Healing Loss, Opening Hearts

South of Nashville, Tennessee, October 16-18, 2020

Financial Aid

The full fee (regular registration) is $590.

Early-registration discounts are available to those who pay in full at least 6 weeks early. “Sisters & Friends” discounts are available for women who register jointly with a friend or supporter.

Marie Wyler Memorial Fund

Donors contribute funds to provide financial assistance to a small number of women who are highly committed to their own growth but who cannot afford the full fee to attend.

Two types of financial assistance are available:

  • Sponsorships (or grants) range from $200 to at most US$340, applied toward the full (regular) registration fee (not to the early-registration fee)
  • Payment plans (when pre-approved by Brothers Road).

Or, you may be awarded both a partial sponsorship and a payment plan, as long as you pay at least the full minimum deposit of $250 before the event.

What is eligibility based on?

Eligibility for financial assistance is based on

  1. Your financial need
  2. Your commitment to growth and self-improvement
  3. Our available donations to cover sponsorships and payment plans for a particular event.

We have no standardized expectations as to what constitutes financial need. We will ask you about your typical monthly income and any unusual expenses or circumstances that we should consider.

Sponsorship Fund

Your tax-deductible donation to Brothers on a Road Less Traveled (registered in the U.S. as a 501c3 non-profit organization) enables women to experience the Woman Who Loves retreat — a life-changing turning point for many — who otherwise would not have the resources to participate.

Donations help cover such expenses as:

  • Renting group camps or retreat centers with large meeting rooms
  • Providing meals and accommodations for participants and volunteer staff
  • Transportation costs for certain essential staff-volunteers

You can make a donation online or mail a check to:

Brothers on a Road Less Traveled
P.O. Box 412
Ruckersville, VA 22968 USA

To discuss your donation with Brothers on a Road Less Traveled, contact Richard Wyler, Executive Director, at 1-434-227-9346 or richwyler@brothersroad.org.

How does the payment plan work?

You might be approved for a payment plan instead of — or in addition to — a partial sponsorship. For example, you will pay at least the minimum deposit of $250 in advance, then sign up online to make 4 monthly automatic payments of $85 each. 

If you have questions, contact the Brothers Road administrator at timsemler@brothersroad.org 

How do I apply for aid?

To apply for either a sponsorship or payment plan, you will need to fill out an online application AND make an initial REFUNDABLE deposit of US$250.

Go to the registration page and click on “Apply for Aid.”

If you do NOT receive all the financial assistance you need, and you therefore want to withdraw your registration, your deposit can be fully refunded, on request.

What if I can’t afford the minimum deposit in order to apply?

If you cannot afford the full deposit, pay as much of it as you can and fill out the online application. We will review your application and be in touch, and you can decide how to proceed from there.

What is the deadline for submitting the application? When will I hear the decision?

There is no hard deadline, but the earlier you apply, the more funds we will have available for financial assistance.
