Financial Aid

Sponsorship Fund

Your tax-deductible donation to Brothers on a Road Less Traveled (formerly “People Can Change,” registered in the U.S. as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) enables women to experience A Wife’s Healing Journey — a life-changing turning point for many — who otherwise would not have the resources to participate.

Fees and donations cover such expenses as:

  • Renting group camps or retreat centers with large meeting rooms
  • Providing meals and accommodations for participants and volunteer staff
  • Airline tickets to fly in certain volunteer staff

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

Registration Fee

The regular cost for A Wife’s Healing Journey weekend is US$595.

Marie Wyler Memorial Fund

Funds have been donated 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), and a pre-approved payment plan. Sponsorships are at least US$150 and at most US$345. Alternatively, you might be approved for a payment plan instead of — or in addition to — a partial sponsorship.

What is eligibility based on?

Eligibility for financial assistance is based on

  1. Your financial need
  2. Your commitment to personal growth and inner healing
  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 look at all the requests for assistance that we have received for a particular weekend by 3 to 4 weeks before that event, look at the amount of donations we have available for that weekend, and make decisions from there.

How much are the sponsorships?

Sponsorships (or grants) are at least US$150 and at most US$345. The full fee of the weekend is US$595, so even if you are awarded the maximum sponsorship, you will still need to pay at least US$250 yourself.

How does the payment plan work?

You might be approved for a payment plan instead of — or in addition to — a partial sponsorship.

With a payment plan, you pay at least US$250 before the weekend and bring with you four signed checks of $85, $850, $85 and $90, post-dated for each of the four months following the weekend.

EXAMPLE: If you were attending a January 15 event, you would make the original US$250 deposit before the event and then bring with you four checks, dated February 15 for $85, March 15 for $85, April 15 for $85, and May 15 for $90.

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 online application and registration page.

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

What if I can’t afford the US$250 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.

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

Sponsorship applications must be received by 4 weeks before the event you hope to attend. Our intention is to advise you of our sponsorship decisions 3 weeks before the event.

We will also consider applications received less than 4 weeks in advance, but all funds available for that weekend may already have been distributed.

The deadline for any remaining amount due is 7 days before the start of A Wife’s Healing Journey weekend for which you have registered (unless you have been pre-approved for a payment plan, in which case you will need to bring post-dated checks with you to the event).
