Ensuring Wildacres’ Future
Fees paid by the nonprofit organizations using Wildacres’ conference center facilities address only 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 like 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.

Wishlist Items and Services
On occasion, Wildacres supporters have donated supplies to the retreat such as equipment, appliances, tools, or other items from our supply wishlist.
If you wish to gift an item to Wildacres, our wishlist is located here, along with links to online ordering options. We anticipate the list will grow and change as future needs are identified.

We will be sharing information on capital projects as they are identified by the staff and our board in the coming months. Groups and individuals will be invited to contribute to those projects.
