Kirkridge sits on a mountain that has been here for 300 million years. We walk and rest on lands where the native Lenape Indians thrived as a community. Since 1942, Kirkridge, the church on the ridge, has welcomed pilgrims seeking solace, strength, community and hope.
When you come here, you experience gifts of friendship, spiritual renewal, beauty and possibility that this special place offers to each of us. More than ever, we need to find places of solace, places where our hearts and souls can breathe.
Kirkridge needs your assistance so we can thrive as a place that allows you to take a deep breath in your life, promises to honor you and nurture your soul.
I take great hope as I look out my window that I am not alone … nor are you. Together, let’s cheer one another on through these times. Will you join me in giving generously to a place we all love?
We would be pleased to receive your gift of support.

Kirkridge Special Funds
Make a contribution to one of our Special Funds to honor individuals who have given the best of themselves to foster greater compassion in the world and to further Kirkridge’s retreat ministry. Contributions are held separately in these accounts. You may donate to The New Generation Fund honoring the work of Robert Raines and Cynthia Hirni. This fund is dedicated to bringing the next generation here to Kirkridge. You may donate to the Berrigan/McAlister Peace and Justice Fund honoring the work of Fr. Dan Berrigan and Phil Berrigan and Liz McAlister. You may donate to the McNeill/Mollenkott Fund honoring John McNeill and Virginia Mollenkott and their long standing justice work with the GLBTQ community at Kirkridge. Donations to the Light To Read Fund honor Dr. Charles Rice and his leadership in the program Light to Read By. Each of these special funds divides received gifts by thirds: one third to general operating, one third to scholarships and the final third to endowment supporting that particular area of work.
