The Permaculture Institute Inc. has operated continuously for over 25 years. A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible. See below for present funding needs.

Scholarship Fund

We are seeking donations to our scholarship fund that allow us to offer discounted rates to students who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford Permaculture education. Our courses in St. Louis, MO have high rates of scholarship need in particular. We also offer scholarships for our Peoples Diploma program for those in need. 100% of donations will go directly toward tuition offset for these three programs.

Pandemic Fund

We are currently receiving donations for funding our organization during COVID-19. Our non-profit is nearly 100% funded by revenue generated from our programs. Since the coronavirus pandemic began, we have been unable to hold in-person courses, which greatly impacts our funding stream. Any donations earmarked for this purpose will be used to get us through this pandemic so we can continue to offer life changing Permaculture education to the world.


Thank you for considering a donation to the Permaculture Institute! Please specify in the order notes upon checkout which Fund you’d like your donation to go to. Please contact us about donations over $500. All donations, large and small, are deeply appreciated.
