Ensure the Future
Your generous financial support — big or small — is essential.
The Cloisters on the Platte is supported entirely by private donations. We receive no financial support from any religious institution or governmental entity.
We have never put a price tag on our retreats even though it costs between $700 and $800 to host a retreatant. Everyone’s financial situation is different, and we do not want to turn anyone away from experiencing what could be a life changing weekend. This means we need those who have the funds to donate above and beyond that $700-$800 to allow us to continue to welcome those who are unable to make such a donation.
We have been working hard to bring down our operating costs and initiate projects such as our generator addition that will ultimately provide a lifetime of savings.
Please see the financial information below including our success in minimizing operating costs and the gracious increase of donations.
