How Are Funds Used?


Support Groups

All of our widow support groups, counseling and resources are provided at no cost to those who’ve lost their life partner.

4 monthly support groups throughout Grand Rapids

Office Space & Supplies

We keep our costs as low as possible, however, funds for things like rent, utilities, and supplies are always welcomed to allow us to invest all we have into what we do for widows.

1 month’s rent = $625


Outreach to those who are newly widowed, and keeping them informed of support groups, social activities and other helpful resources are often best done by mail. Funds are used for our monthly newsletter, informational mailings and event invitations.

1 Newsletter Mailing = $400
