donate To DME

The Divine Mercy Encounter retreat program appreciates your continued support. We currently lose money on every retreat weekend. We rely on your donations to keep our costs low for our team and retreatants. Donations can go towards costs incurred on retreat weekends (towards food and supplies). Donations can also be made specifically to our scholarship program, which allows retreatants to apply to make the weekend free-of-charge. Finally, donations can be made towards a specific item that you would like to donate to the DME retreat program (i.e. a new projector, new kitchen equipment, etc.)

The DME retreat program is an official 501(c)3 and your donation to us is tax-deductible. Receipts are provided for all donations. Questions regarding donations to DME can be sent to our Finance Director at
