financially secure future.
So join the movement and support us by donating to Habitat STL on May 5th! With your help (and competitive spirit!) we can raise more than last year's total of $3,019.
On May 5, go to givestlday.org and make a donation to Habitat STL. Your gift will help a family break the cycle of poverty and build a financially secure future!

It has taken me awhile to decide what I wanted to say to our supporters about what is happening in our community right now...and truth be told, I'm still not sure what to say. But I'll do my best, and hope my message gets across.

Tomika D., and her daughter, described the moment they received the news of their approval for homeownership with Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis as priceless. Although the wait was a roller coaster ride, it was all worth it. The good news was celebrated with hugs, screams, and a joyful dance!
Tomika’s six year old daughter, Desir`ee, loves to dance. She is a kindergartner at Dewell International Studies. She is a very smart little girl and loves to learn new things; and she appreciates the gift of knowledge (she teaches this to her baby dolls and teddy bears at home when she plays school!) Desir`ee also plays soccer and attends dance class.
Tomika is an alumni of UMSL (University of Missouri St. Louis) where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Although she is not using her degree in her current job, she has a strong desire to become a daycare owner because of her love for children. Tomika enjoys to shop and decorate, and now has an excuse to do both since she will become a homeowner.
Spending time together is enjoyed by taking in a movie, shopping at the mall, or visiting St. Louis Zoo. Tomika is thankful for Habitat for Humanity St Louis and the opportunity to make it possible for her to provide a home for her and her daughter. She is honored and an extremely happy HFHSL home buyer!
