Donations help to provide for the upkeep of the Episcopal House of Prayer and subsidize our work so that we are able to keep our retreats affordable. Our pledge to you is that we will be good stewards of your gifts. We are working hard to keep fundraising and promotion expenses low and maintain the House in a responsible way. You can designate your gift for the Bishop Anderson Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships to retreatants who are in school or facing financial hardship.
We do not receive financial support from Saint John’s University or Abbey or the Episcopal Church of Minnesota. As an independent non-profit, we depend on fees and donations for all operating expenses.
You can make a single or recurring gift to the House of Prayer on your credit card or directly from your bank account. Click on the “Donate Now” button or click here for our secure online donation form.
