With the goal of strengthening our Iowa City community and the community within the Tippie College of Business, students, staff, and faculty are working to raise $50,000 and build a home for a local family in need of safe and affordable housing. We will accomplish this through a partnership with the Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity, an organization dedicated to building affordable and safe homes for low-income working families.
Through our act of giving someone else a hand-up, we hope to show how much we appreciate the countless hands-up others have given us.
Our first Tippie Build was completed during the 2006-2007 academic year. It was the largest community service project in history of the College of Business and the start of a tradition. To date, Tippie students have raised more than $250,000 for Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity and provided most of the volunteer labor to build five Habitat homes.
Build a home…build our community…
