Whidbey Institute Winter Campaign
Total Raised as of December 1: $170,000 | Total Promised: $30,000
Total Remaining: $150,000
Thanks to three early generous donors for giving $150,000 of the total raised to date.
We need places like the Whidbey Institute to meet the challenges in our world that are calling us to heal and transform ourselves and our world. People are drawn to the Whidbey Institute to slow down, nourish themselves, and reflect on what is theirs to do in this time of great need. In this post-pandemic world, they are hungry to connect and collaborate with their community and gain capacities to better serve. Whether they are participants in transformative programs, non-profit teams strategizing for a day, or visitors hiking the trails, meditating in the Sanctuary, or walking in the gardens, people come here to be changed by this place so that they can go back into their lives to create our future.
As we approach the end of a third (and hopefully final) COVID-19 impacted year and without the government support that was offered last year, we find ourselves in continued need of your support for this place we all love. While we saw more programs returning or joining us for the first time in 2022, groups were smaller and, like most organizations, we saw our costs increase. Next year, we anticipate returning to pre-Covid levels of earned income but our 2022 income is still only 60% of our optimal level.
Will you support us today to continue the legacy of the Whidbey Institute as a place for those called by the responsibility and transformative potential of these times?
Please give generously to help us meet our 2022-2023 Winter Campaign goal. You may give on-line or mail us a check at PO Box 57, Clinton, WA 98236. Please be in touch if you want to give a gift of stock or through your donor advised funds.
Thank you for your continued care and support!
