We charge nothing for our ministry, being dependent on donations -- following St. Benedict's dictum to treat all persons as if they are Christ. Our mission is:

    "To provide ecumenical Christian hospitality, welcoming persons of all faith traditions, and others seeking spiritual renewal. We provide without charge short-term opportunities for sacred time, space, and resources to facilitate silence, prayer, solitude, and renewal -- immersed in the sights and sounds of nature, away from distractions."


We welcome tax-deductible contributions to our general operating funds to sustain our ministry.

  1. A donation can be made by sending a check to HSRC. To designate your gift in honor of a loved-one, simply include the person's name with your check.

  3. You might consider a bequest in your will, avoiding probate and federal taxes. We can help you with wording for your gift.

  4. Those of you who are required to withdraw from your traditional IRAs as a taxable "Required Minimum Distribution" each year, may avoid taxes by donating to a qualified charity. To give to HSRC simply notify the firm managing your IRA of your desire.

  5. The Hermitage Spiritual Retreat Center LEGACY FUND

    The HSRC Board at its 2019 retreat thought it wise to set up a way in which those of you who can, might choose to help guarantee a future for HSRC. We selected the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation to be the host and manager of our Legacy Fund.

    A LEGACY is a gift by which the meaning of one's life is expressed and remembered, even after one's death. The Board of Directors established a Legacy Fund to encourage friends of HSRC to make lasting gifts. We invite you to consider making Hermitage Spiritual Retreat Center part of your legacy -- thereby helping to guarantee our mission into the future.
