A 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Collective


Your tax-deductible donation to the HeARTbeat Collective will help support the many events, programs, and scholarships we offer throughout the year.

Please check out our annual appeal letter, below, where we ask for support from our community. You can learn about what we accomplished together in 2020 and how you can make a tax deductible donation to support our scholarships and programming.

Hello Dear Supporters and Friends,

The HeARTbeat Collective has been known to be an inspiring and creative organization.
Our focus has always been to create uniquely artful gatherings inspired by nature and culture. 2020 has certainly been like no other for us.

This letter, our annual appeal is going out to all of you who are the core supporters of the HeARTbeat Collective, Forestdance and Unifier family. Together we are entering our 18th year of creating these inspiring gatherings.

We are so thankful for every one of you who has joined us over the years and contributed your knowledge, care and service to our circles. For those of you who are new here, welcome, and we hope you will join our incredible community of supporters.

For culture creators and so many arts organizations, 2020 certainly has provided a unique set of challenges.

Each year we raise a complimentary percentage of our programming costs from our community to help us meet our annual operating budget. If Unifier, Forestdance or another of our events has touched your life in a profound way, then please donate today.

In 2020 we:

  • We completed our first year operating as a recognized 501c3 organization.
  • We prepared to offer our 7th Unifier Festival, improved our systems, built relationships, and were ultimately unable to run the gathering.
  • Offered our 36th Forestdance Gathering, just as Covid-19 found its way into our lives.
  • Raised over $8k to help steward 417 acres knows as Camp Timber Trails, in Tolland, MA
  • Hosted volunteer work weekend at Camp Timber Trails where we painted cabin interiors and beautified the grounds.
  • Offered scholarships to our Forestdance Gathering
  • Did a lot of listening and witnessed the communication and fruits of our many years of networking and bringing people together. The Roots are strong.

Together in 2020 we offered many meaningful experiences, shared many healthy lessons, and inspired and cultivated leadership from so many in our community. With your support, we will offer an even brighter vision in 2021.
