When you or someone you know takes advantage of the services we have assembled at GriefSupportServices.org or TeenSupportPlace.org it is with a hand extended, either to receive or help deliver needed support. The reasons people visit are as varied as the services this website brings them. And sometimes, the result is a user’s donation as a token of thanks.
It has been as costly as it has been rewarding for us to offer dynamic online memorials, tributes and private messages, to assemble a network of grief experts and to provide so many forums for peer help and self-expression. We are devoted to encompassing the many sources of personal grief and to offering help and ways to heal.
But to maintain this array of services available to all, and continue to meet a worldwide demand via the Internet, a nonprofit charity such as ours needs ongoing support in many forms.
Please choose from among the many ways listed below that you can contribute to Grief Support Services Inc. and our mission to lessen the impact grief and loss. We welcome our visitors to utilize our offerings as long as they feel the need. We sincerely hope you are on a journey to a better situation. While you’re here, if you would be so kind, pause long enough to see how you can leave a few drops of healing spirit behind for others, in the form of a contribution. You can consult with your accountant or financial advisor about these categories of giving for specific recommendations to structure a gift that best fits your financial and family situation and provides the best tax outcome for you.

  • Personal Financial Planning: Your Will
  •  
    Having a will is one great idea, and remembering us
    In it is another.
    Assistance with drafting your will may come from your attorney or a self-service approach such as BuildAWill.com.
     
    You may remember us in your will in a number of ways: with cash gifts, real or personal property or proceeds from a life insurance policy or retirement plan. Your “Legacy of the Heart” to us will endure through the many services we can provide to others, or contact us about targeting your bequest to build or sustain a specific program or service, or possibly for “scholarships” allowing others who could not donate to obtain beneficial services.

    Of course, you can continue to earn income or build equity early or late in life while sharing with us and still planning for your future and that of your heirs.
     
  • Gifts of Real Estate or Property

  • A Gift of Stock or Securities

  • Retirement Plan Proceeds
  •  
    Proceeds from pensions or 401(k) retirement plans that you may not find essential may become sources for charitable donations as well. Whether you build this into your plans for redeeming these benefits or as part of your will, it could present tax advantages for either you or your heirs.
     
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • You can make Grief Support Services a beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Or to reduce the taxability of your estate, provide a major gift and replace the lost proceeds to your heirs with a new life insurance policy payable to a trust, which could allow your heirs to receive the proceeds with advantageous tax treatment.
