Build a home, build our community

Partnering with the Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity, we’re strengthening the greater Iowa City and Tippie communities one Tippie Build at a time.


Interested in helping us (literally) lay the foundation for Tippie Build 11? Volunteer your time through the Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity website—just make you sure you check that you're signing up for Tippie Build!

And keep in mind that you don’t have to be an expert to help us out. We’ll teach you everything you need to know as you go.

Volunteer with Tippie Build


Tippie Build truly is a community effort. Countless helping hands contribute to our success. Just to give you an idea of where our money is going:

  • $10 buys a box of nails
  • $25 frames a window
  • $50 carpets a bedroom
  • $100 drywalls a kitchen
  • $500 builds a sidewalk

Get the idea? Your contribution goes straight to the resources that build homes.

A history of helping through Tippie Build

Our first Tippie Build was complete in 2007. It was the largest community service project in the history of Tippie and the start of a tradition. To date, Tippie students have raised more than $400,000 for Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity and provided most of the labor for (soon-to-be) ten Habitat homes.
