You Give, We Give 2021

March 31, 2021

Post Campaign Update:

The total of donations made under Hobin Architecture’s You Give, We Give 2021 was around $117,000 including our matched contribution. However, the total funds raised is estimated at over $250,000 when you consider the indirect reaction to our initiative. Not bad when you figure we set out to raise $40,000!

Together, we can make a difference.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been historically challenging to our community’s most vital humanitarian and social support organizations. Shelters are struggling to provide services to those most in need, and children’s clubs are finding it difficult to keep their doors open while providing safety. Communities are challenged to remain united, and mental health is suffering across the board. But together, we can make a difference if we act fast.

We may strive to create beautiful buildings and vibrant places, but we realize that for many in our Community, life is fragile and challenging. We recognize our obligation to the broader concept of Community.


Please give generously and we will do the same.

During the months of April through June 2021, Hobin Architecture pledges to match new donations to four vital organizations in our community, up to a total of $10,000 per beneficiary.

Here’s how it works. Visit the links below to make your donation before June 30. Tell them you were referred by Hobin Architecture. Then, during the month of July, Hobin Architecture will make an equivalent donation (up to $10,000) to each charity.

This program is intended to stimulate new support for these organizations in need. Therefore, we are limiting the matching program to new donors. If you have donated before, please continue to do so—your financial support means the world to these organizations.
