“Giving thanks” is something we do often here at Eagle’s Nest and The Outdoor Academy. We give thanks for lifelong friendships, sharing meals, challenging ourselves and others, and for the experiences we all share in our inclusive, intentional community.

This time of year, we invite you to give thanks and show your appreciate for Eagle’s Nest and The Outdoor Academy by making a gift to our Annual Fund. Each year, we raise money for scholarships to bring new campers and students to 43 Hart Road, and we wouldn’t be able to do so without the support of our incredible donors and supporters.


You can make your gift online on our new online giving platform at https://www.enf.org/donate/. Make a one-time gift, or become a Fire Keeper and set up a recurring monthly, quarterly, or annual gift to the fund of your choice. You can also mail a check to 43 Hart Road, Pisgah Forest, NC 28712.

Interested in making a stock gift or including ENF if your estate plans? Contact the Development Office at development@enf.org or 828-877-4349.


Other ways to give to ENF include donating new or slightly used outdoor clothing and gear to our Gear Lending Library. The Gear Lending Library strives to provide the necessary clothing and gear to our participants so that they can have more equitable and enjoyable experiences in the natural world.


You can also link your Amazon account to ENF at smile.amazon.com to donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to ENF, and the donation will be made at no extra cost to you. Link now
