The TEARS Foundation
Posted By: Laurie Carpenter (August 10, 2020)
The Michigan chapter of The TEARS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to compassionately lift a financial burden from families who have lost a baby, by providing funds to assist with the cost of burial or cremation services. We also provide grief support through programs and one-on-one conversations.
We believe that every baby's life deserves to be honored and memorialized in accordance with the grieving parents' wishes, and are committed to assisting bereaved parents with this experience. But we need help from the community.
TEARS typically holds two large fundraisers each year, but COVID-19 has paused many of these events throughout the U.S. Help from Community Financial's Summer of Sharing program would allow us to continue assisting families here in Michigan; families who are dealing with an unspeakable loss during already difficult times. You have supported us before, and we hope we can count on your generosity again.
