Financial Donations

St. Francis of the Woods exists to provide a place of rest and renewal in the beautiful sacred landscape of North Central Oklahoma. We are a not-for-profit organization and your donation is tax-deductible.  

Your contributions to St. Francis of the Woods help us continue to provide this sacred space on a donation basis. We practice Franciscan stewardship of our land, so donations go toward ecological and educational projects and programs including our native prairie restoration project, the Hildegarden which we are expanding to be more sustainable and educational while feeding those in need in our community, and to the scholarship fund for students wishing to attend Prairiewood Forest School through which we host nature-immersed classes for ages 2-16.

Prairiewood Forest School Scholarships

We help kids connect to nature, self, and community through Prairiewood Forest School classes. For each class, we offer scholarships so that youth in foster care can attend at no cost. For Friday classes, we also offer scholarships to Coyle Public School students, since our neighboring school district does not meet on Fridays.​

To help fund these scholarships, you can donate $25 for a single class or $220 for a full season of classes. Any other amount designated 'Prairiewood Forest School' will also go toward student scholarships!

Sponsor a Bunny

Aren't they adorable!? Rabbits are an integral part of our regenerative gardening practices, as well as friendly ambassadors as we introduce children and youth to animal care and holistic garden management. Your $25/month recurring donation set up at the link below will sponsor one of our rabbits' food, housing, and vet costs... and entitle you to bunny visits in the garden!
