The mission of the TerraBella Institute is to support the arts, encourage the preservation of nature through charitable giving in our growing community.
In 2018 portions of all proceeds from all of the TerraBella Institute events will benefit New Heights Therapeutic Riding Center.
New Heights is a premier therapeutic equestrian center dedicated to positively impacting lives through the healing power of the horse and is dedicated to helping people who have physical, cognitive, and emotional difficulties reach their full potential.

It is through the charitable giving from neighbors, students, professionals, business, and volunteers that we are able to support local charities.
The vision is to create a place where people come together to celebrate the arts, nature and life. To create an art village for education, displaying art works from local artists and students. Within the village, build several cottages for visitors and a small outdoor theater to support the cultural arts in our community and to teach our children the value of love, serving and giving back. Create a neighborhood full of fresh food, fresh air and focused on well being with a community garden where neighbors and students can plant, grow and visit with each other. Become a wellness community connected to nature were mentors can pass on the value of wellness.
It is our goal for 2018 to host 12 family events including outdoor concerts, family movie night, an annual Art Walk, Pumpkin Patch, Christmas event and host several 5K runs.
Our concerts are a way to provide fun family events where we host a raffle, live music and invite local food vendors all with a mission to serve, support and give back. The art walk is an opportunity for local artist to promote their work with 100% of the sales to the artists. The Pumpkin Patch is a chance for all ages to participate in a food drive to benefit the Northshore Food Bank and our Christmas event will be a coat drive for the homeless. Last year we collected over 500lbs of food and several car loads of coats.
Being a non-profit, our success is dependent on community support and all donations are tax deductible.
