JOIN US ON OUR JOURNEY TO PRESERVE & PROTECT 
THE JOSHUA TREE RETREAT CENTER / INSTITUTE OF MENTALPHYSICS

YEAR-END GIVING CAMPAIGN

On November 18th we launched our 2021 Year-End Campaign. After being closed for 18-months due to the pandemic, Joshua Tree Retreat Center (JTRC) reopened its’ doors with renewed focus to:

* Provide a more accessible JTRC campus to the local community

* Preserve and protect JTRC for future generations

Our goal for this campaign is to raise $100,000 by December 31st to support our community programs and operations. 

Inspired by you, the Joshua Tree Retreat Center has taken the following steps to make the campus more accessible to our local community:

  • Established the Joshua Tree Folk School to host local partner organizations at no cost, while fostering community-based arts & education programs
  • Opened the Food for Thought Café to the public for the 1st time in the Center’s history to offer a welcoming space for community members
  • Relaunched affordable wellness classes starting at just $5 per class to provide equitable wellness opportunities for community members regardless of financial situation

A VIEW TOWARDS THE FUTURE:
PRESERVING & PROTECTING JTRC FOR OUR COMMUNITY & FUTURE GENERATIONS

To preserve and protect the Joshua Tree Retreat Center for future generations, an application to the National Register of Historic Places is in process. Architectural Historian Daniel Paul has been retained by the board of the Joshua Tree Retreat Center to draft the 100-page historical designation application. Registration as a historic landmark will protect the historic campus designed by Lloyd Wright for future generations and will give JTRC access to renovation and restoration grants into the future.
