We’ve added up the staff time, space, and food costs to convene the event and it costs Sojourners about $950 a person. That’s a lot! But sponsors, foundations, and gifts from individuals help us to reduce those costs dramatically and provide reduced rates and scholarships for many attendees.

Our sliding scale of payment options is as follows, with limited scholarships available beyond these rates:

  • Benefactor Rate ($950): This rate is the true cost of attending The Summit. We encourage those with the ability to pay this rate to do so to underwrite the planning and production of The Summit.
  • Partner Rate ($495): For those employed by an organization that is able to cover the participant’s registration costs.
  • General Rate ($350): For those attending from startup organizations or for individuals paying their own registration costs.
  • Emerging Leader Rate ($195): For student leaders and those who are new faith/justice practitioners in their fields of expertise.

The children will be engaged in various age-appropriate activities throughout the day in a room just off the main hall, close to where the salons, convenings, and trainings are taking place. Parents will be able to check in on their children throughout the day if necessary, and the children will join their parents for all meals in the ballroom.

Building The Summit is a year-long collaborative process with Sojourners and its leadership networks.
