Program Fees

Welcome. This is the new place to pay program fees.

Reality charges an annual program fee of $600 for participants, and our program year runs from September to August. You can pay $600 one-time or $50/month. You can also pay other fees here throughout the year (for retreats, etc.).

We never want payment to be an obstacle to participation.
Request a scholarship through First in Families here.

You can use funds through Alliance to pay for Reality program. Have your Care Coordinator reach out to to request an invoice.

If you’d like to support another Reality friend’s program fees, you can do so on the donate page here and notify us of your intention using the “Dedicate” button.

As you’ve already noticed, the program fees page looks a bit different.

As of June 1st, Reality has shifted to a new payment platform, called GiveLively. GiveLively is secure and provides much more functionality for our supporters: online receipting and a portal for folks to see past contributions and change, cancel, or increase recurring donations. We’re excited about the change.

We welcome questions or feedback about the shift, please email quinn:
