Without the generous support of families and friends, Camphill Village could not possibly fulfill its mission of service.

State contracts and federal entitlements cover only about 48% of the cost to run the Village, so we rely heavily on private donations to help make up the difference.

Please explore the opportunities listed below, and if you have any questions, contact Nancy O’Leary, Director of Development, at (518) 329-7924, Ext. 136,or email; or Elizabeth Phillips, Assistant Director of Development, at (518) 329-7924, Ext. 134, or email

Your gift to the Annual Fund is the lifeblood of this community, helping to support the basic needs of the Village while also providing medical costs, many types of therapies, social and cultural actives, and much more.
