Plans are underway to put up the first major new building in the history of Holsby. In keeping with our vision of promoting both spiritual and physical health, Holsby is developing a beautiful new multi-purpose facility called “The Well” (Brunnen in Swedish). Located between the Chapel and the historic well, this new building meets the need for an attractive gathering place for physical activity year round.
The total cost is 1.7 million U.S. dollars. We already have $1.1 million in donations and other funds set aside for this project. We have been given a line of credit for the other $600.000 that will need to be paid off in ten years. We would prefer not to have to borrow from the bank, so it continues to be our goal to have the majority of this project paid off before it’s finished next fall. So we still need your help to raise the rest of the money.
You will find below several different options for donating to “The Well” building project. Make your choice depending on your country of residence and preferred method of payment. Convenient options are available for credit card donors to make monthly recurring payments where you can set the amount, the number of payments and when you want those payments to end.
Donate by credit card from anywhere in the world, either as a one-time gift or in recurring payments (e.g. $50 or $100 per month)
If you are a U.S. resident and would like a tax-deductible receipt, you can donate by credit card, either as a one-time gift or in recurring payments (e.g. $50 or $100 per month).
Checks should be made out to “Torchbearers” and designated to “The Well at Holsby.” U.S. residents will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Send your checks (one-time gift or recurring payments) to the following address:
P.O. Box 2620
Estes Park, CO 80517
You can make a bank transfer designated to “The Well at Holsby Spende” through the Bodenseehof Torchbearer center or set up a recurring payment (Dauerauftrag). Your gift will be tax-deductible for German tax considerations and you will receive a “ Spendenbescheinigung.”

As the project progresses, this page will be updated with new information, pictures and details. Feel free to share this information with other friends of Holsby, your family and anyone who might be interested in helping us make this project happen.
The company that will build the gym is Axel Andersson and Son. This local company has already had a lot of experience in building sport facilities, including a large gym at the high school in Vetlanda.
