Contribute to “Cultivating Connection to Farm, Forest, Water and Each Other”

The Crest is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that relies on donations to support our programs and give community groups the chance to experience the wonders of nature to learn about and  feel a connection to the natural world.

Lanita Witt Memorial Scholarship Fund

Your donation will help students and campers visit the ranch for educational programs offered through The Crest. 

Community cooperation and assistance was of prime importance to Lanita, who died December 15, 2022. Scholarship support allowed her to attend college, then medical school at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, support she never forgot.

Join the community of supporters who are strengthening students’ connection to Farm, Forest, Water, and Each Other.  This revolving fund will provide transportation and scholarships for students attending Summer Enrichment Programs at The Crest.
