Resilient Retreat Receives $3.5 Million Gift from Anonymous Donor Plus $1 Million Match Opportunity for First Endowment

The Giving Coast

Resilient Retreat has received the largest-ever single donation: a $3.5 million gift from an anonymous local donor inspired by the organization’s unique approach to address trauma among survivors of abuse and those that experience trauma in the workplace. Made in honor of longtime supporter, James “Jim” Roque, who died September 27, 2021, the gift is spurred by profound concerns over community health in the wake of the COVID pandemic. Additionally, the anonymous donor has offered up to $1 million as a match for monies raised by Resilient Retreat to establish a general endowment fund. The offer is good for one year and is contingent upon completion of fundraising for the Retreat Center. When completed in 2022, the Retreat Center will be able to further expand its capacity to offer healing services to the community, including modalities like neurofeedback, yoga, meditation, massage, time in nature, gardening, and support groups as well as enhancing self-care skills through workshops on healthy cooking, journaling, and other beneficial activities.
