Support the Residents of Camphill Village Copake

Why Your Donation Matters

Your charitable gifts are the lifeblood of this community, helping to support the basic needs of the Village while also providing for medical costs, therapies, activities, and much more. State contracts and federal entitlements cover less than 50% of the cost to run Camphill Village, so we rely heavily on private donations to help make up the difference. Your gifts support our community in many ways, including:

Our biodynamic farms and gardens, which provide meaningful activities and nutritious meals for our community

Medical and dental expenses not covered by insurance or trusts, as well as different therapies that contribute to our wellbeing

A host of cultural performances and other fulfilling experiences enjoyed by our community members
