The Montreat Fund

Our Top Annual Giving Priority

The Montreat Fund sustains the mission and ministry of the conference center through collective, unrestricted, annual support. Generous gifts ensure that Montreat remains a place to grow in faith, rest with family and friends, and connect with wilderness for many years to come. Donors to the Montreat Fund make the Montreat experience possible!

Gifts to the Montreat Fund represented 13% of the conference center's operating budget in the 2022-2023 Fiscal Year and have a direct bearing on our ability to:

  • Feature insightful speakers for conferences and talented preachers for worship
  • Maintain lodges and facilities and provide a safe and welcoming environment for guests
  • Offer recreational activities like boating, hiking, Clubs, crafts and pottery, and barn dances

The conference center relies on widespread support from individuals, churches, businesses, and foundations to reach our Montreat Fund goal each year. See below for our different giving recognition levels and the benefits of being a Montreat Fund Patron!

Montreat's fiscal year runs from May 1 through April 30.
