2022 Giving Gala


Habitat for Humanity of Schenectady County presents

the 6th Annual Giving Gala

A Spectacular Non-Event Event just for You!

We’d like you to stay in and get cozy in the comfort of your own home and help us build safe, affordable homes for qualified, first-time homebuyers.

The need for safe, affordable housing continues to grow at an alarming rate. We have multiple houses under construction, but costs have skyrocketed making it more difficult to purchase materials. Schenectady Habitat is committed to continue building and helping working-class families across our community. With your support, we will meet our goals.

Plus this year your gift can make an even bigger impact because Trustco Bank has generously agreed to match the first $5,000 in donations!

Please give your heart felt donation before December 31, 2022.


Your generosity helps local families and supports Schenectady Habitat’s current and future building projects.

Together we build stability, strength and self-reliance through shelter.



Volunteers were hard at work in Schenectady on Wednesday. Habitat for Humanity held its annual “Women Build Week.”

NewsChannel 13 photojournalist Alex Clarey put together this piece, showing you some of what they do.
