Sponsor a Stud

Join us as we kick-off a new Habitat tradition in Ogle County and make a difference in the lives of our next partner family by creating a message of hope, encouragement, or inspiration on their new home. For a donation of $200, you can sponsor a stud (2x6 piece of wood) that will help build a Habitat home. Constructing a Habitat home takes over 300 studs, so every donation counts!



  • Open to Everyone (individuals, groups, organizations, and schools)

  • Tax Deductible

  • Decorate However You Like

    • Draw a picture

    • Showcase your company logo

    • Write a heartfelt message to the family

  • Choose the number of studs to sponsor (1 for $200, 3 for $500, 6 for $1,000) 

  • You will be invited to our “Stud-Finder” preview where you can see where your stud(s) ended up in the framework of the home. 

Studs will be available on designated days at locations throughout Ogle County 


  • Dates and locations for pick-up and drop off will be posted on social media and updated on the website. 

  • For larger orders, we can arrange pick-up or delivery for your convenience.

  • Your sponsorship will help a local family build their forever home, and you'll get to leave your joyful mark!
