Become a Sponsor
Last year more than 6900 people attended weekend retreats, Days and Evenings of Prayer, and other spiritual programs here at Immaculate Heart. More than 20% of those people needed full or partial support for their retreat costs, including young people attending youth retreats, elderly people, and others who simply cannot otherwise afford to join us for spiritual renewal and rest.
Join our Sponsors’ Club with an annual gift $196 to cover the full cost of a weekend retreat, or to make a Sponsor donation of any size to support a portion of a retreat cost for one or more people.
Make a Memorial or Honorary Gift or a Donation of Any Size

Donate to The Msgr. David Rosage Endowment
The yearly dispensation from this endowment is used to assist those individuals who cannot afford to attend a retreat or day of prayer, and to support our ministry. With the diligence of Immaculate Heart’s board members and the Director, IHRC will never have to turn anyone away who wants to attend a retreat. You too can be a part of this good work by making a gift to the Mgr. David Rosage Endowment.
The Prayer Walk Legacy
When Immaculate Heart Retreat Center opened in 1959, Msgr. Rosage created The Prayer Walk as a place where visitors could take a casual stroll, and have time for quiet prayer and reflection. Prayer tiles inscribed with special intentions or in the memory of a love one were gifted by individuals and set in the walk-way. People would stop and say a short prayer or reflect on the inscription. Today, you too can continue that legacy of prayer by dedicating a Prayer Stone with your special intention which will be located among the trees between the existing paths in areas named Hope, Peace & Healing. Prayer Stones are $1,500 and your gift can be made over 18 months. For more information about Prayer Stones contant Michael Pallardy 509-448-1224 ext 105 or Email Mike
Estate Planning & Planned Giving
One of the best ways you can support Immaculate Heart Retreat Center for years to come is through a gift in your will. As you plan for the future of your estate, please consider including IHRC as a recipient of a gift. By designating a specific bequest or a portion of any asset for Immaculate Heart, you will make a lasting gift that will continue our ministry and help the people who come to IHRC seeking Hope, Peace and Healing for generations. Gifts to Immaculate Heart through bequests, and estate planning help us insure that we’ll continue to bring our retreat ministries alive for thousands of people every year, changing lives and renewing spirits. Following is example language that you can have added to your will. Example Bequest Language
