General Giving

Open Your Heart. Open A World of Possibility.

Please join us in making dreams come true for the twelve young adults with autism that call Erik’s Ranch & Retreats home where for as little as $5 per month, your gift will sustain meaningful employment and social opportunities for these deserving young adults. Concierge staff. Tour guides. Horse grooms. Facilities technicians. Bakers.

Because of your generosity, you are providing opportunities they have previously never experienced before Erik’s Ranch & Retreats. Opportunities the rest of us often take for granted: the chance for dignity, purpose, hope and more.

So please open your heart – and wallet – and feel good knowing you are providing the solution for as little as $5 a month. A solution where sheets, towels and lives are changed daily. Change with us in any amount today. Thank you!

Support Our Vehicle Fund

It’s a big world out there. Help us drive forward.

Donate today toward the purchase of a large SUV for Erik’s Ranch in Montana.

Erik’s Ranch in Montana is located in beautiful, yet rugged and expansive terrain. Each time a group travels to the Ranch for a work trip or a Montana Safari experience, we currently rent a large SUV to transport the group  and supplies across the many miles of rural Montana. Acquiring our own SUV will  save time and money that can be applied toward furthering the mission of  Erik’s Ranch & Retreats. That’s the power of your gift: you are helping us get on the road toward expanding the lives of the young adults with autism who call Erik’s Ranch & Retreats home.

So please join us in reaching our goal for vehicle ownership this year. Drive us forward in any amount today. Thank you!
