Since 1998... Willow House has supported thousands of grieving children and families. Without the generous support of donors like you, we would not be here today. As you may know, the death of a parent or child often not only leaves a family emotionally overwhelmed but can also be financially devastating. Because of this, Willow House does not charge for services nor do we receive government funding or insurance reimbursements. We rely solely on individual donations, making your gift so important.
Because death ends a life, not a relationship, Willow House welcomes contributions in memory of loved ones. This presents an opportunity to remember a loved one in a meaningful way, one in which others can be helped through the darkest hours of their grief journey, and to travel to a place where hope once again becomes a possibility.
Willow House can send a personalized letter to the family noting that you have made a memorial gift in their loved one's name.
Make a donation in honor of someone special and help hundreds of grieving children and families to heal after the death of a loved one. It's a great idea for gift giving during the holidays, birthdays, or special occasions.
Willow House can send a personalized letter to the recipient, indicating that a gift has been made in their honor.
