Program Overview

Earthaven Ecovillage’s patron 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 subscription, change the donation level, or switch to manual renewal from the My Account button on the School of Integrated Living website. The subscription automatically renews by default. Contact us if you need help updating your subscription preferences.

Recognizing your gift within our Earthaven community enables connection among the Earthaven extended community. For example, we would like to recognize new patrons and anniversaries in our Village Voices patron newsletter and let Earthaven residents know of your support when you visit Earthaven. If you prefer to remain anonymous, that’s OK too. Just let us know your preference.

What Does My Donation Support?

Your tax-deductible donation through the Earthaven patron program goes directly to keeping our ecovillage running smoothly and developing Earthaven as a living laboratory for a healthy and meaningful future.

As patron 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

Who decides?

By the end of 2022, the patron program will start allocating donations. The Earthaven Council, the Culture’s Edge board, and Patrons will all have a voice in this allocation.

Like most things at Earthaven, this allocation process will be an evolving experiment in partnership culture and participatory decision making. We welcome you and appreciate your support in this grand experiment.

Village Voices

Patrons 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 Tuesday 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 of patrons within the Earthaven community

Managing Your Subscription

The program is based on monthly or annual subscriptions.

You can manage your subscription from our 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 available to help you manage your subscription if needed.

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

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

Your subscription is a donation to our educational nonprofit, Culture’s Edge. Each January you will receive a receipt for your donation, which may be useful for your taxes.

Thank You!
