Support Rock Point
Due to emergency COVID-19 measures, almost all events at Rock Point Center have been cancelled through June 2020. We have re-purposed the Center to serve as an emergency housing location for residential programs of The Howard Center, a nonprofit that provides support to individuals and families around mental health, substance abuse, and developmental disabilities. We are honored to provide this support to our community, but are still suffering significant loss in our income. We hope that you will consider a donation so that we can continue to keep our facilities and trails maintained and support our dedicated staff during this challenging time.
Thank you for your interest in supporting Rock Point Commons. It takes a village to maintain and sustain this 130 acre sanctuary on the shores of Lake Champlain, and we appreciate your desire to be a part of that work.
Ways to Give...
DONATE TO THE GENERAL FUND
Rock Point Commons is the overarching name for the land and all of the organizations that operate here. A donation to the general fund allows us to continue to build a strong financial base for all of our programs. Your donation might be used to maintain our trails, upgrade our conference center, or support our summer camp. We also use our general fund to offset the costs of conference center rentals for nonprofits and community organizations who otherwise might not be able to afford to come here. Through our donation portal, you can also select the "monthly" option to make an ongoing commitment to Rock Point, spread over time.
MAKE A BEQUEST
If Rock Point holds a special place in your heart, we humbly suggest that you consider naming us in your will or estate documents. Making a bequest to Rock Point of any size helps to ensure that your legacy is connected to our legacy. If you would like to make a larger bequest to be connected to a long-term endowment or dedicated function at Rock Point, please contact Paul Habersang, our Executive Director, to discuss.
SEND A CHILD TO ROCK POINT CAMP
Make a lasting impact on a child's life! The need is great and ever growing. Our scholarship fund provides financial assistance to over 50% of our camp families who would otherwise not be able to experience a week at camp. At Rock Point Camp, campers of all ages are invited to belong to a caring, cooperative community, be a friend and make new friends; explore the wilds of 130 acres on the shores of Lake Champlain; grow in confidence, independence and interdependence; try new activities and learn new skills; and experience the sacredness of creation where outdoor adventure meets spiritual exploration. Please consider helping a child go to camp by contributing to the Angel Scholarship Fund.
Whether you want to help maintain trails, do a one-time project or regular upkeep at the conference center, or donate your professional skills to our organization, we would love to have you make a donation of your time and talents to Rock Point Commons. Read more about volunteer opportunities here.
Occasionally, Rock Point needs an item for our camp, conference center, or property that isn't in our budget. If you can help by donating a like-new item or securing a donation from a local company, we would love to hear from you.
