The Vipassana organization I looked into did not accept money --that would conflict with the Vipassana 'ethic'(for lack of a better word).
They provide lodging and food. I think they may take donations after one has gone through the regiment. I'm not sure about that though.

I Did not try it because I could not get the time off. It seems to be extremely challenging though. For example, talking is not allowed accept at the designated times. And meditating most of the day can be very difficult for a new comer.

It sounds absolutely legit and sincere -which is not something that can be said for most of these type of things.

oh wait now I remember -I think they prefer to ask you to 'repay' them by passing on the knowledge of Vipassana to others.
