Planned Giving

You can play a vital role in the future of Camphill Village USA, Inc., when you join the J. Murray Logan Legacy Circle by making a legacy gift to the Camphill Village Copake Foundation, which is chartered to support the work of Camphill Village.

Your legacy gift will ensure that future generations of adults with developmental disabilities will have the opportunity to enjoy a full life by making Camphill Village their home. For many of our J. Murray Logan Legacy Circle donors, this manner of giving generates a profound sense of personal and emotional fulfillment.
If you have already included Camphill Village Copake Foundation in your estate plans, please let us know by calling Nancy O’Leary at (518) 329-7924, extension 136 or by email at so that we can welcome you as a member of the Legacy Circle
You can also download, print and complete this Estate Intention Form or, as many supporters do, choose a simple bequest or beneficiary designation.
We stand ready to assist you in making certain that your intentions will be carried out, but in all cases when contemplating a legacy gift, you should first consult with your attorney or financial advisor.

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is vitally important to maintaining Camphill Village’s wonderful quality of life, especially because no one is ever charged a fee to live in the Village. In addition, state contracts and federal entitlements cover only about 54% of our costs, so we rely heavily on the Annual Fund to help make up the difference, each year raising $1.8 million. Here are some of the things that your gift to the Annual Fund supports:

• Basic needs of the Village, like electricity, heat, food, clothing, and water
• Ongoing maintenance of our homes, work spaces, and the land
• Meaningful work opportunities, including our many craft shops; biodynamic farm; vegetable, seed, and healing plant gardens; bakery and café; co-op; and our 21 lifesharing homes
• Traditional and alternative therapies, including massage and physical therapy, music and art therapy, color light therapy, and therapeutic eurythmy
• Social and cultural activities, like our monthly “Dinner and Music” series, concerts, dramas, lectures, workshops, and festivals held in Fountain Hall, as well as regional performances, exhibits, and events
You can support the Annual Fund in many different ways
• Make a gift online, using our secure form below
• Attend a fundraising event, including the annual Joseph D. Freedman Bowl-a-Thon and the Anne Ratner Concert Series
• Send a check to us here at the Village
• Make a gift of appreciated stock
