Here are some examples of what your gift to the Whidbey Institute makes possible:

SPONSORSHIP: Your gift will sponsor transformative programs so they can keep prices accessible for participants and help new programs get a start.  

STEWARDSHIP: Support our Place Team as they steward 106 acres of conservation forest, the Heartland and Legacy Forest, gardens, a labyrinth, over four miles of publicly accessible trails, gathering and lodging spaces, the Sanctuary, and numerous support buildings.

COMMUNITY: Your gift will create programs to welcome back our community and invite new friends for trail hikes, Storyhouse Stage concerts, our upcoming 50th Anniversary and more. 

“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
