$236k Raised at 2017 Gala
We’re so grateful to the many community members and new friends who joined us for the Down this Winding Road Gala fundraising experience on October 14. We had an incredible time celebrating in community and honoring Nancy Nordhoff for her exemplary leadership . . . and together, we raised $236,685 in support of our shared work as a home for transformative learning, inquiry, and action. This brings us significantly closer to our Whidbey Institute 2020 Phase 1 goal of $1.35 million to complete the Heartland lodging expansion already underway, and contributes sustaining momentum for our full four-year, $4.5 million capacity-building campaign.
