A Village Renewed

Support Holden Village

Throughout our history, Holden Village has depended on both the hard work of volunteers and the generous financial support of thousands of individuals who are passionate about our mission, vision, and values.

Because it is expensive to operate a remote mountain Village, guest fees cover only 60% of the cost of a visit. When you donate to Holden Village, your gift makes up the difference and sustains this unique place in the wilderness. Your support helps us expand welcome to those who have yet to visit.

Your gift helps people build and practice community both within the Village and in the greater world. Thank you!
