From its earliest days more than 100 years ago, Lake Junaluska has relied on charitable giving to help fulfill its mission. Because of the generosity of friends, community members, guests, participants, churches and other organizations, Lake Junaluska continues to be a place set apart for transformation and renewal.

Your support today makes it possible for persons to experience this place of Christian hospitality where lives are transformed through renewal of soul, mind and body.
