Yurt Fundraiser

Help Us Build New Yurts, And Maybe Even Name One! 

Glamour camping has quickly become one of the hottest trends in the travel industry, and our Montana guest ranch is perfect for this luxury-style adventure getaway. Our goal is to begin offering a new glamping experience this May by adding two new yurts to our property, but we need YOUR help raising $10,000 to make it happen!  

The first $1,000 in donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by our organization’s founders, so your gift today could go twice as far. And, if you make a gift of $250 or more at any time, your name will be entered into a drawing and the winner will get to name one of the yurts! 

It has been a challenging year for our organization, and we are so grateful for the support of kind and caring people like you who have helped keep our mission afloat. But we are not out of the woods yet. The pandemic continues to cause tremendous financial strain on our Minnesota Retreat. Our Montana Ranch, however, is busier than ever thanks to its unqiue offering of seclusion and privacy. It’s critical that we expand our ranch to meet this growing demand. That is why we need your help. 

Your support not only builds these fabulous new accommodations, it helps build life skills and self-esteem for our young adults on the autism spectrum. With more guests at our ranch, there are more jobs and opportunities for our members to share their knowledge, skills and passions. By thriving as adventure tour guides, equine assistants and more, they gain confidence to succeed in new endeavors away from the ranch as well. And most importantly, they find the sense of purpose and fulfillment every person deserves. You truly have the power to change lives by making a gift today.

Used for thousands of years by nomadic tribes in Central Asia, a yurt is a circular tent made out of wool felt with a collapsible wood frame structure. Our plan is for each yurt to accommodate up to four guests and will include one queen size bed, a pullout sofa, a shower, a small dining table and chairs and an outdoor seating area. The yurts will be insulated and heated, and we will offer this opportunity year-round. Our goal is to create a unique experience for guests which provides the adventure, rustic feel and scenery of camping, with the comfort of a luxury accommodation.
