Giving Opportunities

Together, We Build a Compassionate Community.

Your financial support makes a difference in the lives of grieving children, families, and individuals.

Michael’s Place has been 100% community-funded since its inception, and our programs are provided to the individuals and families we serve without the barrier of cost. We are grateful for your investment in our mission.

It is essential that grief support services be freely available to anyone regardless of economic status, as death does not discriminate. Many families have already been financially burdened by the death of a loved one because of medical bills, funeral costs, and loss of income.  In order to continue our mission, Michael’s Place relies heavily on financial contributors to maintain operations.

There are many ways to provide financial support to Michael’s Place – some ways provide funding right away, and others allow for future giving. Gifts may be made in memory or in honor of a loved one. Please know that you will receive a receipt for your tax-deductible contribution, as Michael’s Place is a 501(c) 3 organization.
