The Foundation is committed to educating the community about end of life issues. We host an annual “End-of-Life Community Conference” focusing on different themes each year.
The conference brings together nearly 300 participants to explore topics such as palliative and hospice care, cultural traditions around death, burial practices, grief, etc. If you are interested in sponsoring the conference, please click here.
We also provide the Five Wishes, advance directives booklet, free of charge to the community.
The Art of Covid
We are inspired by the kindness and creativity that has led people to make masks for themselves, loved ones and strangers.
We want to capture images of masks, along with people wearing their masks, and the stories of how they came to be, as a way of memorializing this extraordinary time in our history.
We shared the idea of capturing the images and stories with our friends at the Virtual Funeral Collective - a group of specialists who work with dying, death, and grief on a daily basis. With the help of Collective members Betsy Trapasso and Dr. Candi K. Cann we have launched this platform to collect images and stories.
