Why Support the Arete Project?

  • We’re preparing a diverse new generation of civic and environmental leaders, empowered with the knowledge, skills, and passion to better their communities and the world.
  • We provide a transformative, expansive education. We pursue learning not for grades, but out of desire for true understanding of the world, the self, and others.
  • We apply a unique approach to leadership. There are no simulated scenarios at Arete – only the questions encountered in real life, democratic governance, and organizational operation.
  • Your dollar goes far. Arete Project programs cost roughly $500 per student per week.
  • Your donation is 100% tax deductible. The Arete Project is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Thank you for being a part of this important work!

Our Capital Campaign

In spring 2019, the Arete Project kicked off a $1.2 million capital campaign towards the purchase and development of the Good River Campus – an 18-acre riverfront parcel near Glacier Bay National Park – destined to be the long-term home for our programs. We invite you to consider making a capital pledge as we realize this long-held dream. For further information – or to request a copy of our case statement or business plan – please contact Executive Director Laura Marcus at laura@areteproject.org
