At Earthaven Ecovillage,  we live and work every day in pursuit of a truly alternative culture, where we strive to provide for our basic needs while centering the health of the Earth and our community. We are dedicated to caring for people and the Earth by learning, living, and demonstrating a holistic, sustainable culture.

As we continue building this living laboratory and sharing what we learn, we are inspired and humbled by your confidence in our work. We are grateful for your support.

From: $5.00 / month

The Friends of Earthaven Ecovillage program provides a way for you to contribute to Earthaven’s work in the world as part of our extended community.

Whether you are connected to Earthaven as a friend, family, or former member, resident, or student, or found us in your search for inspiration, ideas, and solutions, we welcome your support and energy.

You can always cancel your recurring donation, change your donation level, or switch to renew manually from the My Account button on the School of Integrated Living website. The recurring donations automatically renew by default. Please contact us if you need help updating your donation preferences.



What Does My Donation Support?

Your tax-deductible donation goes directly to keeping Earthaven Ecovillage running smoothly and developing Earthaven as a living laboratory for a healthy and meaningful future.

As donations flow into the community, we plan to expand programs and projects for:

  • Children and elders
  • Agroforestry and regenerative agriculture
  • Cultural evolution
  • Village Center development, including upgrading the renewable power system and building additional visitor facilities
  • New and growing village businesses

Village Voices

Friends of Earthaven receive Village Voices, an exclusive newsletter of the goings on in the village. Inspired by a small-town newspaper, Village Voices provides a connection to ongoing village life that isn’t offered in Earthaven’s promotional or educational offerings.

Village Voices is published the first Thursday of the month. (If you don’t want to receive the Village Voices, you can unsubscribe.)

Village Voices includes:

  • Articles, news, and updates from Earthaven villagers
  • Advance notice of SOIL programs, podcast releases, and other offerings
  • Reports of projects and programs funded by our patrons
  • Recognition within the Earthaven community

Managing Your Donation

The program is based on recurring monthly or annual donations.

You can manage your donations from the School of Integrated Living website — increasing or decreasing the amount of donation and canceling when you no longer want to continue. If you are leery of recurring subscriptions, you can configure your account for manual renewal. Just visit the subscription management area via the My Account button on any page on the website. We are happy to help you manage your subscription if needed.

Monthly Donation Levels: $5 ~ $10 ~ $25 ~ $50 ~ $100

Annual Donation Levels: $50 ~ $100 ~ $250 ~ $500 ~ $1,000
