Your Gifts to The Mountain’s Annual Fund Really Do Make a Difference

“No one has ever become poor by giving.” 
― Anne Frank

Did you know that typically, donations to The Mountain’s Annual Fund provide over 25% of the funds for our operating budget every year? Our program revenue simply doesn’t cover all the costs to keep The Mountain well-maintained, financially healthy, and fully staffed year-round.

Your gifts to the Annual Fund help keep our program costs affordable for all the retreat guests, congregations, community groups, and camper families who come to this special place. Thank you!

Thats you! Thank you for your support. Your love, care, and donations help The Mountain stay open to all, and enable The Mountain to meet our Mission and Vision. 

The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center has been a membership organization from its very beginnings in 1979. The Mountain’s membership program has evolved and changed over the years, and members have been the heart of The Mountain community throughout.

Becoming an Annual Member of The Mountain demonstrates your caring for this place and community and gives you a voice by your vote at the annual meeting in May. Membership is only $50.00 for an individual membership and $85.00 for a household/family membership and $20.00 for youth.


We appreciate your support!
