IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT OUR NEXT SEASON will mark Entrada Institute’s TWENTIETH YEAR of providing opportunities for artists, humanities scholars, writers, scientists, and performers from Utah and the surrounding region to develop and share their work. During those years, we have provided hundreds of events for thousands of you who love the Colorado Plateau, especially the Cockscomb country around Torrey, Utah.

During the next twenty years we will see new demands on the West as populations shift, livelihoods readjust, and the climate continues to change. With your help, Entrada will influence that future by providing interpretive programming, discussion forums, youth education opportunities, and development prospects for thinkers and creative types of all stripes.

The board of directors* and I invite you to help sustain the vitality of the Colorado Plateau and share the splendor of the Capitol Reef area by contributing to the Entrada Institute. It takes about $30,000 for Entrada to provide its three main programs: Saturday Sunset Series, Artist-in-Residence, and Wayne County High School Scholarships.

Our Scholarship Program for Wayne County High provides much-needed financial support for graduating students who wish to pursue a college education—this includes our new Bernice Scholl Memorial Scholarship fund.

Our Saturday Series of readings, concerts, slideshows, lectures, and other events enrich the cultural life of Wayne County while providing artists, humanities scholars and earth scientists to share their new and existing works.

Our Artist in Residence helps support the creation of new works in the Wayne County environs, while providing a housing and meals stipend and an opportunity for the artist to describe his or her experience.

In these uncertain economic times, many non-profit organizations are struggling to stay afloat. Others have shuttered their doors or significantly cut back staff and programming. Entrada is a very lean organization, run by a working board. Please help us by contributing.

Thank you for considering this invitation of support.
