School House Furniture

Landmark Learning is the only nationally-accredited school of its kind, serving professionals and recreationists in the outdoor industry. Our students come from all over the globe to build their resumes and grow into their professions. Our school is also 100% student tuition-funded - we have no endowment, no state or federal support. Additionally, as guides, our students are often in financial need and seeking financial aid to assist them with course costs and living expenses. To satisfy the student financial need, the Directors came together with other like-minded faculty to form a 501c3 (The Landmark Foundation) that seeks donations to offset applicants' expenses. We are supporting a small number of students now, but want to reach out to more folks who need assistance. To enhance the course experience and create a go-to site specifically designed to manage the unique lifestyles and needs of their students, the Directors have taken out a personal loan to finance a state-of-the art wilderness campus in Cullowhee, NC. Though the overall build has stayed on time and within budget, land management, weather, and water management issues have tapped into the additional funds set aside for managing the finishings and furnishings that will complete the Cane Creek Lodge. We need classroom tables and chairs, and cafeteria tables and chairs. We're set to open in May, 2016! Please consider helping our much-deserving students and offsetting the cost of furniture for their school.
