Become a Sustaining Member. We cordially invite everyone in our community to become Sustaining Members of Victories. This membership program will provide those who believe in our work with the opportunity to help us ensure its future. Your tax deductible membership dues of $250/year, or $25/month for 10 months, helps Victories sustain and grow.

Becoming a Sustaining Member will entitle you to a variety of benefits, including:

  • $100 off our weekends (BreakThrough, Wisdom Years, Shadow Weekend & BreakThrough II)
  • 20% off all Paths to Leadership training programs
  • Option to be included in the Sustaining Members Directory - an online listing designed to promote personal and professional networking within our community.

Weekend Staff

Victories truly appreciates the 80-100 hours that each individual gives when staffing a Victories weekend. Each staffer also receives significant personal growth benefit from staffing the weekend. There are, however, food and lodging costs for having leadership teams of ten men, on average.

Only sustaining members (those who donate $250+ per year) will be eligible to staff Victories weekends. Installment options are available (i.e., $25/month for 10 months). On January 1, 2016, this amount increased to $250.

As of July 1, 2016, in addition to the annual Sustaining Membership amount, weekend leaders and staff are asked to also pay a per weekend food and lodging staffing fee of $100. The staffing fee will partially offset the cost of food and lodging for the leadership team. Payment of Sustaining Membership and Weekend Staffing Fee must be made prior to the first staff meeting, unless on a payment plan.

As is always the case with Victories programs, this staffing policy will NOT exclude men who, due to financial constraints, are not able to become sustaining members.

Even with all the tangible benefits of membership, the most satisfying will be one that is intangible: the knowledge that you are helping us help others to experience the transformative programs that so often help men realize their dreams, become better partners and parents, and achieve greater peace of mind.

To become a Sustaining Member, please register online, or contact the office at 312.604.5013 or If you have any questions about this policy or the rationale for it, please do not hesitate to contact the Victories Office at
