The Innermost House Foundation is a philanthropic organization dedicated to seeking a living unity of Truth, Beauty and Goodness as expressed in the heroic ideal of "plain living and high thinking."
This ideal unites East and West, North and South, Heaven and Earth. It unites Ancient and Modern, Feminine and Masculine, Youth and Age, Rich and Poor, Black and White. It unites Labor and Learning, Innocence and Experience, Contemplation and Action. It unites Life in the Woods and Life in the World.
Our living foundations consist in the friends who voluntarily give their time, counsel, resources and example to the vision of a practical idealism renewed at its roots. We are a conversation of friends, dedicated to a living ideal.
