Thank you to all who attended and supported this special spring benefit!
Save the date! We'll gather again at Alnoba
on Saturday, April 27, 2019.
On this beautiful evening we gathered together in support of raising youth strong by nature. Thanks to your generosity, we can say yes to the children and families who request scholarship support to attend Merrohawke programs. By your giving, you increased access and opportunities for more youth to increase their empathy, resilience, grit and deep connection to the earth.
It was our pleasure to honor to Jacalyn Bennett with this year's Strong By Nature award, and Dakota Pilicy with the youth Strong by Nature Award. We also shined a spotlight on a lesser known Merrohawke program, provided in partnership with Newburyport High School's Setting Sail Postgraduate program.
Dakota Pilicy, age 16, then delivered a Fund-the-Future story.

If you were not able to attend but would like to contribute, we invite your generous support here.

Your philanthropic support makes it possible for Merrohawke to serve 2,200 youth annually from families living within a 50-mile radius of Newburyport, Mass. It is our vision that every child will grow into an adult able and committed to better our world, and with this intention in our hearts and minds, we are committed to guiding learning in nature that inspires empathy, resilience, grit and a deep connection to the earth.
