Donate Now

Thank you for supporting Ragdale! Your contributions are vital to furthering Ragdale's mission of supporting artists in a retreat setting and making the arts more accessible to the public. There are many ways you can invest in Ragdale.

Giving Opportunities

Residency Fund
The Residency Fund will support 18-25-day residencies for 130 groundbreaking artists and writers in 2013. All funds raised offset the cost of creative residencies with a sliding scale of support, based on need. Your contributions help an artist meet their residency-related expenses such as travel, materials, residency fees, promotion of new work, access to a regional expert, and/or another financial barrier to success. With your contribution, no resident at Ragdale pays more than $35/day--and many will join us for less.

Fellowship Fund
With a gift of $7,500, Ragdale can establish one, 25-day cross-cultural fellowship, complete with an honorarium for the artist’s materials and travel. By underwriting one or more fellowships, you and your family will enjoy the opportunity to conduct a studio visit with your fellow and name their award in honor of the individual or business of your choosing.

Capital Fund
Do you love architecture or the Arts and Crafts movement? Perhaps historic gardens are your thing? Support Ragdale's buildings and grounds in a very tangible and visible way by contributing to capital projects. Your gift provides vital funding for both the endowment and capital needs such as restoration of the Ragdale House and renovation of the historic landscape.

Your gift of stock is gratefully accepted and appreciated.
