While the Collegeville Institute has been mostly closed to guests this year, the Board of Directors saw an opportunity to invest in our post-pandemic future. In January 2021, they voted unanimously to begin renovations on our 54-year-old facilities. Currently, the Collegeville Institute is in Phase Two of this project.
Beautiful and accommodating lodging create an atmosphere of inspiration and well-being for our guests and enable us to be an inviting destination for thought leaders now and into the future.
We invite you to support this investment in the future of the Collegeville Institute by making a financial contribution now.
In our comprehensive campaign, we seek to raise $1.5 million to fund the building renovations.
The renovations to the Collegeville Institute’s historic facilities will maintain the original vision of renowned architect Marcel Breuer, but also to bring our facilities into the 21st-century.
Renovations: Phase One
The first phase, major apartment renovations of kitchens and bathrooms, was completed in late spring 2021.
Renovations: Phase Two
Currently, the renovation project is in Phase Two, in which the apartments’ oak parquet floors are sanded and refinished, furniture replaced, and appointments (lights, rugs, curtains, kitchen utensils, etc.) replaced. This phase will be completed by early fall 2021.
Renovations: Phase Three
In the third phase, the Collegeville Institute’s meeting and office building, the Butler Center, will be renovated and made ADA accessible. At the same time one apartment (not fully renovated during phase 1) will also be made ADA accessible.
