Gwinwood Donation Challenge

Hello Gwinwood Supporters!

We hope that you are well and enjoying this warm summer.

The Gwinwood grounds are blooming with berries and our four new fawns (two sets of twins!) are out and about showing off.   Hicks Lake has been a perfect temperature for swimming, canoeing and fishing this season and our Disciples Campers took advantage of the water during the heat wave.

We had begun to slowly open after our year of shut-down, and had several groups coming in August and September.  However, COVID had a different idea, and those groups had to cancel due to safety and spreading issues.  Gwinwood is in dire need because of these cancellations.

The good news is that we have an opportunity to keep this hidden treasure afloat during these uncertain days. We have an anonymous donor willing to match funds up to $10,000.00.

The Trustees and staff are stepping out in faith that Gwinwood is still a needed sacred space for Western Washington and beyond in our pandemic weary world.

Please consider a special donation and double your impact through the matching challenge provided by our anonymous donor.
