HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF ST. CHARLES COUNTY
The mission of Habitat St. Charles is Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
The Habitat model is very unique, a true hand up not hand out.
Partner families are selected through a rigorous process, once selected the hard work begins. Sweat equity and education are part of the agreement, actually building homes while taking on financial literacy. Our partner families are hard working individuals that maybe don't make enough money to buy a home on the open market in St. Charles County.
Upon completion of the partnership, the families close on their home just like everyone else. They are required to pay a monthly mortgage, just like everyone else. They are in fact, just like everyone else.
Habitat is able to build houses that are affordable by using volunteer labor, fundraising and seeking in-kind donations. Community support is the reason we are able to take on the challenge of affordable housing.
All proceeds from the Resolution Run go directly to supporting Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
------ x ------
What is Charity Footprints?
Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.
Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.
What is the campaign registration fee?
Campaign registration fee is the amount that you'll need to pay to enroll in this virtual race. This fee (less transaction charges) will go to the non-profit running this campaign as a donation.
The registration fee along with the funds raised through your individual fundraising page will enable the non-profit to fund various programs and pursue their organization's mission.
How can I create my fundraising page?
Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.
While registering for the campaign, select the team you'd like to join or create a new team and invite others to #GetFitGiveBack with you. If you want to join a team (or create your team) after registration, login to the campaign site and you would find a link to edit "My Team" in the menu under your profile in the header.
I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?
All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.
Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?
The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.
That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.
Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.
Who can I contact if I need help?
You can contact us any time if you need help. We love hearing from our users so please don't hesitate to write to us about issues, suggestions, or to just say hi. You can also contact the non-profit administrator directly if you would like.
How do I change or switch my team?
