Ensuring Wildacres’ Future

Fees paid by the nonprofit organizations using Wildacres’ conference center facilities only address a small portion of the Retreat’s annual operating expenses and do not cover the facility’s capital expenditures.
While the Blumenthal Foundation provides ongoing financial assistance to Wildacres to offset operating expenses, the Foundation cannot do this alone. A gift from the estate of Herman Blumenthal established the Wildacres Endowment Fund. That endowment combined with the help of Wildacres’ friends such as you can ensure the health and long-term success of Wildacres Retreat.

How You Can Help

Invest in Wildacres’ future and help keep the conference center facilities available at a nominal cost.
