The Glen Helen Association has reached an agreement in principle to purchase Glen Helen from Antioch College. The Association is working to finalize the details of the purchase and hopes to reopen Glen Helen as soon as possible. Your contributions will help now and in the future.
This agreement allows the Association to move forward with plans to reopen the Glen to the public, restart its educational programs, and replenish endowments. To support those efforts, the Association has launched a capital campaign with a goal of raising $3.5 million dollars in Phase 1, with other phases to follow.
Contributions to a Save the Glen fund held by the Yellow Springs Community Foundation will go 100% toward the benefit of Glen Helen with 80% towards a purchase and 20% to the GHA Endowment for future operations of the Glen. Save the Glen is dedicated to the purchase and preservation of Glen Helen, with ownership of the Glen by the GHA. Email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that donations or contributions of any kind that are named for Glen Helen without adding Association may appear to be intended for Antioch College and may not reach the Glen Helen Association.
The Glen Helen Association was created in 1960 after successful efforts to save the Glen from a proposed highway bypass and then a sewer line that would have run across it. The GHA became a nonprofit organization in 1979 and has been helping to support Glen Helen for more than sixty years. Now the Association is moving into a new stage of supporting the Glen by taking over ownership.
