Our Economic Approach

No one is turned away due to a lack of funds.

Springhouse programs are available to anyone who wants to learn a way to build culture that takes care of Life.

Our programs have fees, and we are committed to accessibility – no one is turned away for financial reasons. See our specific offerings for tuition rates. If you cannot afford the rate listed, please reach out to Chris Wolf to discuss.

When you contribute, financially and otherwise, you are investing in our vision of a world where all life thrives, and you are supporting a community that fosters connection to Life so we can better respond to the needs of the world. 

Springhouse is financially supported through program fees, grants, business sponsorships, and many individual donors. We’re especially grateful for those who support our work through a recurring donation which moves us toward sustainable growth. Support our growth today and become a monthly donor!

Our economic approach is built on

relationship, trust, and transparency.




Relationship is foundational to our economic approach. When we meet, human-to-human, we build trust and have more honest conversations about financial resources.

We trust that we will be supported as a growing and thriving nonprofit. We have faith in our work and the Life that moves through us all. We build trust by holding others’ vulnerability with confidentiality and care.

We are transparent with our budget and needs. We ask our community to be transparent about their circumstances and expect honest and timely communication if financial commitments cannot be met.

The Springhouse Budget

Every year, our staff and board come together to create the budget for the next fiscal year. Each line in the budget is carefully considered and informed by our experience operating since 2014.
