A retreat center for women in the arts, located in Shelton, Washington
- Hypatia-in-the-Woods is a 501(c)(3) organization. We are a self-sustaining organization supported by your donations, donations that provide scholarships for residents who are unable to pay the modest fees. Our operating costs for Holly House are approximately $35 per day, but we do not exclude any applicant on the basis of ability to pay; we count on your generous contributions to make this possible.
- You can donate money to Hypatia-in-the-Woods through PayPal Giving Fund. This method incurs no fees and provides you with a tax receipt. You do not need a PayPal account to donate.
- Remember Hypatia-in-the-Woods in your will. A bequest will ensure that you leave a lasting legacy of support for women in the arts, business, or academia, and will help us further our mission of support through residencies, while enriching our local community.
- We welcome donated materials, such as toilet paper, paper towels, hand dish washing soap, that keep Holly House stocked for residencies.
- Contact us about specific projects, such as our summer maintenance weeks. We may be in need of lumber or tools for repairs.
- Also, contact us if you have a specific item you wish to donate.
