How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

We provide a place for individuals, families and groups interested in promoting peace and social justice to gather, retreat, learn, and be in nature. For progressive people who may feel 'excluded' from other institutions, facilities, or communities, World Fellowship can feel like coming home.

Each year since 2011 we have raised over $100,000 and continued to bring our buildings up to code. The Building and Grounds Committee of the Board  is working on a Campus Plan. We are implementing a plan to complete Life Safety and repair projects.

Funding Needs

World Fellowship is at a critical juncture: We need support to bring our facilities up to code so that we can continue to serve as a retreat and recreation center for the progressive Left. We are installing life safety mechanisms, improving meeting room facilities, and the Board is working to increase our funding base. We seek new collaborators and to deepen our relationships with existing donors.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
