"Dunrovin is safe and beautiful and fun." - Middle school student on LEAD Encounter retreat

Kids can be goofy and carefree, as they play in Dunrovin's green spaces. These same kids, just a few days before, avoided stepping outside their inner-city homes for fear of gunshots and drug lords. For 23 years, LEAD (Leadership Experience At Dunrovin) has created a safe haven to transform lives of underserved youth. Students are able to play in the beauty of God's creation at Dunrovin for no cost because of your generosity.

When children feel safe, they are able to open their hearts to the love and hope God offers them. This encounter permeates everything we do at Dunrovin. 

Join us in our 2022 Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation challenge grant:

$10,000 in support of Twin Cities LEAD programs for low-income middle school students and the high school teens who serve them in a dynamic retreat experience.

"Thank you so much for this opportunity. This was an unforgettable experience that I will treasure forever." - Teen Leader

Your donation directly brings low-income students from the Twin Cities Catholic schools on life-changing LEAD Encounter retreats. Even one day away from inner-city stress helps these students recognize a life beyond poverty. Please help us bring the kids to their Happy Place where they can encounter God's love.

"Our counselors are so busy meeting the students' needs since the pandemic. They really need an experience like Dunrovin. Thank you for offering it to us."
- School Principal

"I learned that I am worth something, so next time I think I am not worth much, I will remember Dunrovin." -Middle school student from the inner-city
