Refunds and Scholarships

Seasonal Program and Retreat Scholarships

In the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi, we welcome everyone in their search for spiritual healing, growth and renewal. We do not wish to turn anyone away because of hardship or inability to pay. Tau Center offers full and/or partial scholarships to assist with participating in our spirituality programs for those who need assistance. Scholarships are available once per person, per program season, depending on the individual circumstances.

If you wish to inquire about a Spiritual Program Scholarship, please fill out and submit the scholarship form on the right, and we will contact you soon. If you are approved for assistance, the scholarship amount will be applied after you have registered for the program.

Refund Policy

Refunds will be granted if requested 30 or more days prior to the scheduled event, unless otherwise noted during event registration. Eventbrite registration fees are NON-REFUNDABLE. There will be no refunds given if requested less than 30 days prior to the scheduled event. If an event is cancelled by Tau Center for any reason, all registered participants will receive a full refund.

Registration Transfers to Another Individual

Program registrations are transferrable. If you cannot attend the event, you may give your seat to a friend or family member in your place. Please let us know in advance of an attendance change by calling 630-909-6805.

Registration transfers between programs is not available at this time.

Inclement Weather Cancellations

We are all too aware that weather in our area can be unpredictable. Tau Center will attempt to make program cancellation decisions no later than 10:00am on the given day of an evening program, and 6:00pm the evening before for a morning program.

  • We will send an email cancellation notice out to all registered participants should a program be cancelled due to inclement weather. In addition, a voice message will be recorded on the Tau Center main information line at 630-909-6805.
  • You can also visit our Current Programs to see if we have marked a specific program "CANCELLED".
  • In the event of a cancellation, please refer to the refund policy above.

The safety of our program participants and staff is a priority for Tau Center during inclement weather decisions. So, we thank you for your patience and understanding at these times.

"My experience in the [Tau Center] program was profound. In the past six months I have changed jobs so that I am working in an environment that is aligned with my inner desires. It hasn’t been easy but I continue to journal and look forward to coming back to Tau Center soon."
