Snyder Architects was the Bronze Hero Sponsor for the 2013 Habitat for Humanity Women Build.   Former Habitat volunteer and Team Captain, Michelle Saitta, made a personal commitment to see the fundraising campaign through with the support of some determined ladies.  The Snyder Build Team exceeded their $20,000 goal  by  August 2013,  with a month to go.  They could not have done it without the help and support of the amazing gentlemen at the firm who participated  in the fundraising events while leading a few of their own.

“It’s amazing the power of women in the industry, ” said Saitta. “Working, volunteering and mentoring young girls to bring up a generation of confident women.”

The campaign was transformational, culturally within the studio and in terms of team and skill building. It was amazing seeing the campaign take on a life of its own.  For some, it was the first taste of fundraising while for others, it was a chance to break personal records.  With the support of our wonderful sponsors we were able to meet our goal through various events including the Jewelry Fundraiser and Golf Tournament.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity Toronto is a non-profit housing organization that works with low-income families in the city to break the cycle of poverty, by partnering with them to build simple, decent homes.  Habitat does more than just build homes. They build stronger, healthier families through home ownership. For instance, children of Habitat homeowners are strongly committed to education.  Of all the children living in Habitat homes in Toronto, over 93% are still pursuing an education. The Women Build is an eleven day event in September bringing together 1,000 women to help build 6 homes for families living in need.
