How are membership dues used?
Membership dues ($85/year or $8/month) are utilized to help HYP reach pre-planned yearly fundraising goals. In March of 2011, HYP was able to sponsor a Critical Home Repair project ($7,500) with a combination of HYP member dues and funds raised during special events like Mud Volleyball. Each year, HYP hopes to co-sponsor a the construction of a new home ($35,000) for Habitat Charlotte. Along with quarterly fundraising events, membership dues and our volunteers are the lifeblood of this organization. We thank you for your continued support!
