Dear Friend of Entrada:

At this festive time of year, we would like to take a minute to reflect on Entrada’s a eventful 2015 season.

As you know, we have made great progress on the new Entrada Center to be built on our own, recently purchased property with a fabulous new performing arts stage and comfortable lawn seating and other amenities for expanded programing coming on line soon. Some of you toured the site during our Friendraiser in October. For those of you who have yet to experience this developing cultural and performing arts center, we’ll be happy to arrange a tour, or send you information. You can also view plans on our website at:


We hosted many exceptional readings, concerts, residencies, festivals, science programs, youth activities, and other events this year. Even as we settle in for a sedate Torrey winter, we can hardly wait to unveil our 2016 programs, which are coming together nicely.

But here’s the thing—we can’t do it without your help. That’s why we’re asking you to support Entrada while doing your Holiday shopping (* see below opportunity) and end-of-year gift giving. It’s remarkable that as a volunteer organization we have been able to provide over twenty years of community enrichment and valuable contributions to the sciences and arts related to the Colorado Plateau. Your financial support is critical to ensuring a successful 2016 Entrada season and especially as we push ahead with implementation of the Entrada Center, a $1.2 million dollar capital campaign.

Please make your contribution by check or through our website (link below) with its secure PayPal link. You can also contact us directly and we’d be happy to meet with you to discuss giving options. Just send us an email for an appointment (address below).


On behalf of all Entrada board and volunteers, we wish you a happy holiday season!

Very best,

The Entrada Institute Board of Directors
