MAKING A DIFFERENCE
We believe that it is our responsibility to give back to our community and to be good stewards of this wonderful planet we live on.
These organizations are a few that we hold near and dear to our hearts:

We take comfort in knowing how much he was loved and how his memory will live on in the hearts of so many people whose lives he touched. We honor a life well-lived and loved.

Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is one of our favorite organizations. "Building Simple Decent Houses for People in Need". We have raised over $42,000 to build Habitat homes in Western Maryland. The "Savage River Lodge" Habitat house was built in 2009.
Donate $20 to Habitat for Humanity through SRL and your name gets entered into a drawing to win a $100 Savage River Lodge gift card -- good for lodging, dining, or in the Savage River Trading Company. Once we reach $1,000, you will get one entry for every $20 donated. Ask guest services for a donation form and we will add the charge to your reservation or dining check.
Clean the World
Through their recycling of used soap, Clean the World works to prevent unnecessary deaths caused by disease and uncleanliness. Over 5 million people die each year due to things stemming from unclean living conditions. Clean the World takes hotels' used soap, sanitizes it, and redistributes it to impoverished countries world-wide. The Lodge is proud to say that as of the end of 2015 we have donated 1,336 pounds of soap that has been turned in to 6,752 bars of soap.
Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and to care for the earth. Heifer does this by providing appropriate livestock, training and related services to small-scale farmers and communities worldwide.
Due to the volume of donation requests that we receive, the Savage River Lodge does a matching donation program. We are happy to donate a one-night stay equal to $245 for a Sunday through Thursday stay if your organization would be willing to purchase an additional night for the same rate, same date restrictions. Donation requests can take up to four weeks to process. Please submit by email.
