Donations and Premiums

Our Promise:

100% of your donation supports the World Institute for Extreme Beauty.

The years 2020 and 2036 mark separate 200-year-old anniversaries.  In the 1820s, mineral ore was first discovered in the rock hills of the Walker House property, home of the World Institute for Extreme Beauty (the Institute).  The Walker House itself, in its earliest incarnation, started as a simple shelter in stone in 1836.  At 200 years old, the property and the Walker House will be old enough to be financially solvent so that the marriage between the Walker House and the Institute can remain strong for the next two hundred years.

The Vision 200 Campaign is working to attain numerous goals for the years 2020 and 2036, and all of them aim at setting the Walker House grounds, the Walker House itself, and the World Institute for Extreme Beauty on firm footings financially.  The world needs the beauty of the Walker House grounds as well as the Walker House, and the innovative and helpful programs of the Institute for hundreds of years to come.  It’s a vision worth supporting, and you can do it at any level you wish.  You can make a donation, name a room at the Walker House, or endow the position of the person who heads the Institute and the Walker House.

An Invitation

Naming Rights

Are you interested in honoring in perpetuity someone dear to you?  You can name one of the art galleries or rooms after the person you love, and the space will be known thereafter by the name you designate.  A beautiful handcrafted plaque naming the space will be placed at the room’s entrance, a history (with pictures of the honoree) will be written by writers at the Walker House and kept in a place of honor in the room, and all publicity related to the room will include the name of the honoree. This is a unique opportunity to keep the presence of the person you love alive and to make him or her known to guests of the Walker House before they travel home to all parts of the world.  In this way, your loved one becomes part, with the Walker House, of living history.

Please email Dan if you want to discuss the naming of a space in the Walker House.

Endowed CEO Position

Are you interested in naming and endowing the position of Chief Executive Officer, the person who leads the Institute and heads the Walker House?  The Institute must compete with well capitalized corporate organizations for its CEO.  By endowing the CEO position, you will guarantee that the Institute will compete on a level playing field for the best and brightest leader available.  Your generous gift will have the most significant impact on the growth and reputation of the Institute and the Walker House.
