With the sudden devastation of Mayacamas Ranch by the fires, involving the great loss of property and jobs of ranch staff members, I’m establishing this GoFundMe campaign to jump start a recovery effort – with the goal of raising $108K.

Proceeds will be used to help staff in need as well as efforts to begin the healing and rebuilding process. We know that this GoFundMe goal is insufficient for fulfilling these priorities, but will go a long way towards bringing security to the 12 staff, several dozen retreat leaders, and to commence recovery efforts on the land.

100% of the proceeds from this GoFundMe will go to helping ranch staff  to recover their livelhoods and to retreat leaders who lost the venue where their communities convene. 

For me, Mayacamas Ranch has been a sanctuary and place for renewal and connection to nature, land, and an incredible array of inspirational leaders and purposeful communities.  It is my deep belief that something beautiful will emerge from this devastation.  I appeal to  those of you who have appreciated this place in your own way to help write the next chapter for this truly unique and sacred setting.

We’ve reached 15% of our goal. Distribution of funds will begin next week using a simple formula - 66% will be distributed to employees of the ranch, according to length of service and need. 33% will be reserved for retreat leaders impacted by the fires.

As each additional 15% of goal is achieved, this distribution formula will be reviewed and revised as appropriate to best meet the needs of the workers and community affiliated with this campaign. All reasonable recommendations made by funders for changes to the distribution model will be considered. To the extent manageable, we want this to be an open and transparent process.

Thank you for your support.
