Program Costs Are AffordableEach community has a non-refundable registration fee per couple, which reserves your place at the weekend. These fees vary by community, as there are differences in the cost of accommodations and the average number of couples attending from community to community. Your local Retrouvaille community arranges and pays for all of your meals and hotel room, and the low registration fee helps us welcome couples from any walk of life. Additionally, no couple is ever denied the chance to heal their marriage because they are facing financial difficulties and assistance may be available.
Retrouvaille is a Non-Profit Ministry
Retrouvaille is self-supporting by the couples that attend the program, and is entirely volunteer-run. It is not funded through any particular church or denomination.
There are a limited number of spaces available per weekend. Reservations are confirmed on a "first-come, first-serve" basis. Many times there is a waiting list, so it is important to reserve as soon as both spouses agree to participate.
If you and your spouse decide to register on-line, you may elect to pay your non-refundable registration fee to reserve your space with a credit or debit card or you may send a check. If you cannot afford the fee, please let us know so we can work with you.
Each community endeavors to offer a low registration fee, to help us welcome couples from any walk of life. The registration fee only holds your space, but does not cover the actual costs the community pays for a couple to attend. We are a self-supporting, non-profit organization, so on the weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to make a donation to cover your program expenses and “pay it forward” so that other couples may have the chance to change their lives, just as you will have done. Registration Couples from each community can provide you with the amount of the registration fee and an estimated amount for the weekend donation request.
There are many couples who would benefit greatly from our program; however, they may not attend because of financial difficulties. Your weekend donation not only covers the direct expenses of your program, but enables returning military, unemployed and underemployed couples, or those who are going through a difficult time to take advantage of our program at a reduced cost. While there is a non-refundable registration fee and each community will provide a suggested donation, we make it very clear on the weekend that the attending couples pay what they are able to comfortably pay. Each Retrouvaille community will provide donation receipts, as donations may be tax deductible under the extent of the law.
