Lost & Found Grief Center is supported totally by private funds from individuals, businesses, and foundations. We have experienced a dramatic increase in the number of families seeking support for our services in the past year. Funds are needed to cover costs of group supplies, maintenance to our facility, group coordinators, volunteer facilitator trainings, awareness of services to schools and the community, as well as administrative costs. It is a priority of the staff and board at Lost & Found Grief Center to be good stewards of the money that is generously donated to the organization.
Our current fundraising needs include:
Contributions to honor the life of a friend, colleague, or loved one who has died can make a powerful difference in the lives of our families. If you would like to make a memorial donation you can send a check with a special note or donate online
. We will make sure the family you name knows you have made the donation in memory of their loved one. These donations can be made near the time of death or on a date special to the person (birthday, anniversary, etc.)
For $1000.00 you can sponsor a child to attend group for a year. This sponsorship comes with information on the child you are sponsoring and periodic updates on their journey through the grieving process. Payment for this can be made monthly, quarterly, or in a lump sum. Checks can be sent to our office or the donation can be made by clicking here
