Ways to Give

Thank you for your interest in helping Good Grief support hundreds of grieving children and their families each year in more than 150 cities and towns throughout New Jersey. Your gift to Good Grief allows us to continue providing free services to children, teens and young adults who have experienced the death of mom, dad, sister or brother. All programs are FREE to families for as long as they need them, which on average is three years. There are many ways to make a donation to Good Grief and all contributions help us support grieving families. Please see our giving opportunities below and thank you in advance for your generous contribution.

Please contact Heather Robinson, Director of Development, at 908-522-1999 x 8010 or email heather@good-grief.orgfor questions or further information.


Circles represent unity and wholeness.
They are infinite and inclusive, providing strength and 
hope for everyone within.

Circle of Hope

$5,000, $10,000, or $15,000 per year for 3 years*

Good Grief's legacy society is called our Circle of Hope. Circle of Hope members pledge $5,000, $10,000, or $15,000 or more per year for at least three years to Good Grief, as this is the average length of time a family is enrolled in Good Grief's free peer support programs.*

Circle or Hope members help Good Grief reach additional children. We rely on these individual pledges to help us plan for the future.


Isabella’s Circle

Isabella was our first participant back in 2007. Isabella, her sister,
and their mom became part of the Good Grief family and part of our circle.
Isabella’s story is our first story.

Members of Good Grief’s
