Does it cost anything?
This event is free! All you have to do to register is visit the event page and enter your email address. Guests are encouraged to make a generous donation to support your neighbors striving toward homeownership.
Who is this for?
Everyone is welcome to virtually attend the luncheon! Homeownership remains out of reach for far too many families in our community. We have a lot of work to do, and we need everyone’s support to build a community where every family has the opportunity to thrive.
What is an Event Ambassador?
Event Ambassadors are the backbone of the Hope Builders Luncheon! They invite friends and family to attend the event and encourage them to give generously. When you sign up to be an Event Ambassador, you'll receive our Ambassador toolkit with everything you'll need, including instructions for creating and sharing your very own fundraising page.

Who will be speaking?
This year, we're so excited to have two phenomenal women in conversation about the importance of housing for health and racial equity. Dr. Taj Mustapha is Chief Equity Strategy Officer at M Health Fairview. Stella Whitney-West is CEO of NorthPoint Health & Wellness Center. Their discussion will be moderated by Michelle Robinson, Senior VP of Business Development at Vitalant and a board member at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.
You'll also hear from Twin Cities Habitat Board Chair Nikki Sorum, who will share how your gifts will support your neighbors.
What do my gifts support?
When you donate at the Luncheon, you protect homeowners, you expand homeownership opportunities, and you create an impact that multiplies for generations. Home prices are skyrocketing just as pandemic-related assistance programs are winding down, so now is a critical time to support your neighbors through Habitat.
I can’t tune in – how can I give now and watch later?
