Join Us For Our Annual Fundraiser!



















We began the Fund-A-Cause appeal at the 14th Annual Shenanigans.
This paddle-raiser style event helps to generate funds for a specific cause.


Our first year, through the boundless generosity of our guests, we were able to purchase 20 new mattresses which provide rest and serenity to our more than 9000 annual guests. Last year, the funds raised by the Fund-a-Cause campaign went to support visitors who stay at Shalom in our Peace Haven apartment as they care for a loved one who may be ill or dying at nearby hospitals, healthcare facilities, or nursing homes, or those attending a funeral in the area, similar to the mission of “Ronald McDonald House.”


This year, as Shalom celebrates 30 years of providing a sacred space and peaceful place to our community, we recognize that in order to sustain our life-transforming ministry and continue to offer spirituality-focused programming to the area, we are seeking donations for scholarship endowment and funds to keep program costs affordable to individuals seeking spiritual fulfillment who may not be able to afford our diverse offering of programs designed to guide and enlighten them on their spiritual journeys.


With your donation, you may choose to: underwrite a speaker/presenter for programs or retreats, provide scholarship money to support individuals in need so that they are able to attend our programs or retreats, or subsidize/offset the associated costs of a program or retreat in order to keep the requested offering affordable for everyone.


The Fund-A-Cause appeal kicks-off at Shalom Shenanigans, but continues after, so you may donate at any time!

Please remember to earmark for Fund-A-Cause.

Shalom Shenanigans, as a fundraiser, assists our operations on an annual basis. We appreciate your ongoing support!


We set a goal of $25,000 for our 2019 Fund-A-Cause Appeal and thus far we’ve raised $2,100!

This life transforming ministry was begun in 1989 by Sr. Marie Therese Kalb OSF who recently shared her early dreams for the Center and her hopes for the future:

“A retreat center is a holy place — a God space — in a peaceful environment. It offers hospitality and hope, inspiration and challenge — calling people to God and to fullness of life. I believe that our culture has a real and deep hunger for God, yet God has all but been squeezed out of our lives! Sports... money... politics... technology... clothes — whatever — you name it — the cacophony of our lives in many ways has drowned out God’s presence today! There’s little or no chance (let alone desire) to develop a relationship — a friendship with GOD.

“We need Holy places... God spaces... Peaceful environments. We need to be reminded down deep that we hunger for hope, for inspiration — for God’s voice calling us to fullness of life! To me, that’s the role and the challenge of a retreat center in 2019 — and beyond!”


With your support, Shalom will continue to offer life-changing programs and retreats to meet the spiritual needs of adults in the tri-state area, by providing hospitality, peace, hope, and direction.
