Reaching Out to You from The Mountain at Year-End

 

Happy Holiday greetings to you from The Mountain!

We are reaching out to you to ask for your financial support again this year. We are making good progress toward our ambitious Annual Funding goal of $260,000, but we aren’t quite there. SO, each and every gift of any size brings us closer to achieving that goal possible. Please make your gift to the Annual Fund before the end of the year.

Here’s why your support matters: The Mountain has been enriching the lives of thousands of people for four decades–creating a strong and supportive community and caring for our precious natural setting. The Mountain will not thrive and grow in the future without your participation and support to sustain it along the way.

Here are some highlights of the past year’s accomplishments worth celebrating, made possible by our annual members and supporters:

  • We welcomed over 3,000 guests, including 260 Campers, 60 groups and congregation retreats, 6 Youth CONferences, and dozens of personal retreats.

 

  • We are grateful for our 300+ donors who gave over $400,000 for annual and special project funding in 2017.

 

  • Our Many Hands Peace Farm is flourishing, producing food and eggs for our guests and selling at local markets, hosting farm tours for all ages, creating a Food Forest, and offering a new Farm Camp week in 2019.

 

  • Many facility improvements have been made to enhance the guest experience and conserve on energy–new energy efficient windows, cabin and meeting room renovations, resurfacing Ring Road, door opening systems, railings, and more.

Hundreds of children and youth participate in our six weeks of MountainCamps and seven Youth CONference weekends each year. For our young guests, camp counselors, and youth advisors, these are experiences they treasure and will never forget.

Our Mountain Campership Fund provides camperships for 40 kids to experience MountainCamp who may not otherwise be able to participate. We believe every kid deserves a MountainCamp experience!

The Mountain is all about its mission, which is what your annual contributions go directly to support. Contributions to the annual fund make up about 25% of the operating budget, enabling us to keep our camp, program, and retreat costs reasonable for all our guests. The Mountain staff works hard throughout the year to make the most of every dollar received.

We cannot even imagine the world without The Mountain–the magical place where people of all ages share life-enriching experiences and make lasting memories. Your Annual Membership and gifts to The Mountain and Mountain Campership Fund make it all possible.

With appreciation and best wishes,

Ted Wisniewski, Executive Director  and Laurel Amabile, Development Director
