Several of our programs throughout the year would not be possible without the generous sponsorships from individuals and organizations.

Our Fix-It School offers 60+ free classes a year covering a wide range of topics. Our Rookie Renovators series covers basic repairs in all areas of the home. Money Matters classes help people improve their financial knowledge. We also host a series of Women-Only classes that range from general home maintenance to completing special projects. Fix-It School sponsors can help by sponsoring a single class, a series of classes, or designating funds to provide class materials that are not donated.

Every spring we host our Resourceful Homeowner Celebration at the Frederik Meijer Gardens. This is a great evening to help us celebrate the work we've done throughout the year while recognizing several Kent County homeowners who have done incredible work on their own homes. Sponsors help us make this a free event to celebrate an evening with friends and clients alike. 

We also host an annual Donor Appreciation Party at our building. This is our chance to invite everybody who supports our work throughout the year to see what is new in the facility and enjoy an evening of great local food and drink.

If you or your company are interested in learning more about our sponsorship opportunities, email Chris Romero, Resource Development Manager.
