The beautiful "Martha Minkler Way," which leads residents and the community to the heart of Dorland, was last paved over ten years ago and is currently in a state of distress. If left untreated, the cracks and potholes will widen and eventually break off, making the road impassable and compounding the expense of repairing. 

We have already received a "challenge" gift of $5,000 from the same man who funded our well a few years ago. Another special friend has pledged $4,000 toward this effort. We also believe that a private foundation will be gifting $12,500 in matching funds. These three gifts take us a long way toward our $28,000 goal, turbocharging our efforts to rebuild Martha Minkler Way.


Can you help us raise crucial, last-quarter-mile funding to repair our only lifeline to the outside world?  Would you consider supporting this effort with a gift of $1,000, $500, $250, $100 or $50? It would be so wonderful to have you join us in this important capital project.​

Please donate and help provide support to our mission.
