We started the Sister Scholarship fund a few years ago so that the lack of financial abundance won’t prevent those from attending our retreats that really feel the call to come. These retreats are not about making tons of money for us as a staff so we do whatever we can to make it work for you to join us.. Our intention and goals are about empowering womyn, bringing sisters together, filling up with inspiration, nourishment and sisterhood during these crazy confusing times. We know many of our guests who attend are stay at home mamas, teachers, farmers and healers and many of those ‘jobs’ don’t offer a huge salary so we just want you to know that we’ve got your back a little here:)
A few months before each retreat, we start raising money to funnel into the sister scholarship fund. Usually we raise funds through having a raffle. Many generous, incredible people around the country offer gifts, donations and really cool offerings to the raffle and then we sell tickets.
Tickets are $5 a piece, and 100% of the funds go towards sending ladies to the retreat. Usually we end up with $500-700 and then disperse it to the applicants who have applied for assistance.
Funds are available on a first come, first serve basis and we ask that if you think you will be needing any financial assistance to attend that you contact us as soon as we start promoting the upcoming retreat. We only raise so much money and it can only be spread so far, so know that at a certain point, we do run out of funds and for that we are sorry…. For the summer retreats there is a some room for work trade and we LOVE helping hands on our farm so that may also be an option.
***Folks can pay for the tickets in cash, check or via PayPal to Korigvt@yahoo.com
You don’t have to be local to buy tickets or to win the gifts
