Annual Giving Campaign

Every year we conduct an Annual Giving Campaign to help close the gap between our program fees and the actual cost of the high quality of services provided by Raphael Village.

This year our goal is $50,000. Please read the letter below from our Executive Director. We also invite you to read about what we have been able to achieve with your support over the past year in our annual report: La Lumière.

A Letter from Our Executive Director

Jacqueline CaseDear Friend of Raphael Village,

Each year the Board of Directors sets a goal for our Annual Giving Fund. For the 2021–22 fiscal year, our goal is $50,000! Your donation will support all programming at Raphael Village including Raphael Academy’s Scholarship Fund and the cost of enrichment programming such as Gardening, Handwork, and Movement (including supplies and instructional staff).

Additionally, funds will support the purchase of:

  • A Smart Board for the Guild’s Volunteer Internship Training Program 
  • Guild Artist Training and Fiber Studio supplies (ceramic supplies, paint drying rack, canvases, yarn, and candle-making supplies)
  • Bakery + Market supplies (display case for baked goods)
  • Yoga supplies
  • The Unique Curriculum


We are grateful to all of you who have made recurring donations over many years; our success would not have been possible without you.

Thank you for your consideration again this year. We appreciate YOU!

With gratitude,

Jacqueline Case
