Donating to Focus on the Family’s National Institute of Marriage

We are honored that you are considering joining us in this amazing calling of “Saving Marriages and Inspiring Couples toward Greatness” … THANK YOU.  Here are just a few of the ways you can invest in the lives of the couples we serve.

Scholarships for the Intensive Marriage Counseling Programs

Every year we provided hundreds of scholarships couples helping reduce the cost of the Intensive Marriage Counseling Programs. Last year we awarded over $250,000 in scholarships that were made possible by partners and alumni from around the world. >> Donate to NIMmarriage_counseling_couple_1

Pastoral Scholarships

Every full time Pastor or Missionary inquiring about NIM’s Intensive Marriage Counseling Programs are offered a $1,000 scholarship. These scholarships make our counseling programs more accessible for those that are serving in this type of full time ministry. Many of these scholarships currently are not funded, and are underwritten by NIM’s operating budget.>> Donate to NIM

General Funds

Approximately 70% of our operating budget is funded through our fee-based services. The remaining amount is underwritten by our friends and partners who give generously to support to ministry that is provided to all the couples we serve throughout the year.>> Donate to NIM

Research and Development

In addition to changing lives through direct services to couples, we are dedicated to learning more and more about helping couples in crisis. Our goal is to find meaningful ways to influence the work with couples through out the nation by counselors, pastors and laity. We would love to discuss some of our current projects with you.>> Donate to NIM

In May of 2010, our friends and partners made purchasing this amazing property possible and over the last few years the dream of having a place that could be dedicated to offering a “refuge for marriages” has become a reality. Over the years we have been able to make several significant changes to this property through the generosity of our donors. The following is a small list of some of our most significant changes;

  • Renovated and opened 4 counseling rooms in the main building
  • Renovated and opened 3 overnight guest rooms in the main building
  • Added on an Administrative Area
  • Added a commercial kitchen area
  • Built a Chapel
  • Built and opened 5 private Cottages
