Make a Donation. Make a Difference. Many participants could not afford to receive the information, education, networking, inspiration and healing strategies offered during the Stowe Weekend of Hope. Therefore, funding from a variety of businesses, organizations, and individuals is necessary to keep this event affordable for survivors and their families. The Stowe Weekend of Hope is a 501 c-3 not for profit organization, and your gift is tax deductible. Your contribution as a donor will have a profound impact and is what helps to make this event possible!
