Annual Giving

Gretna Glen counts on annual giving to maintain our property. Contributions to our general fund help offset the cost of running a facility that is over 60 years old and allows for upgrades to serve our campers and guests in a comfortable safe environment.

Pathway to Our Future Finance Initiative

Gretna Glen is blessed with a retreat lodge and maintenance building/apartments that were built in 2004/2005. This finance initiative is working to pay the mortgage of $690,000 off on these buildings early to save us approximately $246,000 in interest. Our payoff as of December 2019 is $121,000.  The retreat lodge and maintenance building still have the opportunity to be named after someone with a gift of 50% of the cost of the building. 

Capital Giving

Our commitment to not only maintain our site, but to continually upgrade our facilities so that we provide our guests with an environment that allows them to be renewed and refreshed for good works is a constant process. Our master plan is designed so that we can continue to provide space for campers and guests of all abilities to enjoy this great space. If you would like to name a building after yourself, a family member, or an organization, please contact us.
