The Shaker Society Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is the easiest way to support Shaker Village! As a donor, your contribution provides funds that allow individuals and families to have unique and powerful experiences here at Shaker Village.
Shaker Village is a non-profit organization, and we work hard to maximize the impact of your donation. Each year, donors like you inspire generations and help further our mission.
- Over 2,000 children and their families meet the newest additions to The Farm's family during Brunch with the Babies.
- Over 100 children participate in Explorer Summer Camp.
- Up to 4,000 children participate in our Easter Egg Hunts and Trick-or-Treat events.
- More than 20,000 people enjoy our hiking trails, Dixie Belle riverboat rides and hay rides.
- Over 55,000 guests participate in a guided tour or daily program.
These life-changing discoveries and adventures would not be possible without your philanthropic support. Gifts of all sizes are welcome and are tax-deductible to the extent the law allows.
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT! The Shaker Village Board of Trustees has voted to match each new or increased donation dollar for dollar up to $350,000 in 2019. For example, if you are a new donor and make a $250 gift to the Annual Fund, the Board will match that $250, and the total impact will be $500 to the Annual Fund! If you were a $250 donor last year and increased that amount to $500, the Board will match that additional $250, and the total impact will be $750 to the Annual Fund!
Please consider making a donation to the Annual Fund or increasing your gift from last year. A new or increased gift of any size is appreciated. You will DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT, and your investment will enrich the lives of all who visit this powerful place!
All gifts are tax-deductible to the extent the law allows. Federal ID #61-0592561
