If you are not currently a member of Rainbow Families, you will have an opportunity to activate your membership ($35 annual fee) prior to registering for the conference. This will enable you to receive the member discount for the Family Conference and other events throughout the year. This option exists on-site at the conference as well.

The Family Conference is entirely self-supported and is financed by conference registration fees and the generous support of our sponsors. Because of our sponsors, we are able to offer a registration fee that is much lower than the actual per person cost to attend. Please be sure to thank our sponsors for their support of this program and our community.


Payment may be made by Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express.  Cash, check, and credit card payments will also be accepted on-site for registration on the day of the conference.

Attendance Grants

We understand that attending the Family Conference may be cost-prohibitive for some families. We do not want this to prevent anyone from benefiting from the conference. Financial assistance is available for those families experiencing financial hardship. The Rainbow Families Family Conference Attendance Grant is a need-based award and provides reduced fees or waived registration to defray the expense of attending the conference.  If you wish to request a grant, please contact Rainbow Families at info@rainbowfamilies.org.
