The Haven Foundation
The Haven Foundation was established to help people take Haven programs when they may lack to funds to pay for it themselves. Through financial aid, the foundation provides opportunities for those people to pursue Haven teachings when they otherwise may not have the opportunity.

The purpose of Haven Foundation is to ensure that The Haven remains vital and sustainable for generations to come. Its principle focus is the raising and allocation of funds to enhance the quality of our programs and facilities and to provide financial assistance to participants who might otherwise be unable to attend.
Nearly 30 years ago, Bennett Wong and Jock McKeen co-founded The Haven on the belief that people can best learn, grow, answer their own questions, and make life choices through a willingness to learn and explore. On January 1 2004, ownership of The Haven was transferred to Haven Foundation. Ben and Jock and a small number of forward-thinking Haven supporters established a not-for-profit, federally registered educational charitable organization to ensure that The Haven continues in perpetuity.

One of the most important recent achievements of the Board of Directors of Haven Foundation was the launch in June 2010 of the 2010-15 Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan is a fully funded, specific plan with several concrete initiatives designed to ensure a solid future.. These initiatives are designed to both build on what we already do well, providing transformational programs in a group setting, and address some long-standing issues, such as the ongoing maintenance of the property. It is the Board's hope that the Strategic Plan will be the blueprint for The Haven's future success.
I would like to express my gratitude towards everyone who has donated to the financial aid program at the Haven. There are times in peoples' lives when they are ready to grow and move on to a better way of living and they just don't have the means to do so. For me...it was a life-changing experience.
