I live here, I give here

Amplify Austin

With grateful hearts, we thank you for any way that you choose to support Eremos during Amplify Austin and beyond.

In our 5th year of participation, we thank you in advance for helping Eremos fulfill its mission—more vital than ever in this time of great change in our country—of helping people step back from the busyness of life to behold the mystery of God dwelling within. From the intimacy of this communion, people experience a sense of peace and oneness that empowers them to love others more fully.

Please join us virtually between 8:00pm and 9:00pm on THURSDAY, MARCH 2nd to make a donation to Eremos…

OR, if that’s not convenient for you, you can schedule your donation in advance (right now, if you want!).

  • Early Donations
  • Magic Hour Donations
  • Still To Go!
  • Minimum suggested donation is $25. We appreciate anything you and your friends can do to support Eremos, especially during our ‘appointed hour’. A $1000 bonus would be a tremendous blessing to our community. We were thrilled to win the bonus two years in a row. Let’s do it again!
  • For each donation made within the hour window of 8pm – 9pm on March 2nd, we will be lighting a candle (we can view donations in real time on line). Our vision is to have a table filled with the Light of the Eremos community & friends!

You’re welcome to make a donation anytime during the 24 hour online giving period or schedule it in advance. We’re simply focusing on the 8pm to 9pm hour as the time we hope to win a $1000 bonus.

We’ll be posting pictures on Facebook throughout the hour.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 in Amplify Austin!

(We got really close last year!)

Your donation will be used to support:

Scholarships for spiritual direction, workshops, and retreats
($60 pays for one spiritual direction session).

We provided +200 scholarships for spiritual direction sessions in 2016 and helped individuals participate in workshops and retreats who couldn’t financially afford it. Our objective is to enable people to attend the programs that will nourish them, regardless of their ability to pay.

General Operating Fund

We are working diligently to upgrade our infrastructure to handle our exciting growth. Our small staff of two would greatly appreciate the ability to bring in part-time contractors to help us better meet the needs of our community.

If you make a monthly donation to Eremos, we encourage you to schedule the March payment during the Amplify Austin event, especially our targeted time of 8pm-9pm on Thursday, March 2nd.

Please invite your friends to join us. No one will be added to our mailing or contact list unless they desire to be added, so friends can safely make a one-time gift to support Eremos without concern about being asked to donate again.

“I truly don’t know where I’d be today without Eremos where I can find a few moments of silence and sanity in this hectic world.”

Next Steps:


Mark your calendar!

Mark your calendar to make a $25 donation or more to Eremos between 8pm and 9pm on THURSDAY, March 2nd.

If you just can’t do that then, any donation between 6pm Thursday, March 2nd and 6pm Friday, March 3rd would be greatly appreciated.


Invite Your Friends!

Invite Your Friends and Family to help us win a $1000 bonus by making a donation of $25 or more at the appointed time.

Like Eremos on Facebook!

If you’re on Facebook, please “Like” our page and spread the word when we make posts as we get close to the appointed day and time and look for our pictures of the “table of light.”

We’ll be opening the 8pm hour on the 8th with a reading of To Come Home to Yourself, a blessing by John O’Donohue. We’ll be holding the vision of our Eremos community being touched by this blessing wherever you are.
