Support Us

Your donations are vital to our mission at the Center at Mariandale. We make every effort to keep our costs low, to make the retreat experience 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.

The Center at Mariandale strives to keep our fees low in order to ensure our retreats and programs are available to all. It’s important to know that program fees do not cover the full cost of food, accommodations, and meeting expenses. We rely on our friends and supporters to help subsidize these expenses.

Your generosity ensures that young adults, students, and people with low incomes can experience the rest and healing our programs provide. Donations also help underwrite fees for veterans, people who are homeless or disabled, faith-based groups, and youth camps that use our pool and picnic grounds during the hot summer days.

You can make a safe, secure, online donation to Mariandale or mail your gift to The Center at Mariandale, 299 North Highland Avenue, Ossining, NY 10562. The Center at Mariandale is a sponsored ministry of the Dominican Sisters of Hope, a 501c3 tax-exempt organization.

We are so grateful for your support and help! Thank you for partnering with us in this ministry.

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
