Your donations are vital to our mission at the Center at Mariandale. We make every effort to keep our costs low, to make the benefits of retreats and contemplation available to as many as possible.

For decades, the Center at Mariandale has opened its doors to retreatants seeking spiritual and personal growth, as well as meeting and retreat space for nonprofit organizations and schools.

But the center is much more than thatIn the summer, our pool and picnic grounds host groups of local and inner city children from the five boroughs of New York. Groups also use our retreat facilities at little or no cost: veterans, mobility challenged, senior citizens, victims of domestic violence, families of the incarcerated, peace activists, relatives staying overnight while family are in nearby hospitals, and more. All of these groups are either partially or fully subsidized by Mariandale. 

Please make a safe, secure, online donation to Mariandale to help us keep our doors open.

The center needs your help to continue our outreach work and keep our center open.

Your tax-deductible contributions to the general fund can be made on our online donation page.

Give to the Mary Mitchell Memorial Fund

Mary Mitchell, OP, was the visionary behind the creation of The Mariandale Center. She remained at the heart of Mariandale until her death in 1995. She had a particular concern for abuse victims and for women. The fund has been established to provide assistance for women who are unable to afford Mariandale retreats and services.

Who is eligible to receive scholarships from the fund? Among other criteria, Mary Mitchell funds usually go to women in need of spiritual guidance, women who are victims of abuse, and women who are economically disadvantaged. We welcome additional contributions to the Mary Mitchell Memorial Fund

The frequency for receiving funds for any one person is limited to one time per year for programs and retreats. The amount available for each person will depend upon the individual situation.
