INVEST IN OUR FUTURE

2021 has been a potent year, and the pandemic underscored the importance of connecting with the land and each other during this time. It is with gratitude, humility, and celebration that we ask for your financial support.

We believe in a world that embraces nature-based rites of passage as essential to human health and societal wellbeing. Initiatory practices are integral to community welfare, as they root us in right relationship with each other, with the Earth, and with all Beings. One could argue that we need this now more than ever.

Although we offered as many programs as we could, we lost significant income in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid-19. A hard look at finances has enabled us to recognize the need for tuition increases and stronger fundraising.  Our dream is that all who wish to participate are able. We humbly ask for you to make a donation to the School in order to help us meet the needs of the times ahead.

GENERAL FUND

Your donation to this fund will assist the day to day operations of the School, helping the central fire of our administration stay grounded and functional.

OUR LEGACY

Line-Full

Thanks to our generous donors and scholarship program, it has been possible for applicants to participate in all of our programs, no matter the financial challenge.

The numbers below are collected since the School of Lost Borders was established as a non-profit in 2008. However, the School has supported many, many more, since its inception in 1981.

Please help us continue our legacy of accessibility and decades of meaningful rites of passage.
