Support Bearnstow

As a small non-profit organization, Bearnstow relies heavily on contributions from individual donors to help us keep our programs affordable, and to preserve our historic facilities and fragile grounds.

Bearnstow is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation; all contributions are tax de­ductible.

Some of Bearnstow’s prioritized areas of need:

  • Historic Preservation and four year restoration Project
  • Day Camp Scholarship Fund
  • Sponsor a Young Artist Resident
  • Scholarships for artists to attend workshops or retreat weeks
  • Media and Electronics to create and maintain an archive of camp activities
  • General operating support
  • Donate in Ruth Grauert’s memory

We are grateful for your donations of any amount, and we thank you for your generous support!
