Celebrate and Support the Whidbey Institute Today!

We extend our deepest gratitude for your unwavering commitment to the Whidbey Institute. Your invaluable contributions have played a vital role in sustaining essential programs, nurturing our cherished environment, and strengthening our team.

Throughout this year, new groups have found a haven at the Whidbey Institute, while longstanding program partners continue to return. Offerings in leadership, environment, youth empowerment, personal transformation, social and racial justice, as well as arts and healing have transformed lives and communities.

Your donation has a significant impact in supporting programs, place and people at the Whidbey Institute. These times call upon us to embrace wild ideas, to seek profound and enduring changes within ourselves, our relationships, and our institutions.


Thank you for your continued care and support!

“Philanthropy is a daily practice, encouraging us to appreciate others, use our whole selves to impact our communities, and clearly see the many ways in which we’re able to strengthen our generous hearts, beginning with ourselves.” —Kristen Corning Bedford

Become a Monthly Donor

When you give monthly, you help steward this land, care for these spaces, and nurture this community.

A monthly gift of any amount is one of the most significant ways you can care for the land, work, and mission of the Whidbey Institute.

“There’s something about getting cash flow every week, deposits every week, that makes doing the work easier.”

Kent Wales, on why he donates monthly
